Martial Arts

Every child can benefit from training in the martial arts. The focus, self- discipline, and respect that students learn on the martial arts mats empower them to become better students and to become positive, productive members of our community.

It takes a village to raise a child. Collaboration with teachers, families and local community organizations is imperative to developing well- rounded, positive, and civically engaged martial artists equipped with the confidence and skills needed to succeed.


Our mission is to teach children effective martial arts and to provide a safe, supportive, and structured environment so our children thrive.

At BETA Academy, experienced and dedicated instructors teach children effective self-defense skills based upon the martial arts of Thai Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Children also learn non-violent conflict resolution skills and bully- prevention tactics along with positive character building values that will help them to achieve in other areas of their lives.

We offer kids’ classes five days a week (Mon-Fri) that are fun and high-energy, providing exercise and motivation for children to lead healthy lifestyles.

In addition to our kids martial art classes, we also offer a Children’s After-School Program and Summer Camp for parents seeking child care services.

Children’s Thai Boxing Classes

Children’s Thai Boxing, a.k.a. Muay Thai classes, are offered each weekday, from 5:30–6:15pm. Children learn “the art of the eight- limbed warrior,” using their hands, elbows, knees, and legs as effective tools for self- defense.

Children’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Children’s Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu classes are also offered each weekday, from 4:30–5:15pm. With good performance in Thai Boxing class, children are invited to join this Champions Program, enabling them to learn submission- wrestling techniques and to further sharpen their skills through controlled sparring sessions.

Positive Benefits of Our Kids’ Programs

Self-Defense Skills

In a fun and safe environment, we teach children how to protect themselves in the face of danger using effective Thai Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Our instructors help children develop into confident young adults who are able to discern right from wrong; know when to stand their ground, and; when to “yell, run and tell.” We practice how to avoid dangerous situations using our words and how to escape a wide range of attacks.

Character Development

BETA Instructors incorporate core martial arts values, including respect, focus, discipline, teamwork, and integrity, into each lesson. We’ve integrated an innovative merit badge system that represents these core values and others. By earning their badges students build self-esteem through overcoming challenges to achieve their goals.Teaching children important life skills is a team effort and we make sure to work closely with families. We’ve created take- home material for parents and guardians to help enforce what their children learn on the mat.

Healthy Living

Many children in the United States are overweight and at risk of health challenges that are preventable. Our kids program promotes a healthy lifestyle, providing an alternative to television and video games. We increase children’s endurance as well as strengthen muscles, all while they are having fun and learning valuable life skills that they will carry with them as adults.


At BETA Academy, we understand that kids need to have fun when learning the martial arts. This is why our core curriculum includes a variety of high- energy practice drills and skill-building games.
