Kung Fu Kids


PhD Martial Arts addresses so many of the issues kids face today from school and street safety to having the self-confidence to know how to handle a bully. Over 90% of the parents of our students regularly report improvement in the areas of Confidence, Focus, and Reaching Academic Goals. 

This program is designed over 20 years of experience.  To develop our future leaders!  Developing coordination, social and life skill as well a personal self-defense skills. 

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the Martial Arts. The PhD Martial Arts has developed a program based on traditional Kung Fu San Soo for kids called Kung Fu Kids (KFK). The curriculum is based on the belief that every child is special and every child is a winner.

Kung Fu Kids (KFK) are girls and boys who range in age from 6 to 12. They run the spectrum in size, age and maturity, but all have the desire to participate in an organized athletic program with a variety of activities and goals.

In addition to the pure enjoyment derived from participating in Master Jim’s program, Kung Fu Kids provides a list of underlying benefits and achievements for every single member. The Kung Fu Kids system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. The building blocks (Life Skills) for our system are monthly themes such as:

Goals, Honor, Self-Control, Respect, Attitude, Perseverance, Courtesy, Integrity, and Loyalty


Kung Fu San Soo teaches children to react with the things learned (muscle memory), to think instead of panic when compromised.

Building Self-Confidence with Goal setting

The unique Life Skill approach encourages our students to set their personal goals. The student’s confidence increases with every goal achieved. Each child progresses at their own pace, and no one is ever judged in comparison to others. Each child’s accomplishments are celebrated in a way that promotes motivation to achieve more, and recognition of process as part of the achievement.

Better Grades

Being a Kung Fu Kid also means being a better student. Developing personal skills is a major part of the program. Paying attention in class, respecting those teaching, and becoming an active participant during their Kung Fu San Soo classes will in return reinforce the same attributes for school.


Kung Fu San Soo challenges the entire body. It develops and improves coordination, body awareness, balance, agility and poise.

Fitness & Fun

Classes at PhD Martial Arts are fun, dynamic and challenging. Our classes are a mix of high energy, seriousness, traditional Kung Fu San Soo and games. A balance in the curriculum is key to the PhD Martial Arts program.
