Our Coaches Have 20+ Years Coaching Experience

The Mini Me MMA & Kids Training program introduces children ages 4-12yrs old to safe physical activity and martial arts.  By teaching children how to play safely and have fun learning about fitness and martial arts, they begin to learn how their bodies work and how to interact with others.

  • Have fun and make new friends
  • Enjoy being active and learning the basics of grappling and striking
  • Learn how to play safe with your peers
  • Develop coordination and body awareness
  • Develop confidence through practice and success
  • Learn the values and virtues of martial arts: courage, discipline, respect, hard-work, humility and honour

Through a curriculum that teaches general striking and grappling skills, children learn about self-defence and concepts within martial arts.  They develop confidence and discipline through continued practice and improvement with the guidance of Grant’s MMA Gym’s excellent instructors.

With obesity rates, health concerns and mental health issues on the rise, the Mini Me MMA program from Grants Kids Boxing Gym in North York (Toronto) focuses on developing a child’s enjoyment of exercise, adopting an active lifestyle early on in life and building a child’s confidence and socialization skills to support the growth of essential life skills.

Reasons I like to coach
Watching kids develop as athletes and competitors.

Jaymyi Lesmond

I joined this gym in May 2013. I train about 3-4 days a week. Ever since then, I've had nothing but pleasant experiences. RG is the best boxing trainer and consistently pushes me to reach new limits. Dom's bjj program is always engaging. The people are amazing and always push each other to do more. Would recommend this gym to anyone beginner or advanced.

Brett Taggart

Great boxing/MMA gym. Not only do coaches go out of their way to deliver top notch instruction, fellow students and fighters reach out and help each other improve. No bullshit, people are there to put in work and improve. Welcoming environment committed to working harder and improvement.!

Elena Megas

The coaches at this gym are great motivators and very knowledgable in boxing and MMA. The atmosphere is great, the classes are catered to each one's level and the level of training is intense, yet not overwhelming. If you are looking to learn or improve in boxing/ MMA, get in shape, or to just let your demons out, this is the place to be!
