Martial arts is a great activity for kids. There are plenty of martial arts camps and classes in Canada. For instance, in Ontario alone, there are several camps in Toronto, Ottawa, Brampton, Mississauga, and elsewhere.

Different kinds of martial arts camps

What is a martial art? A martial art is a system of training for combat and self-defense that’s widely practiced as a sport. There are camps and classes for each kind of martial art, including karate, taekwondo, kung fu, and judo.

These camps can take place in the summer or winter. There are also after school, evening, and weekend martial arts classes. And some camps offer March breakwinter break, passover, and PA day programs.

Keep in mind, there are martial arts classes for kids of different levels and ages. For instance, there are classes at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level. And classes are offered for toddlers, 3 to 5 year-olds, 6 to 12 year-olds, teenagers, and adults.

What martial arts camps have to offer

Martial arts camps provide specialized training. They teach self-defense and basic fighting techniques, such as kicking, punching, and blocking. They also teach a number of important character traits, including discipline, patience, respect, and honour.

In a martial arts class, your child can earn a belt that reflects their level of proficiency. These belts usually range from white (beginner level) to black (expert level).

Martial arts camps and classes have a number of important benefits. They teach your child self-defense, which can allow them to avoid bullying and physical confrontations. These classes can also improve your child’s fitness level, strength, and conditioning, and teach them discipline, patience, and other important virtues. And by earning a belt, even a white belt (the beginner level) your child can feel a real sense of accomplishment.

All in all, martial arts camps and classes can boost confidence, self-esteem, and physical and mental health. And of course, they can be great fun!

Finding a martial arts camp

Below, we list different martial arts camps and classes for kids. Some of these camps specialize in one martial art, such as karate or taekwondo. Others offer classes in more than one martial art. And some offer one or more martial arts classes alongside other programs, such as gymnastics, swimming, soccer, or tennis.

Click on a martial arts camp to learn more about it. Don’t wait too long, though, as spots fill up fast.
