Where "Protectors" Are Made!

What are Little Ninjas?

Our Little Ninja program is a Self-Defense class for kids 5-9 years old. Here they will learn the most advanced ways of defending themselves against:

  • Mental Abuse

  • Physical Abuse

  • Bullies

  • Abductions

  • Gang Violence

  • and much more...





Here we strive to have all of the students represent themselves as great people in, and outside the Dojo. We present awards for great attendance, and merits for their efforts in school. Here our Little Ninjas learn not to compete for trophies, but rather learn practical methods, passed down from the Ninja and Samurai families, of defense and getting home happy, healthy, and safe!


What does it cost to start?

$55 per month plus a one time enrollment fee of $50


How long is class?

Classes are around 45 min long


What days?

5:30-6:15pm

Mondays, Wednesdays 

*Advanced Little Ninjas (Blue-Black Belts)*

Mondays - 6:30pm and Thursdays - 5:30pm


Why Taijutsu?

Taijutsu is the method of using in your entire body for self-defense. This means that children develop better balance, awareness, and focus for their entire lives. Other arts focus strictly on one aspect of the arts, like wrestling, boxing, or kicking. Here your child will learn to use all these methods, for their protection!  


How to Enroll?

Because of the high demand, and for space availability we have a *2 Step Enrollment Process.

Step 1. Fill out the form below

Step 2. An Instructor will contact you to answer any questions and schedule a free Little Ninja Mini Lesson, and a 1 on 1 Parent Interview


Because all martial arts schools are different, and have different core values, it is our goal to make sure we are the right fit for you and your child. It is important to us that our school will help your child reach their fullest potential in a safe, challenging, but entertaining way!
