Our 5-on up! Class: Focus on the developmental growth of the student in order to prepare the child for school. In addition to learning basic martial arts skills, the students will learn to interact with peers through group drills & games. A large portion of the program is dedicated to teaching the students to have self-control and listening to & following directions for each activity. There is an emphasis on following directions through various games & activities. They will develop their balance and motor skills while learning basic martial arts & our “kid friendly self-defense techniques”. We love for them to have fun while maintaining a very structured learning environment.

How we Help
Class focuses on motor skills & coordination. It allows each student to understand their body through running, jumping, and basic martial art skills. The teaching style has a lot of positive reinforcement for the efforts being made and less on the exactness of a technique. With the positive reinforcement, the student develops the confidence to try other martial art drills in the curriculum. Not only do they develop confidence within themselves, but they develop confidence amongst their classmates and even at performing in front of others. The class also reinforces everything that is taught at home and school. We discuss and practice focus, paying attention and not interrupting when an adult is speaking. We emphasize being polite, having etiquette, and showing self-control and discipline especially if a sibling is involved.
