Following the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, we believe in investing in children and giving them the opportunity to grow and develop physically and mentally through martial arts. We particularly focus on kids’ Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the emotional maturity it helps children achieve through its practice.
We hold two classes a day for kids, all with coaches who have a great deal of experience training children, and in these sessions discipline and fun go hand-in-hand. For complete information on kids class timings, please see our official schedule.
Why Bring your Kids to TND?
If you want to instil your child with unshakable confidence whilst building good character and positive values, TND is the place to come. We are also the first academy to have a child World Champion in Dubai, and encourage competition for those that want it.
Training at our Academy will bring:
Self-Discipline: a big problem in the modern era, and something we address with focussed and fun training classes that build patience, tolerance and restraint.
Responsibility: Young people need to learn that engaging in something which is difficult to do and takes time is ultimately very important for their character.
Respect: Children learn to respect their professors, their team-mates and also themselves.
Finding peaceful solutions to problems: Kids that train have less inclination to become aggravated or enraged to as they do not feel the need to ‘prove’ themselves. This makes them calmer and more rational in their decision making.
Self-Esteem and confidence: As the training hours build and progress increases, nothing makes our instructors happier than seeing how children change and start being more outgoing as their confidence grows.
Setting goals (and acting on them): Learning that when you truly want something in life you have to work hard to get it.
Family. Martial arts allow students to become comfortable with being in close physical contact in a society where we are becoming increasingly more isolated by technology. In combat sports we need our training partners and spend a significant part of our lives with them, which ultimately instills a sense of belonging. This positive influence is crucial to any youngster and their understanding of society. It builds camaraderie and shows young people that they are appreciated and important to one another and their team.
We currently offer four different martial arts disciplines for kids:
