Kids Martial Arts & More Ages 3-14yrs

At CMA we offer a variety of kids martial arts classes to Canberrans. CMA isn’t a club where kids are pushed to either be a black belt or nothing else. We believe that your child’s self-defence journey must be filled with true learning – and that includes making mistakes and learning at a pace that makes sense for them. Martial Arts learning is a culture, not something that can be picked up over-night. Our martial arts sessions to kids that align with Our Values, in the end we want to help you raise amazing people.

Pre-Martial Arts

We have 2 programs available for the kids 3 years to 6 years. Before the age of 7, it’s time to focus on the FUNdamentals of Fun, Safety, Fitness, Coordination, Fun, Listening Skills, and Noise!



  • Tiny Tigers 3-4yrs (Fundamentals)
  • Little Tigers 5-6yrs (Taekwondo/Hapkido Pre-Program)
  • Littlejitz 5-8yrs (Juniors Brazilian JiuJitsu)

Tiger Martial Arts

The kids are now better placed to start to learn through a syllabus system with ranks/belts, testing and learning more skills. We blend them in with older kids too, and they take their time – this is a busy time for kids and learning to be part of a bigger class (and all the responsibilities that come with that).


  • Hapkido Tigers 5-13yrs
  • Taekwondo 5-13yrs
  • Littlejitz 5-8yrs (Juniors Brazilian JiuJitsu)

Youth Martial Arts

They’re now kids in body, but they don’t feel like “little kids”. Now’s the time to start to explore more of the Martial Arts, including the Korean Sword (Kumdo) classes and grappling in Brazilian JiuJitsu.



  • Hapkido Tigers 5-13yrs
  • Taekwondo 5-13yrs
  • Epic Youth BJJ (Epic Brazilian JiuJitsu)
  • Kumdo Kids (Korean Sword)

Holiday Programs

Our Holiday Martial Arts Day Camps is aimed at kids 5-14yrs looking to learn some martial arts skills, keep active, socialise and of course have a little fun while they’re at it.

We’ll have some of our Junior Instructors and Junior Leaders present throughout the week, and they’ll be learning and developing their teaching skills as well as having a great time with the kids.

Birthday Parties

Looking for a Birthday Party for your kids aged between 5-9yrs that will be active (to burn off the sugar), teach them some skills and of course be a bucket-load of fun? Why not try a Canberra Martial Arts Themed Birthday Party.


Over 2 hours we’ll take your Birthday kiddo and their friends through some basic martial arts concepts, we’ll get them to play some fun fitness-based games and we’ll also let them see how powerful they can be through breaking some boards.

Junior Leardership Program

Kids at CMA&F can even learn the skills needed to get their first job! Many of our teenage students have grown with the program to now be either in training to be come an instructor, or currently assisting with classes in a paid role.
