Tiny Tigers (4-5)
Tiny Tigers is a fun and engaging class focused on developing the basic motor and listening skills of the preschool-aged child. The ECMA program caters to all personality types: shy children will become more assertive and comfortable in public situations; energetic children will become better at controlling “those urges” and responding to instruction and all types will benefit from the focus and discipline that our structured curriculum provides. We focus on specific Social and Emotional development drills while using our time-tested martial arts exercises and games to improve small and large motor skills. We also work on other basic developmental efforts such as color and shape recognition, and commands that teach children to identify and associate different techniques by name and sight. This program runs approximately 30 minutes in length, twice a week depending on the program you choose. Tiny Tigers prepares children for ECMA’s Little Dragons Program.

Little Dragons (5-7)

This program is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving children’s basic listening, recognition, and motor skills. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. They will become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious towards the future.The Little Dragon program works to further improve a child’s listening, recognition, and motor skills. This fun and structured program helps children build control, balance, memory and their general fitness and coordination. Our time-tested ECMA Little Dragons’ curriculum introduces more substantial martial art skills along with the concepts of focus, teamwork and discipline. The purpose of this program is to help the student develop as well as get them ready for the Junior Program.We believe the time between the ages of 5 and 7 are some of the most important stages of a child’s development. However we recognize that 5 to 7 year olds have different developmental needs than our Tiny Tigers or the older kids in our Junior Program. The Little Dragons curriculum bridges that gap and will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way. This program will prepare your child for our Junior Martial Arts Program. In addition to learning Focus, Teamwork, Control, Balance, Memory, Discipline, Fitness and Coordination, children will learn the basic Martial Arts skills that will enhance their future Martial Arts training. This training will also improve their abilities in sports and other activities, much more so than children that do not participate in this type of program. Martial Arts will allow your child the added benefit of confidence, self-esteem and give them an outlet to channel their energy. Basic mental and physical self-defense is also addressed so you can have the confidence that your child will know what to do if approached by a stranger as well as if he/she is bullied on the playground.

Junior Program (8-12)

This program is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving not only basic motor skills, listening, and life skills, but challenges the student by adding more of the traditional martial arts training and increasing the level of intensity.

Upon completion of this series, the student will earn a Junior Black Belt. It is our sincere belief that our black belts are more physically and mentally skilled than most normal black belts in similar junior training programs. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook.

They will become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious towards the future. In addition to learning Focus, Teamwork, Control, Balance, Memory, Discipline, Fitness and Coordination, children will learn the basic Martial Arts skills that will enhance their future Martial Arts training. This training will also improve their ability to do sports and other activities, much more so than children that do not participate in this type of program.

Gracie BullyProof

Every month in the United States, three million children miss school due to fear of bullies. In the Gracie Bullyproof program, our goal is to instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence. Due to the non-violent nature of the techniques, CNN, ABC, NBC, and Oprah have featured the Gracie Bullyproof program as one of the few effective counter-measures to bullying for children between the ages of 5 and 13. We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. Importantly, we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Numerous school districts have embraced the defensive nature of the Gracie Bullyproof techniques as a reasonable, nonviolent response to bullying and some even host Gracie Bullyproof classes on campus! The bottom line is: we will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.

We will teach them to fight fire with water.

Adults
We all face many challenges every day. When we were growing up, we thought life would get so much easier when we became and adult. We came to find out that all that freedom we thought we were getting came with its own set of responsibilities as well. The primary challenge we all face now is this: how do I juggle everything in my life (job, kids, etc.) and still take care of myself? For a growing number of people, the Martial Arts provide the answer. Whether you are interested in physical fitness, self-defense, or even just an athletic social outlet, East Coast Martial Arts is a safe and positive environment, providing a fun activity-driven atmosphere where those with common interests can join together in physically rewarding and mentally challenging activities. For many of our students, the time that they spend in class is an oasis in the middle of their lives where they can focus on themselves without feeling selfish or guilty.

Family
For those of you who want to train together as a family, we offer the East Coast Martial Arts Family Programs. At ECMA we have classes designed specifically for kids, teens, and adults. In addition, our family class allows children that are 8 years and older to train with their parents. If your children are younger than 8 years old, we can determine in a private lesson if they qualify. If they are too young to be in the same class, we can still offer an age-appropriate class at the same time. Because ECMA has two training floors, we have the flexibility to have a Family class at one time and a Little Dragons Class at the same time but in a different room. All of our locations cater to giving the best schedules possible. We also offer family discounts where applicable. THE FAMILY THAT KICKS TOGETHER, STICKS TOGETHER!

Gracie Combatives
Grand Master Helio Gracie started developing Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after he realized that he was too frail to utilize the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Over the past 80 years, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most reliable system for a smaller person to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. The techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu are based on precise timing and effective use of leverage so that virtually anyone can do them, man or woman, regardless of their age or athletic ability.
Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of the fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the others combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques.
