Why Consider Martial Arts For your Child?

Don and Theresa Wideman, parents of two children and owners of Black Belt America, created a unique martial arts system for family members from age 3 to adult. In addition to learning exciting physical martial arts skills, students can excel in a variety of enriching experiences such as Leadership, Performance, and Competition teams.

Black Belt America’s programs are built on a strong foundation of eight values that students apply daily, both in and outside of the martial arts classroom.

Busy parents seeking rich, diverse experiences for their children will find what their family needs at Black Belt America’s B.E.S.T.

Little Ninjas 3-4 years old

As you are probably aware, younger children are very active and easily distracted. They are moving into a stage where everything is a new and is an exciting discovery phase for them.


Our professional instructors follow fun, structured class plans that are appropriate for this age group.


These nationally recognized classes focus on this young age group as they need to develop gross motor skills, listening skills, and learning in a group setting with other children of similar age and skill levels. 

Little Champions 5-7 years old

Five through seven-year-olds are enthusiastic, High energy students. They love learning new things, especially things that challenge them with rewards (At BBA they earn different color belts as they learn) Physically they are beginning to develop balance, speed, and coordination.


Their ability to focus, although higher than the younger kids, still needs a structured environment so that they can develop even higher levels of focus and concentration. This is the age at which we also begin leadership training which is so important and proven to raise a child's confidence and self-esteem. 

Youth Program

Children at this age, although still developing, are starting to show signs of independence and the ability to problem-solve on their own. It's hard to believe, but children of this age are only a few short years away from their teenage years 


Children enrolled in our nationally-recognized program function very well within the structure of this class and their development can be rapid and amazing. At this level, we are focusing on their self-defense skills but just as importantly we are developing their leadership skills.


We have found that children of this age fall into three categories leader, follower, or loner, and we want our students to be in the Leader category and are well on their way to becoming confident Black Belt Leaders!
