UTAH KIDS KARATE
Discipline, Respect, Technical Excellence, Self Confidence, and Leadership. These are the aims of or Kids Karate program.
Martial Arts are one of the absolute most beneficial activities for children of all ages. Goal setting (belt levels), cooperation (partner drills), and the ability for each child to progress at his or her own pace are just a few of the advantages of enrolling your child in our Martial Arts Curriculum.
How many other sports or activities, not only get your kid off of the couch but involve your child with a mentor figure who will give them guidance and instruction in a consistent fashion over an extended period of time?
Our ultimate goal is for every student to be a black belt, every teacher to be a friend, and every parent to be proud.
When it comes to our Kids Karate Lessons, they are not Karate per se, but rather a structured, and safe approach to teaching MMA for kids. Think of it as Kids BJJ meets Thai Boxing for kids meets life lessons and philosophy that will build character and develop successful habits.
Mushin Self Defense is one of Utah’s first and finest schools for learning Mixed Martial Arts. We have served the Davis County area for over 17 years as the most professional and successful academy in the area.

On a technical level, your child will learn the footwork, head movement, covers,
From there they will learn how to defend as well as utilize takedowns from Greco, Catch as Catch Can, Freestyle Wrestling and Judo. Once on the ground, your child will learn how to defend against strikes, escape and move with Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Freestyle Wrestling and Catch Wrestling.
They will be able to defend themselves at any range. But more importantly, they will learn valuable life lessons and behavior traits that will extend far beyond our Martial Arts School. At Mushin Self Defense, the Martial Arts are just a way to teach these, more important aspects.
What does it mean to have “Black Belt Spirit”? When some students first arrive at our academy they believe this means being tough. And it does. But not in the way they think it does. Many think that being tough means being able to defeat all the other kids in the room. Nothing could be further from the truth. “Black Belt Spirit” means doing what you can
Something like video games. Because with video games we can save our progress and start over. As many times as it takes. And we don’t have to
But the real world doesn’t work that way. There is no saved progress. You only get one shot at that job interview, or that college you’re
But we won’t. Because a Black Belt IS tough. Because when we failed at the grappling tournament, or the belt test, or at breaking that difficult board, Sensei told us we weren’t good enough… yet. Then he asked how we were going to get better and helped you get there. And at the next
And you got used to the pain of failure and defeat. And it didn’t bother you anymore. Because you are tough. Because you are tough, it didn’t bother you anymore,
These are the discussions we have in our
