In this fun and engaging class, you and your child will enjoy working together to help build coordination, balance, and social skills, so that your child will be prepared for the more challenging classes ahead of them. Most children start this class at the age of 2, and it is a great way to start children off with their very first experience with motor skills and focus outside of the home. Another benefit of this class is that you will be able to interact with your child on the mat every week to help build strong family bonds at an early age.
This is an important class where children begin to gain confidence amongst other children and learn skills that help them with social interaction, focus, discipline, and further improve their balance and coordination. During the pre-kindergarten years, our classes focus on getting kids to respond positively to physical and mental challenges in a group setting. They learn real martial arts and Jiu Jitsu, but in a fun and interactive way in order to help them learn teamwork and group involvement. Classes also focus on respect for others, sharing, as well as how to fall and get up safely through tumbling and other fun activities.
In this program kids are challenged more as they reach the elementary school ages. Children learn real life bully defense through physical and verbal systems. Through the Jiu Jitsu techniques in these classes, kids learn to defend themselves without having to punch or kick but instead using leverage and control. This program is also designed to help fortify social skills through the building of confidence and friendships in class and through academy events. Classes focus on teaching life lessons such as self-control, and patience as well as making sure that kids are “bully proof” for their elementary school years.
In this program, the focus is on, self-awareness, confidence, improved athleticism, bully prevention, and interpersonal skills. Children are given fun and positive activities which help them to develop strength, agility, and speed. Through their improved physical skills, they gain confidence and awareness which helps them to make quick, positive decisions when confronted with daily challenges. This helps a great deal while kids are going through their pre-teen and teenage years. The training in the Teens classes is always geared towards helping build positive habits in order to fight negative habits common among teenagers.
