In this class we focus on developing the basic physical, neurological, and motor development of small children. We use basic training which include simple punching and kicking drills and Ninjutsu stances (Kamae). We also have simple obstacle courses to help students gain good hand and eye coordination, balance, and more precise motor function in the muscles of the arms and legs. We also teach basic self-defense techniques that are taught on their level.

We also teach important fundamental morals which includes learning how to be a good person, having good manners, how to obey and respect their parents, teachers and how to share with their peers. We teach a stranger be aware program to all our students.

Kobushi-Do, (children ages 6 to 12). Kobushi-Do is an exclusive children’s form of Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu, Ninjutsu, Aikido, Judo, and Karate. This art was created to make learning martial arts more effective, easier, and fun for children. Kobushi-Do is Southern School of Martial Arts's Jr. Manabi-Masho Ju-Jitsu.
Our children's class teaches specialized self-defense, general life lessons, how to be supportive, how to be kind honest and respectful, how to defend against and deal with a bully, all while gaining self-discipline, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-respect, and physical fitness. Kobushi-Do starts with self-defense. We teach specialized self-defense, which includes many of the same techniques from the adult system.

This martial art also has modern Ninjutsu, Judo, Aikido and Karate blended into the art for a very dynamic and effective blend. We also blend several select techniques from Eskrima, Kali, JKD, Krav Maga and Russian Martial Arts. This is a well-suited mixed martial art for adults wanting to learn effective self-defense and a real-world martial art that is much more than just punching and kicking. There are many weapon defenses and real-life scenario training. Sensei Murdock has trained Military personnel, law officers, NC State Highway Patrol, County Sherriff, and several local Police Departments. This is an effective and specialized self-defense that is great for anyone to learn.
