If possible have separate children and adult groups. Furthermore divide your childrenīs classes in at least 2 age groups, from very young (5-8)to young (9-12), preteeens can workout with adults. Finally if itīs martial arts you are trying to infuse donīt be afraid to enforce disciplinary measures to single out rowdy students. Calling someone's attention in front of the whole group works well, expelling someone out of class works well to. Note: I've never had to discipline a student in our childrenīs classes, the measures I mentioned have been used sucessfully in our adultīs classes!
