ANY OF THESE CHALLENGES?
They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.
They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.
They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.
PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS A REAL CHALLENGE.
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.
Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.
The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
RESULTS AND GROWTH WITH EVERY CLASS!
Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.
STUDYING MARTIAL ARTS BUILDS PHYSICAL COORDINATION AND CONTROL
Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.
They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.
YOUNG MARTIAL ARTS STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO FOCUS
Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.
The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.
MARTIAL ARTS HELPS KIDS LEARN TO DEAL WITH FRUSTRATION
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.
The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
KIDS WHO STUDY MARTIAL ARTS LEARN GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP
Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.
Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.
Jiu jitsu and the black label team have had such a positive influence on my daughter! Her confidence has grown tremendously, she’s learned valuable life lessons and she enjoys every second of it!
Black Label Martial Arts is the best for so many reasons! Our oldest daughter started Jiujitsu earlier this year here and it instantly turned into a passion. She has made so many friends, we have as well, and now everyone feels like family. In just 6 months our 5 year old daughter has learned SO much. She has competed in a tournament, brought home two medals, ranked up in belts, has learned a ton and continues to do so every time she walks into Black Label. She is going so far with this already because of this gym! The coaches are phenomenal and go the extra effort to teach thoroughly. They treat everyone the same, no matter their belt, age, skill level, etc., everyone is treated like family and they put effort into every single person! We are beyond thankful to have found this gym and can’t wait for our youngest daughter to be old enough to roll on the mat! Thanks for everything Black Label, we love being apart of the family and are so excited for what the future holds! Sign your kids or yourself up! You won’t regret it!!
My first experience was a very good one.. everyone was very nice and helpful to me. I have zero experience in this art form. A warm but disciplined environment and very professional. I am excited about continuing to train here.. I will be back bet on that!
We are truly blessed to have found Black Label two years ago. Our daughter lacked confidence and it’s amazing how much she has grown since joining. The coaches are dedicated to each child’s journey and they go out of their way to ensure that every child knows they are supported. Professor Malachy has developed an outstanding youth BJJ program and I would recommend this martial arts school to anyone.

Glad I found the outlet I did with America’s Top Team Charleston, South Carolina after I retired from the military.
Also very thankful and happy with the two primary instructors who work with me when I’m not grasping things quickly due to multiple challenges I have from exposures in combat.
A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with neuro cognitive disorder, memory loss and other things directly related to injuries and the 11 combat deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq that I’ve done. My lack of sleep and quick temper were also challenges for me.
I’m now 3 months into attending classes at ATT Charleston and I continue to thank the owner of this location and two coaches I work with for the services and instruction they all provide.
Not only am I learning a new skill and revisiting some old ones, keeping healthy, building comradity along with honing a martial art that I always wanted to do better in, both my wife and I can see quality of life improvements and an outlet for the challenges I’ve stated above – which is the most important thing.
I can’t thank Malachy, Charleston and Clay enough for their services and instruction. I highly recommend this martial art for other combat veterans and this location for any combat veteran residing in the local Charleston area.
Please feel free to contact me direct if you have any further questions, comments of concerns or wish to discuss any lessons learned I could pass to others to help their Jiu Jitsu journey.
