Teaching martial arts to kids can be one of most rewarding parts of being an instructor.


But, if you get it wrong, it can become a nightmare.

First you need an engaging and well-structured syllabus to keep kids excited about their training.

Using a well designed syllabus minimises disruptive behaviour and keeps kids focused on their journey to black belt and beyond.

Boost your kids classes with an expertly developed syllabus designed to get the best from children aged 4-15 years


I’ve spent over 28 years studying martial arts of various forms, including Full Contact Kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA, and JKD.

Today, you can take advantage of a syllabus that synthesizes everything I've learned teaching children over the last 19 years.

Not only will it help you teach and run better kids classes, but it's designed to make gradings easier as well.

Skip the time-consuming planning, editing and second guessing. Use our proven syllabus to develop confident kickboxing kids.

Inside the course you get two complete syllabuses !


To get the best results from training children of different ages need different approaches.

That is why I've included two age-specific syllabuses that cover ages 4-8 and 8-15, so each group receives the specific training they need.

THE 4 - 8 YEARS OLD SYLLABUS


This syllabus builds the foundations for more advanced training as the children mature physically & mentally.

At this early stage It's important to develop basic physical skills and refine them over the years.

The training, drills, and exercises included are focused on teaching them balance, coordination, and general skills needed to succeed in martial arts.

  • Physical Skill

  • Developing balance

  • Hand-eye coordination

  • Better spatial awareness

  • Mental Skills

  • Cooperation with others

  • Developing more focus

  • Respect for other people & belongings

THE 8 - 15 YEARS OLD SYLLABUS


This syllabus builds on the foundations and prepares the students for the journey to black belt mastery.

Additionally, as the students skills develop the syllabus focuses more on sparring skill & self defence ability.

  • Physical Skills

  • Developing solid kickboxing skills

  • Building functional strength

  • Developing aerobic endurance


  • Mental Skills

  • Discipline to succeed

  • Resilience to not give in

  • Confidence to perform

Plus Life Skills For Kids


Both syllabuses also include a life skill component to help your students develop skills that will help them off the mat.

We all know the real benefit of martial arts in not the kicking & punching but the person you become on the journey to black belt and beyond.

These syllabuses are designed to equip your students with the best physical & mental tools on their life's journey
