At Home MMA With Your Kids

At Home MMA With Your Kids is a video series for parents to instruct their children (ages 4+) in basic mixed martial arts. Skills are designed so that parents can easily teach without having any prior knowledge in martial arts.

At Home MMA With Your Kids was created by Eric Umali, his staff, and students of The Pit 702 in Henderson, NV. Eric and his team of instructors have been teaching mixed martial arts for over eight years, helping hundreds of children (and parents) get healthy by learning legit mixed martial arts.

At Home MMA With Your Kids can be used as a standalone tutorial or for children already enrolled in martial arts academy, to reinforce their skills. It was designed with zero equipment in mind, can be performed in a small area, and at a time of your convenience.
