We all want what’s best for our children, and we want them to be as fit, as healthy, and as happy as they can possibly be. When it comes to actually getting them to become physically active, persuading them to put down the iPad, or to switch off the TV, it can be a real struggle for some of us, which is one of the reasons that we decided to create Little Dragons Kickboxing!

Little Dragons Kickboxing is a specialist Kickboxing class which is aimed exclusively at children between the ages of 4 and 8. The class has been running since 2009 and is taught by Marie & Matt ward with kickboxing coach Luke Sargeant. Marie & Matt have many years of professional Kickboxing teaching experience, as well as both holding full CRB checks, martial arts specific insurance, child safeguarding certificates, and first aid qualifications, so you know that your own little dragons are in the safest possible hands!

We teach:

  • A number of easy to master techniques (which are essential when teaching children of this age)

  • Basic self defense strategies

  • Confidence building exercises

  • A number of structured rewards and our grading belt syllabus

  • A number of effective ‘learning through play’ activities, so your children have fun whilst they learn

  • Discipline and how to respect others

One of the things that kids and parents find most appealing about our class, is the fact that we offer your children what we call ‘achievement patches’ which can be sewn or ironed onto your child’s kickboxing belts once they’ve earned them. Some of these achievement patches will be for showing signs of outstanding confidence, showing respect, manners, and politeness, showing great ability, trying their hardest, and many, many more on top of that. We also feature a ‘student of the month’ award, to the student of that particular month, which we feel has really shown all of the qualities that we look for here at Little Dragons kickboxing for kids.


Ready to make a life change? We’re thrilled to help you along your path to a fit and healthy life. Our instructors take great pride in helping achieve your goals.
