    You might also want to check Kali Majapahit. They have classes for young children and teenagers.

    The philosophy behind Kali Majapahit is that Martial Arts training is not only about physical skills, focus and self-confidence, but also about reaching challenging goals, and building up our health and energy level. Every class will emphasize 3 aspects of the Art : Self-defense / Martial Arts culture, Health tips (including posture correction, breathing, nutrition, etc.), and Personal Development.
