RAISING WARRIORS SINCE THE '90s
& CONFIDENCE BUILDING
ZenKIDS Dojo provides both private and group martial arts classes for kids between the ages of 5 -14 years. Kids will develop martial art skills in Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai as well as learn bully prevention and self defense techniques in a fun, safe and interactive environment!
Self Defense Techniques
ZenKIDS will learn the art of Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and some karate fundamentals. They will learn self defense and de-escalation techniques to keep themselves safe. We emphasize Jiu Jitsu for life not for sport like most places do. We follow the late Master Helio Gracie's footsteps and beliefs. We are one of the only few places where your kids will be taught by one of Royce Gracies high level black belts.
Zenki Dojo Is a
No Bullying Zone
We spread the message by reviewing anti-bullying tactics and role playing situations in order for our students to adapt what they're taught in real life situations. Kids review various ways to prevent bullying and deal with bullies if they should find themselves confronted by a bully.

Why a kids-only dojo? Zenki has been in this location since the 90’s with the tradition of raising kids with the “bushido mindset” -- Respect, Benevolence, Sincerity, Courage, Honesty, Loyalty, and Self-Control.
Kids need to have their own creative environment to learn and play. Studies have shown that children thrive when they are having fun learning. We created ZenKIDS to be a very fun and safe environment.
But of course, it’s not just fun and games -- our instructors and coaches are all high level martial artists. Zenki only has certified coaches, black belts, and world class champions, so we can bring the same successful mindset to your children.
ZenKIDS martial arts program is taught by one of Royce Gracie’s black belts.
We teach the late master Helio Gracie’s Brazilian Jiu jitsu, designed for practical self-defense as well as overall physical fitness. We teach students strategies on dealing with confrontation, empowerment skills, and how to fight effectively--only if necessary--using Jiu jitsu techniques to control the situation, all encouraged through a positive, supportive teaching environment.
Our head of kids Muay Thai (kick-boxing) is also a world-renowned coach and champion. Your kids will be taught to have the same championship mindset along with having fun exercising.
ZenKIDS dojo has been designed for kids to have fun and enjoy their time here. We also have a jungle gym with a climbing wall to encourage kids to be active and to appreciate movement.
Training & Play
Our main discipline here at ZenKIDS is Royce Gracie Jiu jitsu and a basic combination of karate that teaches the kids proper etiquette, self discipline and self defense.
Part of our discipline also includes Muay Thai/boxing which teaches the kids how to use their eight limbs, learn a fighters mindset and staying active at all times.
This modality introduces kids to a fitness program early in their life. Instilling wellness at a young age will give them the tools to flourish into healthy adults.
CirKids involve several stations designed for strength, coordination and fun!
