About

OUR SYSTEM

3 areas of focus: 

Martial arts skills:  Our structured curriculum introduces children to martial arts techniques weekly, incorporating fundamental elements like blocks, kicks, strikes, awareness, basic self-defense, and the all important KI-YAH!

Motor Skills: Children will improve focus, coordination, strength, discipline, physical and emotional control, in a fun, and encouraging atmosphere. By honing in on these skills early, children can perform better in school and other physical activities, becoming better listeners and improving concentration along the way.

Social Skills : Every new session, students focus on one of six character traits or social skills based on the animal style like Patience, Respect, Focus, Confidence, Positivity, and Loyalty. 

Patient

Respectful

focused

Loyal

positive

Confident

 

What does each class entail?

We start each class with a fun and active warm up. We then move on to teaching different fundamental techniques, like blocks, punches and kicks.  We incorporate games and challenges that work on coordination, motor skills, and balance. Based on the animal, some new techniques and games will be introduced each session. In addition to physical fitness, children also learn about etiquette, discipline, and respect, which parents dig! We incorporate values of traditional martial arts disciplines, only in a more creative and fun manner. The “promise of the ninja” and “certificate of achievement” are some fun ways we reinforce martial arts values, while keeping children engaged. Our drills and games are martial arts or sports focused, designed to hide repetition, in order to maximize enjoyment for each child. Children also gain knowledge and build muscle memory laying the foundation for any martial art, should they decide to continue outside of class when graduating from Young Ninjas.
