Kids Martial Arts

Woodside Kids Martial Arts have been one of the best tools for teaching children of all ages to become more confident, disciplined and focused – for over 2,000 years! Kids who learn Karate, Kung-Fu or Tae Kwon Do typically get better grades, have a higher self-esteem and have learned how to defend themselves – mentally and physically against a neighborhood or school bully.

The Children's martial arts classes here in Woodside will help your child to reach their full potential and have a ton of fun at the same time!

Muay Thai

Woodside Muay Thai Kickboxing, often referred to as Mui Tai Kick Boxing is a combat sport from Thailand that combines Punching, Kickboxing, Knee and Elbow strikes along with various clinching techniques. A descendent from Muay Boran, Muay Thai Kickboxing is Thailand's national sport.

About Woodside

Woodside, New York is a working class and commercial neighborhood in the western portion of the New York City borough of Queens. It is bordered on the south by Maspeth, on the north by Astoria, on the west by Sunnyside and on the east by Elmhurst and Jackson Heights. Some areas are widely residential and very quiet, while others (especially closer to Roosevelt Avenue) are more urban. The neighborhood is located in Queens Community Board 1 and Queens Community Board 2. For two centuries following the arrival of settlers from England and the Netherlands, the area where the village of Woodside would be established was sparsely populated. The land was fertile but also wet. Its Native American inhabitants called it a place of "bad waters" and it was known to early European settlers as a place of "marshes, muddy flats and bogs," where "wooded swamps" and "flaggy pools" were fed by flowing springs." Until drained in the nineteenth century, one of these wet woodlands was called Wolf Swamp after the predators that infested it. This swamp was not the only place where settlers might fear for the safety of their livestock, and even themselves. One of the oldest recorded locations in Woodside was called Rattlesnake Spring on the property of a Captain Bryan Newton. The vicinity came to be called Snake Woods and one source maintains that "during New York''s colonial period, the area was known as 'suicide''s paradise,' as it was largely snake-infested swamps and wolf-ridden woodlands."

Woodside, NY, with surrounding areas in Sunnyside, Long Island City, Astoria, Maspeth, and Elmhurst is home to Extreme Martial Arts Woodside, a martial arts facility that offers programs in Kids Martial Arts, and Muay Thai.
