Little Dragon's Program
At AMERICAN KARATE ACADEMY -Your child’s life will be changed forever, We understand how important your child is to you. As professional martial arts instructors, we take it very seriously when teaching your children. Our Little Dragons Program is specifically designed for children ages 4-7 yrs old.
Our youngest students experience the martial arts in a “Little Dragons” class where they develop improved listening skills and focus in a class atmosphere which leads to success at school. A positive self-image and “I can do it” attitude becomes ingrained while their motor skills progress giving them an athletic edge in other sports. The Little’ Dragons Program focuses on the basic fundamentals of martial arts and life. Kicking, punching, blocking, and basic self-defense skills are taught and practiced in each class. These young children are also taught the formal etiquette of martial arts training such as bowing, standing at attention, looking straight ahead, forming a straight line with the other children, and responding to instruction from the teacher.
Through creative games and learning activities, your child will develop the skills required to be a successful martials arts student. The excitement of each class makes our students thrilled to come back to class time and time again. The students might think they are playing games or passing 'challenges' but they are really learning the building blocks for success both inside and outside of the dojo. Our Little Dragons are welcome to come twice or three times per week for their training sessions. Come in and enroll your child today.
