For the youngest children we teach Mini Elements. This class is for children from 3 to 5 years of age. The aim is to improve your child’s coordination and fitness through skills based on martial arts. There is no contact allowed in these classes.
The Little Dragons classes start to introduce children to some of the martial aspects of the club, such as fitness, balance, control and basic punches and kicks to introduce the kids to the concept of self defence in a safe and responsible environment. Classes are 30 minutes long and we use the Good to be Green behaviour system and badges are every 6 weeks.
The Juniors Martial Arts class teaches the important values of respect, confidence and self esteem to children. Classes are 45 minutes long. Children start to learn more martial skills to develop on what is taught in the Little Dragons classes. This class is mainly kickboxing with great core skills covering use of the pads and punchbags including partner drills. We also introduce the foam nunchaku which the kids love and encourages greater concentration and determination to work hard.
