Is your child prepared to defend him or herself in a fight?  Do your kids know the strategies necessary to avoid injury if they are bullied or attacked?  Our kids classes at Lexington Systema can help your child develop essential and practical self-defense skills to keep them safe, whether it’s on the street or on the playground.

Kids classes at Lexington Systema will start offering classes for children between the ages of 7-13 beginning the first week of June 2013.  Children younger than the age of 8 will be considered on an individual basis.  Sessions run 6 weeks in length and consist of 2 1-hour classes each week.

Our kids classes teach essentially the same material as our adult classes.  The primary difference is the speed and intensity of the instruction.  This is not a daycare class; it is designed to provide your children with self-defense skills they can actively utilize to protect themselves.  Your children will learn:

  • How to protect themselves against punches and kicks.
  • How to get out of grabs and holds.
  • How to fall safely, and defend themselves on the ground.
  • How to defend against multiple attackers.
  • How to use breathing and relaxation techniques to remain calm in a confrontation.

Our summer 2013 class is open for pre-registration by filling out the form at the bottom of the page.  Alternately, to pre-register your child in the class or to receive more information, you can contact Lexington Systema through the contact link on the right or by emailing
