At the YMCA of Odessa Texas, we focus on emphasizing discipline, mental attitude, goal setting and respect in every youth martial arts class. All martial arts classes are grouped by age and skill level. Martial arts classes begin and end with warm-ups, stretching, and meditation. Participants learn beginning skills for striking, blocking, and movement in addition to proper falling techniques and practical self-defense techniques.

Strength: Students can become stronger, flexibility, confidence and self-esteem while developing overall physical fitness. As students progress, they will learn to coordinate speed and power, and develop the concentration to focus all of your body's strength into a small, hard striking surface with the hand or the heel of the foot.

Self-Defense: Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow. Students of all ages can apply the lessons learned to maintaining their personal safety.
