When I began accepting children as young as 3 into my classes people thought I was mad – I thought I was mad, especially after the first trial lesson! But I decided to give it just one more go and how glad I am that I did. I was astounded and pleased to see how much better the little ones did on just their second class….. and so began the Little Dragons. Recently a few younger siblings aged between 2 & 2.5 showed a keen desire to join their older siblings. Often I would see them on the sidelines copying and sometimes I would allow them to join in suitable activities. In the end I was persuaded to allow them to join the class. They have done so well that I have decided to offer a class especially for little ones aged 2-3, for as I have found by my own recent experience but also from researching, children as young as 2 years old certainly do get a lot from martial arts training. The habits students develop learning martial arts will stick with them their whole lives.

LISTENING SKILLS:

Each Dragon Cub class will be perfect for your child’s listening and concentration. Each student must focus on the instructor and follow directions for the duration of the class. After just a few classes, students begin listening and following directions better in and outside of class.

HOW TO NOT HIT
At the end of every class we teach, we talk about using our self-control and how to treat other people. This includes not hitting other children. Every class we talk about “self-control before self-defence” which helps kids understand the importance of always walking away when they can and to always tell an adult.

CONFIDENCE

Martial arts classes develop a child’s self-esteem and confidence. My program will help build your child’s confidence and self-esteem, making them unstoppable!

MOTOR SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Ju Jitsu classes are great for the development of your child’s physical skills. Classes focus on working on your child’s balance and eye-hand coordination. These developed skills will be sure to help your child in all aspects of their lives.

EXERCISE
Have you ever wondered how your children have so much energy? Do you ever wish they had a positive outlet to burn some off? Then Dragon Cubs are the perfect activity for your children. They’ll burn off that extra steam while accomplishing everything above.
