our little kickers and big kickers
program, we teach our students to be responsible with their
knowledge of karate and self-defense, demonstrating their
skills only for immediate family members. We teach peaceful
conflict resolution techniques and anger management skills.
We also teach our children to recognize and avoid danger.
Most importantly, we offer children an opportunity to build
self confidence and self esteem. We teach them to defend themselves
from negative peer pressure and to avoid participating in
unhealthy activities. We also offer goal setting techniques,
leadership skills and rewards for academic excellence in the
form of uniform patches for academic achievement. Our program
complements and reinforces the healthy lifestyle choices and
values our parents nurture in their children.
"little kickers" classes are for boys and girls
from three and one half to seven and one half years old. We
believe that children are able to learn more complex things
at an early age and that the earlier a child learns a difficult
task, the sooner that child can master an even more difficult
task. Our program teaches young people to develop their attention
span, bi-lateral motor skills, physical strength, muscle tone
and aerobic endurance. We are concentrating on and teaching
children to recognize and avoid danger.
