Why is martial arts important for kids?



This world is often thrown around but rarely understood by young children. We educate on why it is important, how it is earned, shown and maintained – on and off the mat.


Not only will your child be challenged in martial arts, but placed in situations to foster leadership & social skills, building lifetime friendships and fostering self-confidence.

Goal Setting

Properly setting goals, planning to achieve them, and following through is a vital skill for children as they grow into independent adults & as children on the mat, at home & at school.

Activity & Achievement

Physical activity is crucial to staying healthy at all ages. We develop strength balance, flexibility, coordination and fitness, instilling positive habits for a healthy & successful lifestyle.

Social Awareness

We aim to affirm non-violent conflict resolution & anti-bullying skills in addition to our effective martial arts training to safely handle against bullying, verbal and physical threats.

“I really enjoy training at Silver 7 Martial Arts, especially Brazilian jiu jitsu. It makes me feel like a kid again and my goal for the new year is to be a better fighter. The instructors are very friendly and kind and they show a lot of patience answering my questions. They check on me and motivate me if I am sick and miss a class. Also, they don't play any games with pricing. Everything is straight forward and honest.”

“Sensei Wilson has more than exceeded our expectations - his energy and enthusiasm is contagious and our boys LOVE going to their little ninja class with him. His teaching style is absolutely perfect - I was most impressed with how he dealt with my little guys not following rules very well yesterday (they started to army crawl away when they were supposed to wait - he caught up to them, grabbed one leg of each child and dragged them back to the start, smiling the entire time. They were all laughing when he said go but didn't let go of their legs giving the other children a head start. Brilliant.) Oh, and his patience with them is very impressive!!! The entire team at the Kanata location is so genuine, welcoming, friendly and supportive. We are confident we chose the right dojo for our family!”
