OUR SYSTEM

Rotating sessions keep students coming back for more. Every new session, we focus our course on a different animal – incorporating a vocabulary of martial arts moves, training games, and etiquette. Each session, students will receive a new color headband based on the animal, a cool incentive to keep children excited. At the end of each session, all students will receive a personalized Certificate Of Achievement based on the animal theme and will walk away with new skills and a whole lot of self-confidence!

3 AREAS OF FOCUS:

Martial Arts Skills: e.g. blocking, self-awareness, kicking, punching, etc.

Motor Skills: e.g. balance, coordination, control, awareness, muscle development, etc.

Social Skills: e.g. respecting others, following instructions, teamwork, trying hard, sportsmanship, etc.

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.

 

My son first signed up for the Young Ninjas class when it was offered through his preschool when he was about 3 1/2 years old. He absolutely loved the class so much that we have continued it for the past year. My son and his friends were so excited each week they had class. Can’t say enough great things about the program and the teachers.

We love Young Ninjas!!! Our daughter Sydney looks forward to it every week. It is teaching her listening, self-discipline in addition to the physical skills. I also LOVE the fact that it is offered at her school- so she gets to be with her friends. 

Susan C. (enrichment)

We love the class and Alistair raves about it. I’d say Young Ninjas is a solid 5 in our book. The thing I appreciate most is that I really think this class has helped him pay attention more and follow directions – something that will surely be useful next year in kindergarten.
