GFC Fitness Programs
Children’s Programs: (4-6yrs)
What your child will expect at GFC:
Our Fun-filled classes are 60 minutes long. The key is the emphasis on advancement and growth based on each child’s individual pace. Classes become more challenging as each child progresses and show the readiness to accept more challenges. Children will begin to grasp the concept of self-discipline as they achieve goals. When he/she tackles more difficult goals, the self-confidence grows and serves as a strong foundation in all aspects of life, including academics, sports, arts and socially as well.
Results you can expect:

Kids (7yrs & up)
Self Discipline + Self-Defense = Self-Confidence
At GFC we help our children develop self-discipline. Understanding self-discipline through class discussions our instructors teach our children the meaning and benefit of having self-discipline. Practicing self-discipline during classes, our instructors help children to face and overcome challenges, soon they start to discipline themselves and begin to achieve on their own. Once our children successfully develop self-discipline in our school they begin to apply it on the outside in day-to-day life.
While teaching self-discipline, we also teach our children the art of self-defense. Never undervalue this important life skill. Children today face more bullies and negative peer pressure to take drugs and alcohol then at any time in our history.
This is why at Glendale Fighting Club, we teach a realistic self-defense system that combines karate, kickboxing and submission grappling, so children learn to defend themselves in virtually any situation, whether they are standing up or on the ground. They also learn conflict resolution and when they should and shouldn’t use their skills.
Studies have shown that…
• Children who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive.
• Children who know how to defend themselves usually don’t have to, because they carry themselves in a more confident manner, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies
When you combine Self-Discipline + Self-Defense, you get… Self-Confidence
Being Self-confident means your child believing in himself / herself.
This is easy to do when your child has…
• The self-discipline to achieve goals
• The self-defense skills to back him/her up so he/she doesn’t have to feel intimidated to stand up for what he/she believes.
Healthy body = Healthy Mind
Television, Soft drinks, Video Games, and Fast Food These are just a few of the challenges children face today. Combine these with a decrease in school gym classes; it’s easy to see why weight problems and obesity among children have more than doubled in our country in the last twenty years.
At Glendale Fighting Club we help children develop a healthy mind and body, so they have the energy and fitness to face life’s challenges, and succeed.
