Health, fitness and safety for children
F3- ActivKidz is a fusion of Children's programmes provided by the combined activities of F3- Fitness, Martial Arts and Holistic Health, F3- Yoga School & F3- Tai Chi & Chi Kung Academy. We believe that each child has the potential for greatness. In Budokids® we teach the children to express themselves physically while engaging their minds with education about Nutrition, Environmental Awareness, Thought Awareness, Relationships, and Psychology. We are also continually striving to offer our Budokids® the very best training available. By fusing art forms such as Gracie Kids, Budokon®, Zen Meditation and more, we are able to deliver a well rounded approach to your child’s development.
What is BUDOKIDS®?
BudoKids® is a programme of Martial arts, yoga and wellness for children. Healthy living as we grow up is supported by proper exercise and nutrition. World renowned trainer to the stars, Cameron Shayne, has created a fun, dynamic learning programme for kids using exercise, yoga and martial arts techniques as well as nutritional counselling to assure our kids grow up fit and strong.
BUDOKIDS® teaches a combination of Boxing, Kickboxing, Karate, Taekwondo, Capoeira, Jiu-Jitsu, Yoga and Zen Meditation. This is an excellent class to teach your child discipline and improve their health and fitness! Sparring is not required and must be approved by both parent and coach beforehand.
At what age can my child join?
BUDOKIDS® is suitable for children aged between 5 and 12 years of age. Martial Arts is the Best Thing You Can Do for Your Child! Through martial arts discipline and positive reinforcement your child will develop what we proudly call the three S's: Self-confidence, Self-esteem and Self-respect. They will learn the values of being goal oriented and passionate about excellence. Your child will develop an outgoing attitude and the ability to be his or her best.
Our students learn to master the 6 pillars of the Budokon system:
2. Emotions 5. Nutrition
3. Relationships 6. Movement & Fitness1. Thoughts 4. Environment
These are the six most important areas of our life. Under each pillar, we cover a wide variety of topics including brain development, language, cognition, belief systems, ego-states, relationship patterns, physiology, biomechanics, dietary guidelines, environmental sustainability, yoga, martial arts, meditation techniques, and much more. As you progress in belt rank you build upon the base knowledge you have learned from the previous work.

The Founder & Creator of
"BUDOKON® IS A LIVING ART. BY THAT I MEAN IT IS THE ART OF LIVING. IT IS YOUR WAKING AND YOU’RE SLEEPING, YOU’RE WALKING AND YOU’RE SITTING, YOUR LIVING AND YOUR DYING. I CANNOT SAY THAT IT IS MORE SPECIAL THAN ANY OTHER ART. IN FACT, IT IS NOT SPECIAL AT ALL. IT IS THE PRACTITIONER WHO BRINGS ALL THAT THE ART IS, ALL THAT THE ART WILL EVER BE. THERE IS NOTHING TO GAIN FROM IT. IT IS SIMPLY A WAY. OUR WAY IS THE ZEN WAY. WE DO NOT PRACTICE TO BECOME ENLIGHTENED. WE PRACTICE BECAUSE WE ARE ENLIGHTENED".
- KANCHO CAMERON SHAYNE
