Martial arts are good for kids. This isn’t about exposing them to violence, in what often seems like an increasingly violent world. No, what martial arts training can do is offer children a way to develop self-discipline and self-confidence, while providing them with an excellent source of exercise.
But how should you get children started with martial arts, especially at a time when Covid-19 restrictions are affecting social interaction and leisure activities?
At Ellis Academy of Self Defence, we offer virtual martial arts training for kids, along with our other martial arts programmes.

It’s fair to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the world upside down, affecting lots of industries in different ways. Sports and exercise clubs, such as our martial arts academy have been hit hard by lockdowns and people worried about attending classes.
But...it isn’t all bad news! We’ve never seen innovation as we have recently regarding martial art schools finding new ways for students to learn from the comfort of home!
Yes, it isn’t the same as being all together, learning and having fun in the same room but we must find ways to work around the current situation and continue to support our students.

Posted: September 25, 2020
Is your child prepared or equipped to deal with bullies? This blog explores some of the best self-defence strategies for kids when it comes to playground bullying.

Ditch the Label – a charity centred around bullying, found in their annual survey a fifth of young people reporting they had been bullied in the previous year. They also found that three out of four bullied kids said it affected their mental health and nearly half became depressed as a result.
Statistics like that are frightening to parents and guardians – nobody wants their child to be bullied. What is the solution and what can you do to prepare your child to deal with the playground nasties?
