Has developed a special program for children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, the program is designed to be fun and consistent with each child's development level.
LITTLE DRAGONS CLASS OBJECTIVES ARE THE FOLLOWING
* develop attention and listening skills
* develop motor skills and fitness
* teach respect and discipline
* develop social interactive skills and team work
* prepare young students with good basic martial arts skills, in order to promote them into the regular martial arts curriculum.
The martial arts are based on individual performance, so every child moves on at a different speed. There are no set time limits for advancement. Building these skills takes time and consistent reinforcement, so please be patient. Parents can help their children by being consistent with attendance and reinforcing the Tae Kwon Do principles at home. It is very difficult for the children if their attendance is sporadic. We recommend 2-3 classes per week for the best results. Creating a routine will make getting your children here easier. Each of your children is an individual with different needs so please do not compare them with the other children. We are here to help, so any problems or special needs can be addressed if you let us know. We want your children to become confident and competent in the martial arts.
The benefits of the martial arts are limitless, especially with the children (and parents) who are able to be persistent and consistent. Please let us know if we can help with anything. We test the dragons approximately every 3 months. This is in order to teach them how to set goals and to increase their self-esteem. Belt testing is a great way to keep your child's interest and to allow them to feel proud and confident.
