What is Smash Gyms Kids Martial Arts Program?
This Kids Martial Arts Program will make a positive difference in your child's LIFE!
Fun and Safe Classes!
The Smash Gyms Kids Martial Arts Program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self-esteem, discipline, while teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime! In our program your child will be able to progress at their very own pace. We understand that everyone learns differently. Whether your child can only train once a week or everyday we have the program that will fit your needs. All Smash kids instructor have full background checks and are eager to help students learn and develop.
Everyday, approximately 150,000 kids miss school due to fear or intimidation of bullies. Unfortunately, this is happening to children as young as kindergarten age. Not only can bullying lead to low confidence and self-esteem issues, but it also causes children to dislike school at one of the most impressionable times in their lives. Can you imagine how it would feel to go to work every single day and be afraid for your own safety and well being? Many kids have that same feeling while going to school every day. How can we expect children to focus well on their academics when they are under such stress? While parents may expect the teachers to intervene, the increasing statistics in bullying over the years is a clear sign that school administration is not or cannot resolve the problem.
You can absolutely do something to stop or prevent this from happening to your child. Give your child the ability to stand up for him or herself. Bullies prey on those who they perceive as weak. Training martial arts can give your child the real confidence to hold their head up high and not act like someone who is an easy target. In a vast majority of situations, that aura of confidence alone will cause bullies to stay away.
HOW CAN YOU BULLY PROOF YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER?
The Smash Gyms Kids Martial Arts Program was designed to give your child the confidence to deter bullies without ever having to resort to violence or threats. The Smash Kids curriculum was designed by world-class Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, and Martial Arts Instructors to teach kids to unlock their physical and mental potential that will translate to all aspects of their life. Our program's strong emphasis on integrity, discipline, physical fitness, and technique will allow your child to have the self-esteem and confidence to overcome all of life's obstacles.

Why Choose Smash Gyms Tutoring Program?
The Tutoring Center was developed at the request of parents wanting an alternative to the typical after care environment. The objective of the Tutoring Martial Arts Program is to create a fun and safe experience every afternoon after school that encourages children to build good relationships, learn martial arts, and demonstrate responsibility by completing their homework assignments.
The children are continuously supervised with adult counselors who provide activity supervision, and Blackbelt Instructors who teach the martial arts classes. All on-site activities are conducted indoors and children are divided into smaller groups at the appropriate times. The daily routine is punctual and organized. Parents can concentrate on their job with the peace of mind that their children are having fun after school, making good use of their time, and staying healthy from the exercise.
Ultimately, the children will become Blackbelt Leaders and role models. The martial arts curriculum is comprehensive. If your child is attending an after care program now, then usually enrolling in our Tutoring Center is more affordable. Instead of paying tuition for after care, at another location, and then paying tuition again for evening martial arts classes, you can have your after school needs and martial arts lessons combined together. Then, evenings can be saved for quality family time and eliminate the stress of having to manage dinner, homework, evening activities, and bed time schedules..

SMASH GYMS FULL SCHEDULE
"This review is for the Kids Martial Arts and Smash and Bash Bootcamp held at Smash Gyms. I was referred to Smash Gyms by a family member who trains in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class at Smash Gyms. The atmosphere in the gym is very welcoming to all. My son, who is 9 years old, took a liking to the Kids Martial Arts class on the very first day. His confidence, discipline, and knowledge of self defense has rapidly developed since enrolling in this school. He insists that he wants to continue to train daily. The instructors leading the Kids Martial Arts program do an excellent job working with the children. Parents can work out during the kids' class as well. I have taken the Smash and Bash Bootcamp while my son is training. This also is an awesome, challenging, and very convenient class for any parent wanting a great workout while their child is training. The instruction, workouts and gym have been a positive experience. I would recommend that anyone who is interested begin by enrolling in the free week trials offered at Smash Gyms." - Alex R
"Amazing, organized, and fun kids classes. Focuses on kids fitness and technique. Great kettlebell class. The instructor is very experieced and detailed. They also have kickboxing, Krav Maga, jujitsu, Zumba, and bootcamp classes. I can't wait till I can find time to do them all." -M. Kelly
"Generally, I hate walking into gyms for the first time and having to "consult" with pushy sales people trying to get you to buy a membership at their gym before you try it out (ie. Fitness 19, Club One, 24 Hour Fitness). So it was nice to walk into Smash Gyms and not have them try to sell you on multiple types of plans. I was able to try different types of classes first using the Amazon Locals deal. After taking the kickboxing class, I was pretty much sold! The boot camp classes are also pretty awesome. I've been a member now for about a month and managed to lose 15 pounds!! Perks = no more dieting and watching my calories!
As for how this compares with other kickboxing gyms, I've only tried one other kickboxing gym (Unlimited MMA in Milpitas). It was okay but I like the atmosphere here better--not as intimidating and the people are nicer. Also, this gym is closer to the freeways, makes it easier to hop on back to the 237 or 101 after working out.
If you have any kids, there's a play room area and they also have martial arts classes for kids." - Mary N.
"Smash Gyms offers an excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program with excellent and knowledgeable instructors. Furthermore, the atmosphere is very welcoming, and we learn not only from the instructors but also from each other, as everyone here is willing to help each other out. Definitely the best place to go! - Thaibinh
Came here for a week trial of unlimited classes! Got to try out kickboxing which was very intense since I had only tried out cardio kickboxing classes before. The instructors were all super helpful anywhere from helping newcomers with the equipment to technique tips. " - Stacey L
"This place rocks! The atmosphere is very friendly and casual, not intimidating at all. People (staff and clients) are friendly and helpful. Walk in the door and Rudy will help you out on what you need to get you started.I tried out the circuit training at noon, kickboxing, and zumba. Circuit training is great workout, small class and personal attention. Zumba is only as good as the instructor, and Raquel is energetic and fun. Kickboxing is pads and mitts, not the kick in the air stuff, good workout, and the instructors walk around to make sure people's forms are correct. Though your workout quality do depend on a decent partner.The only complain I have of this place is no shower, other than that, it's perfect. ." - Viola C.
