Punchin' Pandas

This the home of the original Punchin Pandas children's martial arts character development program, created by Julie Hutton, this is the best martial art program for kids aged from 4-9 years old.

We are the outright market leaders in this type of martial arts training for children and have forged such a formidable nationwide reputation so good that copycat programs have popped up with names like little ninjas and lil dragons, but the EMK martial arts Punchin Pandas is still the no.1 in the UK.

To prove that Punchin Pandas is the best, we offer all children a FREE one to one Introductory tour and FREE taster class here at the Loughborough Martial Arts Education Centre with the creator of Punchin Pandas, Sensei Julie Hutton herself!

Mrs Hutton Created a program with 8 Learning Modules, designed specifically for pre-school and junior school aged children. They are;

  • Courtesy
  • Respect
  • Self Discipline
  • Confidence
  • Concentration
  • Kindness
  • Perseverance
  • Super Panda Cub

Here are some things, some very nice people have said about Punchin Pandas:

Thomas loves his lessons and always looks forward to meeting Punchin Panda. He is nearly achieving his ambition of becoming a Ninja Turtle! It has helped him to concentrate and keep control of his body! Not an easy thing for a fun loving 5 year old! These classes are great to help build confidence and concentration and lots of other life skills. It's a thumbs up for EMK Punchin Pandas.

Ben loves coming to your class! It's improved his self confidence no end. He had his first grading last week and he was so proud to get his first belt. I've never seen him so passionate about anything. Seeing him graduate on Sat will be very special. Thank you EMK, for helping my little boy believe in himself and giving him an all important life skill.

I was looking for something for Nehha which would improve her concentration, confidence and be enjoyable at the same time. That's when I saw your advert at the leisure Centre. It was the best decision we made, she loves it, we can't wait for Saturday mornings! And my son who is 2 and a bit is chomping at the bit to start!!! Brilliant. I recommend it!

Our daughter joined EMK two years ago. She trains three to four times a week and thoroughly enjoys her time she spends there. All instructors are professional, friendly, approachable and very talented. Alisha has grown in confidence and her social skills have improved immensely I am sure this is due to the positive attitudes of those involved in pushing her to further thrive. She has also made some great friends during her journey towards her black belt! She is so focused and such a different little girl thank you all so much.

...My son started karate with EMK at the age of four, he was a shy, quite timid boy who was even nervous with some family members. I obviously wanted to increase his confidence and I looked into Karate after seeing adverts for it. I can honestly say that from the first few weeks of joining punchin' pandas his confidence grew very quickly and he came out of his shell of which we we're both very pleased. He started school later that year with ease and now has a large amount of friends and has no trouble with meeting new people (both children and adults) He has now progressed to the leadership class that he thoroughly enjoys. I can only thank the EMK team in helping our son become the confident little boy he has turned into. We look forward to the coming years as Jacob hopefully goes all the way to blackbelt. Thanks again.

Since joining East Midlands Karate only few months ago, our children have come on in leaps and bounds. Not only have they learned martial arts skills, but even more importantly, their self-confidence has flourished. Values like self-discipline and respect are key to the teaching methods; values which can be translated into everyday life situations like the school playground.

It’s great to see dedicated instructors like Mr & Mrs Hutton pass on their expertise in a way that makes it fun and rewarding for the children. I’d have no hesitation in recommending EMK to anyone considering taking up the sport. Thank You.
