Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge Youth Programs

The Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge offers a variety of programs designed specifically for children and teens. We believe in providing a fun and exciting environment for our young athletes while ensuring that we are not watering down the technical approach to what we are teaching. The principles of respect, discipline and confidence come about from achieving real results that children can see and feel in the Academy and can carry with them outside in their everyday lives.

Combat Sports vs Martial Arts for Children

Here at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge we strongly feel that learning and competing as a Combat Sport athlete helps children achieve confidence and self discipline better than most traditional Martial Arts that do not have a competitive sport aspect to their training.  We incorporate team training methodologies with learning how to compete in a single competitor sport while learning some of the most effective “Martial Arts” all at the same time.  All of this is done in a fun and exciting environment which will ensure the students wants to come to the Academy and not sit on the couch playing video games!

Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge Youth Programs include the following programs:

Academy Kids (4-8 years old)
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Muay Thai


At the Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge we feel that a great approach to prevent bullying is to provide children with the confidence and attitude they need to know how to avoid the bully as well as the knowledge and expertise to know what to do when they cannot.  This confidence and attitude will be built by success in training and competition, it will be earned by the student themselves through hard work.  Positive results through hard work is the best reward we can give ourselves and we encourage this mentality at the Academy.

The various Youth Programs offered at the Academy are all battle tested and proven self defense disciplines taught by the best coaches in the area.  When law enforcement, military personnel, and professional fighters all want to learn the BEST hand to hand techniques by signing up at the Academy you can be sure that your children are in good hands!
