Managing & Understanding Bullies
Developing Empathy and Compassion
"During this critical development stage, kids need the proper mental and physical tools to stay safe and make good choices. Our youth program is designed to encourage kids to explore and view the world in a creative, positive manner but still know how to handle confrontation. We want our kids to exude an air of cool confidence." - Professor Edward Monaghan

Youth Program (Ages 6-11)
All physical activities at Ekata are based in the principle of mindfulness. Mindfulness practice trains the brain and strengthens the neo-cortex, which is responsible for emotional regulation, attentiveness along with developing empathy and compassion for others.
The impulse/action gap
Ekata’s youth program trains kids’ brains to widen the gap between impulse and action. This is a crucial time to learn about controlling impulsive behavior and making good choices.
Ekata offers the best in physical training for kids, all under one roof! Please see below for our description of classes.
Monthly Private Training
Each student is given a free private session per month to build a foundation of agility, strength and flexibility. At Ekata we encourage parents and children to workout together, but we want our kids to learn how to train properly so they can excel in any sport!
Jeet Kune Do
The root of our martial arts at Ekata all stem from Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. Jeet Kune Do is know as the “original” mixed martial art. In Jeet Kune Do, students learn practical techniques for self defense while maintaining the humility and respect of traditional martial arts training. During the first year, all students develop a base of experience in our JKD classes.
In the second year our students begin to learn a unique form of French kickboxing called Savate from our world champion co-founder, Sifu JoAnn Wabisca. This trains them to gain proficiency in long and medium range striking techniques.
In the third year students learn Brazilian Jiujitsu. This art focuses on the development of grappling/ground fighting skills.
In Jeet Kune Do rhythm is an important part of our training. Many people don’t know that in addition to his mastery of martial arts, Bruce Lee was a dance champion! In boxing, rhythm and broken rhythm training is an integral part of the process! Hip Hop teaches rhythm, timing and free expression all taught with a positive, respectful attitude!
Ekata teaches supplemental courses in western foil for an additional fee. These seminar based classes are taught by international competitor Nouneh Assadorian. Techniques from fencing were implemented in Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. Footwork, timing and interceptions are hallmarks of Bruce Lee’s art.
Kid Nitro is a circuit training class designed for young bodies. Kids enrolled in our martial arts program must reach physical training standards to earn rank. These classes along with each child’s monthly personal training session teach how to accomplish their physical goals – correctly. We believe that by building a solid foundation of physical training each child can be a physical success.
Monthly Tuition: $169
Panda Program (Ages 3-5)
Ekata’s Panda program is designed to teach basic motor skills, develop spatial awareness, and provide the foundation necessary for children to avoid danger and become respectful citizens.
Our pre-school program introduces children to key concepts, which will help them prepare for the social and academic needs of the future.
Pandas are taught the foundation of mindfulness practice. This enables our little ones to begin exercising their brain in a way that helps them to widen the gap between impulse and action.
Children learn with their bodies. Our program teaches basic movement skills that provide a foundation for motor learning as children age. We want our kids to build a solid foundation that translates into a confident, healthy mind and body.
Through our proprietary character training lessons children learn how to interact effectively with others and develop an attitude of respect and kindness. We teach children to accept and process their feelings in a supportive, positive environment.
