Our Martial Arts Academy teaches children discipline!

We have great instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits. We enforce rules of good behaviour in class, and we expect the same good behaviour from our Kung Fu kids at home and in school. Progress at Ontario Self Defence Centre & Wu Xin Martial Arts Whitby requires it! All of our Juniors (7-8) and NextGen (9-12) have monthly job lists to ensure they  are being great martial artists inside the academy and at home as well.


Our Centre will help your child focus!

Many parents register their kids because of the positive outlet it gives the them for their seemingly unlimited energy. Many kids find it difficult to focus, martial arts enhances this aspect in children, which benefits children at home and in school. Many of our parents tell us their children have improved their grades and had very positive feedback from teachers after training at our centre. Martial arts is also great for those temperamental kids, despite what many may think, martial arts leads to less aggressive behaviour in children!

Our program teaches practical self-defence. From verbal conflict resolution to the most advanced martial arts techniques, our kids are taught that their personal safety comes first. Our kids are shown the difference between being at school, walking home alone, stranger danger, physical and verbal self-defence options, the truth about bullying and when it is appropriate and not appropriate to use their self-defence skills. Self-defence taught at the Ontario Self Defence Centre & Wu Xin Martial Arts Whitby is not a label, we teach the real thing – no bouncing around, sparring for points or building unrealistic habits. We take the safety of you and your children seriously, we do not teach you techniques that will not help you in the real world. Wu Xin is not a sports martial art, it is a survival art with all the character building benefits that comes from professional instructors and strong role models.


But most importantly:

We have found that in our martial arts centre, children have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in foolish risk taking behaviour, and a higher level of self-confidence. Many parents use martial arts to supplement their children’s academic education as well as for their personal safety.

Last, with classes Monday to Friday, and our school operates year round, Ontario Self Defence Centre & Wu Xin Martial Arts Whitby can accomodate even the busiest of students.
