American Free Style for Children Ages 8 – 12

National Karate MMA teaches a diverse style known as American Free Style. American Freestyle consists of a plethora of different martial arts styles, such as Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Japanese Karate, and Israeli Combat. By not limiting ourselves to one particular style, we are able to teach reality based martial arts and train for almost any situation.

Tae Kwon Do, which originated in Korea, is a style of martial arts best known for its dynamic kicking skills.

Boxing, which originated in ancient Greece as an Olympic Sport, is best known for its powerful punching techniques.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a style of martial arts that branched off of the Japanese form of Jiu Jitsu. It is designed to give the smaller guy a fighting chance against a larger opponent. This art levels the playing field by teaching submissions, such as arm bars, chokes, leg locks, and key locks, to submit an attacker.

Muay Thai is a combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking and kicking along with various clinching techniques.

Japanese Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes, and open-handed techniques such as knife-hands and palm heels.

Israeli Combat, developed in Israel, is a noncompetitive martial art and eclectic self-defense system, which involves striking techniques, wrestling, and grappling. Known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient counter-attacks, Israeli Combat practices the philosophy of emphasizing threat neutralization with simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, to fight aggression with aggression.

National Karate MMA classes are taught by professional Black Belt instructors. Coach Brian Plempel, 6th degree black belt, and Coach Andrew Maness, 5th degree black belt, are passionate and detailed oriented when it comes to teaching marital arts. Together, Coach Drew and Coach Brian have over 50+ years’ experience teaching martial arts. Our #1 goal is to instill the Black Belt Attitude in each of our students. With THE proper Black Belt Attitude, words like “Can’t” and “Too Difficult” seem to disappear. This attitude carries into EVERY aspect of our students’ lives helping them mature into fine upstanding citizens who exude character traits like honor, integrity, courtesy, respect, loyalty, self-control, perseverance, and an indomitable spirit.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner in Karate or have experience, we have the right classes for you or your child to succeed.
