T.A.G. Muay Thai offers the best martial arts program for children in the Northern Virginia area ⎯Kids’ MMA!
This is not a typical kids’ mixed martial arts (MMA) class. We have the best certified coaches in the business who have extensive experience working with kids, including a fourth-grade school teacher and a summer camp director who manages more than 200+ kids each summer.
We offer numerous self-defense workshops, host multiple competitions and organize many events. More importantly, we know how to make adjustments to enhance every child’s potential, based on his or her age, skill level and temperament.
We’ve trained kids who are legally blind, kids with ADHD, we've been contacted by the state to help instill discipline in their troubled youths and others. Martial arts training can be extremely beneficial for children with special needs ⎯ and for their families!
Children between the ages of 3 and 12 can learn an ancient martial art that is practical for self-defense. Young students gain self-confidence, learn discipline and respect, and get in shape while having fun!
The Kids’ MMA program correlates with our adult Muay Thai programs. Everything kids learn will apply toward the adult curriculum, which helps them on their journey to obtain rank and make a smooth transition into our Adult Phase 1 Fundamentals class.

“We brought our daughter in for private training and for the kids’ classes while we were visiting from out of town. The training was excellent, well organized and well executed. The drills for the kids are at an advanced level and keep them engaged and excited. All the coaches have specialties and are very active in the children’s classes. Kru Chris has assembled an amazing team. Can’t wait to come back in the summer.”

Kids’ MMA classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m.
If you are looking for a place where your child can fight a heavy bag or follow a cardio routine, this isn’t the gym for you. Muay Thai is a contact sport. What separates T.A.G. Muay Thai from other gyms is that our students have self-discipline and control to not hurt each other. They apply proper resistance and pressure to test one another to make sure the technique works. Are they perfect? No. They miss a block and get hit in the face ⎯ it’s training. It is a learning experience, and our students aren’t purposely trying to hurt one another.
There are 13 belt ranks for T.A.G. Kids’ MMA students, from the lowest to the highest level of skill:
“I have four members of my family currently enrolled with TAG. We have been there for almost a year. My three kids have really improved their skills, and we have noticed they are more confident and respectful. My husband also takes adult classes, which he really enjoys. Overall, we have had a great experience, and the coaches are great with the kids.”
