Dear Parent,

If you’re thinking about getting your child involved in martial arts, then you’re going to love what I’m about to share with you. Here’s why…

If I told you there is a proven youth martial arts program in your area that can help your child increase self-esteem, improve behavior, get in great shape, have fun while learning self-defense and life skills, get more focused and lots more, and you could try one FREE Trial Class from this program, would you be interested?

If your answer is “Yes,” then I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and my kids martial arts program that has lots of parents from the Fredericksburg area raving about the positive benefits our program has to offer them and their children.

My name is Chad LeBrun and I’m the owner of The LAB Mixed Martial Arts Academy and I’d like to PROVE to you what our kid's martial arts program can do for your children.


But before I give you a list of some of the benefits our program offers, take a look at what some of our happily-involved parents and students have to say about us.




My son and daughter have been training at The LAB MMA for a little over three years now and we just love it. The facility is beautiful the Instructors are Awesome. We tried other schools in the area and just found a great fit at The LAB. It is a Great blend of Respect, Discipline, and really great self-defense that I hope my kids will never need to use, but it makes me feel good that they can if needed defend themselves. Their grades have improved and there manners have never been better!



It’s an incredible program! My son and I have been training for years at The LAB.



I can tell a tremendous difference in my son’s attitude and behavior, This is something we can both do together. I highly recommend The LAB MMA.

"What Can Martial Arts Give My Child That Other Things Can’t?"

That’s a question we get all the time from concerned parents. Our answer to that is simple. What sets martial arts apart, particularly our specific program designed for kids, is that it teaches a variety of “life skills” and focuses a lot on “character building” not just the flashy punches and kicks you might see in a lot of TV commercials or movies. The physical skills and attributes your child will develop will continually improve because our system is on-going, not “seasonal” like most sports. Our system is about a lifestyle, one that makes kids better people overall – on the mats and off the mats – developing “Champions In Life.” Take a look at what your child will get by being a part of our team.

Why Our Program Is Unique

The LAB’s Junior Jujitsu Program is very unique and there is nothing like it in the area. Life skills, discipline, and respect are staples of our program. We do not teach Tae Kwon Do or Karate which have been proven to not be the most effective forms of self-defense especially for kids. The LAB’s Junior Ju-Jitsu program is heavily influenced by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which is proven to help smaller trained individuals defend themselves against larger opponents which is great for kids. While we teach to never get physical with someone unless it is a last resort. That being said the world can be rough sometimes. We want to give the kids the confidence and verbal skills to defuse the situation but also the physical skills to defend themselves if they have to. We do not want to give them a false sense of security.
