Kidsafe® Children and Teens


More than just Kung Fu

Eastern Ways specializes in teaching the Kidsafe® method of self-defense and awareness training for children of all ages. While all Eastern Ways students learn practical self-defense skills, young students learn to treat their feelings and intuitions as important, and to be confident in their ability to use their arts to defend themselves.

Eastern Ways Kidsafe® students learn to be successful through hard work and discipline.
