Children's Program

In the Children’s Martial Arts classes, 4 to 7 year olds have fun while gaining confidence, body awareness, and basic self-defense skills.  Along the way, these students “learn how to learn” by developing group interaction skills, self-discipline, focus and respect for others.

Classes are designed with consideration for the shorter attention span of younger students.  Leaping, ducking, rolling, and dodging skills are all taught as methods of avoidance in addition to other extensive “Stranger Danger” skills.  Elaborate obstacle courses and games have been created to best teach these skills in a fun way that keeps the energy high and the learning fun and exciting.  The classes are safe and non-competitive. 

We believe in an abundance of praise, encouragement, and positive reinforcement.  Our young students are treated with respect, and are taught to return the same respect to others.
