Children are introduced to basic life skills such as respect, confidence and having a positive attitude. Using positive reinforcement techniques the children develop both gross and fine motor skills as well as how to take turns, follow directions and manage frustration i.e. no temper tantrums. Children are introduced to personal safety techniques, stranger danger, handling bullies, how to fall properly, and what to do if they become lost.
Children learn the fundamentals of martial arts and self defence. The program will keep them physically fit and help with the benefits of good behaviour, teamwork, good manners, patience and trying their best. The program covers valuable lessons on bullying and stranger danger.
So much more than just kicking and punching, our aim is to develop the habits of winners early .Children learn that consistent attendance creates perseverance and the ability to over come difficulties. Developing an “I CAN” attitude and having that constantly reinforced in class, opens the door to the gift of self esteem, confidence and self respect that will stay with your child for life.
The Children’s Martial Arts and self defence practiced in the Junior class is dynamic and fast paced. Students learn excellent martial arts skills from the martial art of SHINBUDO. There is a strong emphasis placed on developing leadership, individual responsibility and the philosophy of Martial Arts.
This is an outstanding program for children as they develop into young adults. Being around strong leaders and role models mentors the development of strong values and morals. From early in the program considerable emphasis is given to overcoming difficulties that may enhance negative behavior.
Our aim is to give your children the best shot at learning and maintaining a ‘winners attitude’ long term, and learning the secret of applying that same formula to everything that appears before them.
