Teen Karate

Lil’ Dragons – Ages 4- 6

Four to six year olds are extremely enthusiastic students! They enjoy creativity and problem solving, and this is the perfect mind-set for a martial arts student. The challenge we discovered is that they excel so much at learning that there can be a tendency to want to treat them like their older peers. This will not work because they do not quite have the basic skill and coordination to keep up with children ages seven and up. The approach we developed to solve this is to provide them with their own method specifically designed for their stage of development. The natural social and intellectual curiosity that the children exhibit in this age group is harnessed and directed to build their confidence and ability. We also know that children need to have FUN, and that their level of sheer enjoyment profoundly enhances their ability to learn and grow. Rather than using any harsh or severe punitive methods to “keep children in line”, like some rigid philosophies, we find that gentle but firm positive reinforcement is much more effective. It’s also a far more positive experience for your child!

Adult Karate

Junior Dragons – Ages 7-12

Seven to twelve year olds are at the ideal age to truly integrate an advanced self-defense method like Kung Fu into their “muscle memory”. This means that it is a precious gift that they will be forever grateful for because it will support their confidence and self-esteem for their entire lives! At this point they are also usually proficient in their language and problem solving skills, yet they are not quite at the age where they want complete independence from adults. This makes the Sifu-student bonding and positive role-modeling relationship stronger than ever! The challenge we discovered is that they still lack some core skills, and although they can be highly intelligent, they are not yet quite as sophisticated as the twelve to seventeen year olds. The approach we developed to solve this is to provide them with their own method specifically designed for their stage of development. The adventurous attitude and youthful nature that the children exhibit in this age group is harnessed and directed to build their confidence and ability. We also know that children need to have FUN, and that their level of sheer enjoyment profoundly enhances their ability to learn and grow. Rather than using any harsh or severe punitive methods to “keep children in line”, like some rigid philosophies, we find that gentle but firm positive reinforcement is much more effective. It’s also a far more positive experience for your child!
