4-6 YEAR OLD PROGRAM
This program is designed for children ages 4-6 years old. Classes focus on developing coordination, balance, and listening skills through the fun and excitement of the martial arts. Each class is 30 minutes long and consists of different sections to ensure that students have a well-rounded experience of mental and physical exercise. Instructors discuss important themes such as effort, responsibility, staying hydrated, etc. This exercises students’ cognitive processes as they are encouraged to answer and ask questions, as well as reach conclusions through deductive reasoning. Classes include specialized activity that is meant to improve one of many specific skills, such as catching, throwing, listening, running, hand-eye coordination. Additionally, students engage in martial arts practice during which students are taught to learn and remember basic martial arts techniques. The 4-6 Yr. Old Program is completely geared toward overall physical and mental development through repetition, fun, and self-confidence. Students learn to voice themselves to their instructors and fellow students in a way that is often suppressed in other activities targeting the young adolescent age group. The social improvement alone of students who graduate from the program is complete proof of its effectiveness. The kids make eye contact, address their peers and instructors in a cheerful/respectful manner and express astonishing focus. This program is suitable for a wide range of children of almost all physical and mental capabilities.
