We divide our Kids into three age groups.
Little Dragons - Ages 3 to 5: Our Little Dragons program is specially designed for our youngest students. This is a stepping stone program for little ones that aren’t quite ready for the regular class but have lots of energy and enthusiasm. The goal in this class is to develop the basic motor skills needed for martial art. We emphasize proper group behavior and interaction, being attentive and following directions, and goal setting. This is an amazing program and school teachers rave how well our Little Dragons behave in pre-school and Kindergarten.
Kids - Ages 5 to 8: Between the ages of 5 and 6, most kids are ready to begin our regular program. Etiquette is the first thing our kids learn as well as how to use their martial art skills appropriately. Our Kids curriculum is designed to be challenging but not impossible. "The goals we set are the Goals we get" is our motto for the kids. We want them looking for the future reward of their hard work today.
Juniors Ages 9 to 12: At this age, many students have begun a major maturing stage. We capitalize on this by a implementing a more challenging curriculum that rewards them for extra effort. It is important for this age group to understand average is just as close to the bottom as it is to the top. We use positive reinforcement to motivate these students to achieve their potential. We strive to prepare them for the challenges they'll face going into Jr. High and High School.
