My husband and I have been wanting to do Krav Maga for years now and finally we just did it, Howard is an incredible instructor and this is honestly the only thing I look forward to lately. They know what they are doing, they communicate well and make sure you are comfortable and not pushing your limits. It's one hell of a work out I can tell you that!

Outstanding place to train! The instructors are very courteous and knowledgeable, and provide environment that is family oriented and welcomes all ages and experience levels. I enjoy the Krav Maga to learn some practical self defense skills.

I just recently completed a 3-day ICCS-Israeli Contact Combat Instructor course at Millennium Martial Arts and I can confidently declare that the facility & school ran by Howard Munding is premier! Howard and I got to know each other on a professional training and personal level during my time there and I'm now honored to have him as a friend. Howard's martial arts experience and pedigree is impeccable and if you're in the Peoria, AZ area and looking for a place to begin or enhance your training...go check out Millennium Martial Arts and meet this great man!

What is the best age to start a child in martial arts?

With all the benefits of Martial Arts, parents often wonder…What’s the best age to enroll their children into classes?

Believe it or not, young exposure is never a bad idea. Four- and five-year old’s benefit greatly from martial arts classes. They are not doing any too difficult or dangerous just yet. At this age they are just learning the basics, along with disciple, respect and confidence. They are also learning skills like balance, hand-eye coordination and attention span.

If your child is not suited for team sports, it’s still a great way for them to get exercise and meet new friends.

Before all that, the best way to know if martial arts is right for your child is quite simple…ask them if they are interested. If your child doesn’t quite know enough to answer that question, then take them to a local school and observe a class. Most schools offer a free trial class to see if you child enjoys it. Kids love doing what their peers are doing so going with a buddy is often a fun way to get started. Most schools will also evaluate your child privately so they can tell you if your child is ready and which class would be the best fit for them.

All in all, kids can begin learning the very basics early on, but this can also depend on a child’s rate of development.
