Ages (3 & 1/2 through 6 years)
Among the many activities available to children today, martial arts is one of the best for developing motor skills, focus, discipline, respect, and responsibility. Most of all, it's fun! At Family Karate Center, we understand the importance of maintaining a proper balance of challenge, education, and fun. Our instructors specialize in children's martial arts classes.
Our "Little Dragon" program incorporates creative, fun activities designed to develop a strong foundation not only in the martial arts, but also to help in all other areas of your child's life. This includes drills for coordination, agility, muscle strength, speed, reaction, etc. In addition to the physical aspect of our classes, a strong emphasis is placed on being the best person each student can possibly be and learning valuable life skills!
Come find out for yourself why we have had so mandy students begin their martial arts journey with us at age 3 1/2 and choose to stay with us through college and beyond!
An important part of our program at Family Karate Center is teaching "Stranger Danger". This will include knowing their home address, parents' first and last names as well as their phone number. Our goal is to teach the children who a stranger is and what can be done if a stranger approaches them; what to say and what to do.
The development of self-confidence and self-esteem is the overall aim of the Little Dragons Program here at Family Karate Center. Each student who takes karate begins with a certain goal. The attaining of this goal builds self-confidence and helps the student to set more goals, not just in karate but in all areas of their lives.
Our expert, experienced instructors know how to talk to your child and how to influence them to make good choices through positive reinforcement. They know how to engage with your child in a way that fosters positive growth!
