Springfield Krav Maga kids program is separate from the adults and is specifically for children 8-14 years of age. The adult syllabus was modified to ensure that what was taught was relevant for our kids Krav Maga and martial Arts program, without including some of the more extreme methods taught within the adult class. Other considerations include when and why to use these skills as well as greater emphasis on fitness, co-ordination and spatial awareness skills. There is a path for the qualifications that they earn to carry across into the adult class, which they can join at 14 years of age.
