NMMA Kids are AET Kids

NMMA is AET & NMMA Kids are AET Kids. 

So we are proud to be a part of the upcoming AET Kids Openday and Skills workshop on Saturday July 30th 2016

Tonks and NMMA have been a part of the AET family since the beginning and when we compete, we compete as AET. 

This is an excellent opportunity for our children to learn our core values from the best that AET has to offer. 

NMMA already has a crew attending on the day. If you haven’t booked your kid’s place for the event, speak to Jenny or Tonks. 

You don’t want your kids to miss the opportunity to be on the mats with Australia’s No. 1 BJJ team… The Australian Elite Team… AET.

Learning should be fun, at any age, but particularly when you are young.

There is only so much technique anyone can handle night after night.

One of the things that makes Northern Mixed Martial Arts great is the Matt Tonkin‘s philosophy of “Learning through fun”.

It’s the mixture of technique learning and repeated technique execution finished off with a coating of fun.

Don’t tell the kids, but there is reason to Matt’s madness.

Yes, the kids are having fun, but they are also developing key skills: strength; endurance; balance; reflexes; and to bring it full circle – fun even during competition.

It’s one of the reasons the kids badger their parents to return night after night.

Watch the kids in action: Continue reading
