Our Lil Warrior program is designed specifically for children ages 3-5 years old. Your child will train with other children in their age group, allowing them to feel comfortable and more capable of achieving excellence in a fun and safe learning environment. Throughout each class, we focus on character development skills such as being a first time listener, taking turns, and respect for others as well as developing better balance, coordination, and overall fitness.
Participation in the Lil Warrior program benefits the child’s elementary classroom experience by developing social skills, classroom manners, and leadership skills. Children will be more prepared to participate in classroom discussions and activities with confidence they build at our academy.
Classes are offered for the Lil Warrior program 4 days per week with each class lasting 30 minutes; we recommend that each student attends 2 classes per week.
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING
Students begin by learning the basic stances, blocks, strikes, kick, and escape skills. At each belt level, students are introduced to new material which builds off of previously learned techniques. Your child will have the opportunity to test for a new rank four times per year. This breaks down to four 12 week training cycles. Each week in the training cycle has a specific training theme. The weekly themes include memory, coordination, teamwork, and many others. Students earn 3 curriculum stripes on each belt for learning specific techniques. They also must ear 4 character stripes from parents to be eligible for testing! The success of your child in our program is dependent on consistent training and focus on their goal to earn their BLACK BELT!
We use a few minutes in each class to do an interactive leadership mat chat. Each week there is a different topic for instructors to discuss with students. Students enjoy participating in these motivating conversations about:
Respect - treating others as you want to be treated
Discipline - Doing the right thing regardless if you want to or not
Integrity - Doing what is right when no one is looking
Courage - Getting out of comfort zones and doing things that make us grow as a person
Focus/Concentration - Children learn how to focus all of their attention to the task at hand while committing themselves to learning and growing.
Perseverance/Teamwork - Your child will learn how to face challenges presented to them, knowing that the challenges will be difficult to complete. They will learn how to face challenges alone and with peers.
Courage - Students learn how to overcome fear and nervousness through training that initially seems intimidating.
