ENGAGE & EMPOWER
Rocket City Martial Arts offers classes to children as young as 5 years old. Kids will learn non-violent conflict resolution while increasing physical fitness, making friends and most importantly having fun.
We believe martial arts training empowers girls and boys, giving them a natural confidence that can ward off bullies and predators.
We understand that all kids learn differently. When teaching a child, we recognize there's a time to push them through a challenge and a time to celebrate their best effort...and our intuitive instructors know the difference.

Is Martial Arts the right activity for your child?
Check to see if your child has any of these challenges:
- They have trouble paying attention at school or other group settings...maybe they've have been even diagnosed or labeled as "ADD" or "ADHD".
- They are more introverted and shy and appear to lack the confidence needed to live up to their full potential.
- They have problems showing respect for you, their teachers, or their peers – sometimes even acting out and causing problems for everyone around them.
- They don’t seem to listen or follow directions well, often being told over and over to do something before they actually do it.
- They haven't found a sport or activity yet that provides them with healthy role models.
- They have suffered from a bullying situation or even worse, have acted out as a bully.

To All Parents,
I’m Sensei Matt Gilliard, owner and head instructor here at Rocket City Martial Arts .
As a 4th degree black belt with 25 years of training and extensive experience teaching, there is nothing better than seeing our students grow firsthand. Even more important than the martial arts skills they learn, are the leadership skills they will develop and carry with them for life.
Martial arts are so much more than just punching, kicking, and getting the next colorful belt. It’s about building character, self-control, discipline, respect, and confidence.
With every class they take, your children grow in mind, body and character. That’s because our instructors provide instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on core skills, they develop both discipline and control. They can instantly see and feel their progress, and begin building confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
Through directed practice in our group classes, your children get the mental and physical stimulation they need to grow and thrive as they mature. And they make lifelong friendships in the process!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to children in our community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE their training with us.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
We hope to see your child on the mat soon!
