Little PUMAs

Little Puma’s is a revolutionary method of using martial arts as a training platform to encourage and motivate 4-7 year olds.  It aids childhood development and teaches and promotes life skills.  There are five key areas we concentrate on:

  • Self esteem
  • Discipline
  • Channelling aggression
  • Confidence
  • Self-defence

Is there any proof of my child’s progress?

Yes, there are 8 Little PUMA gradings. These gradings are based on set themes. The themes revolve around encouraging the children’s self-awareness, self-protection, self-development and confidence as well as working together as a team, giving encouragement and respect for each other.

The grading themes are not set in any particular order but include the following:

  • Balance
  • Focus/concentration
  • Stranger danger/emergency skills
  • Co-ordination
  • Teamwork/leadership
  • Fitness
  • Discipline
  • Memory

When are the Gradings?

The gradings take place roughly every 3 months. With success at each grade comes a new coloured belt.  The little Puma will progress through the belts until they reach the black belt (little Puma equivilant).  Then the child will be ready to progress on to Taekwon-do.


What do I get when I enrole my child?
