TINY TIGERS – 3-5 YRS
Toddler physical and mental development is so vital to a child’s success. Our tiny tiger classes are designed to develop a love for learning. Tigers are given the space to grow their physical skills through trial and guidance. Your child will first learn to follow simple instructions. Over time you’ll notice we can impart more complicated instructions with great success. How do you think this will affect your child’s ability to be successful in life?
It’s the digital age and our children are commonly distracted and disengaged socially. Training in the martial arts gives pre-teens an outlet for reengagement in a great social circle while studying and practicing useful, mindful physical activities. Setting the stage for their future challenges as teens, these young people work together in a physical atmosphere. When males and females train together a number of things take place. There is a uniform, which creates a sameness in the mind. During class constant focus on the self, practicing improvement time and again begins to change thought patterns. The support and help from classmates brings awareness toward the value each person contributes on the journey. To engage physically in martial art study creates respect for self, others’ physical bodies, feelings, and boundaries! Teen years can be such a confusing challenge and we believe respect and boundaries are paramount to a teen’s path into adulthood.
