BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn toddlers are trading in their ABCs and crayons for karate kicks and black belts. 

The Williamsburg Mixed Martial Arts Academy has a new program for 2- and 3-year-olds to learn karate and Jiu Jitsu. 

The pint-sized martial arts masters aren't chopping blocks yet, but they do use soccer balls to simulate kicks and noodles to blow boxing punches. 

Instructor Roger Namedov says the program stimulates the kids physically and mentally through a variety of activities, while teaching lessons in discipline and creativity.
