The Little Ninjas Program uses the Early Skillz curriculum. This age group love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. The problem is that many children this age have a hard time with structure in a group environment, like what is found in most martial art schools. By understanding the stages of Development of 3 & 4 year olds we are able to work on the 8 age appropriate skills below that make up the Early Skillz program: Kicking, Punching, Blocking, Crawling, Hopping, Rolling, Running, Catching. We take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use early elements of traditional martial arts curriculums to build skills that are appropriate for 3 & 4 year olds. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging. The best part is the Early Skillz program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of life.

Five and Six year olds are the most enthusiast students. They love creativity and problem solving, which makes them ideal students in the martial arts. The problem we discovered is they are so progressive in following tasks that some teachers tend to treat them like their older peers. This is a problem because they still do not have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children 7 and up. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of Development in a manner that adapts to their social and intellectual curiosity while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said, a structured program introducing basic skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.

By understanding the stages of Development of 5 & 6 year old, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills below that make up the Basic Skillz program. They are: Focus, Teamwork, Control, Memory, Balance, Discipline, Fitness, Coordination.

We cover one of the above skills per class (in order). During each class we run a warm up; deliver a Mat Chat about the skill; run two or three skill-building drills; then we have them demonstrate the skill to earn their skill stripe. They must earn all 8 skill stripes in order to graduate to the next belt level. Once they earn their next belt, they will continue to run thru all 8 skills earning their skill stripes with more challenging curriculum as they advance to each rank. They graduate to the Juniors Program after they have successfully completed all 9 belt ranks of the Basic Skills program.

Seven to Eleven year olds are what most people consider “the golden age.” They are proficient in their vocabulary and problem-solving skills, yet they are not at the age where they want complete independence from adults. This makes the teacher-student relationship stronger than ever. The problem we discovered is they still lack core skills, and although they are highly intelligent, they struggle to keep up with students ages 12 and up. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said, a structured program-introducing core skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.

We target four stages of development:

-Physical

-Intellectual

-Emotional

-Social

By understanding the stages of development of 7 to 11 year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Juniors Program:

-AGILITY

-TECHNIQUE

-COURAGE

-FLEXIBILITY

-INTENSITY

-PERSERERANCE

-SPEED

-CONCENTRATION

We cover one of the above skills per class. During each class we run a warm-up; deliver a mat chat about the skill; run two or three skill-building drills; and then we have them demonstrate the skill to earn their skill-stripe. They must earn all 8 skill-stripes in order to graduate to the next belt level. Once they earn their next belt they will continue to run through all 8 skills earning their skill-stripes with more challenging curriculum as they advance to each rank. They graduate to the Adult program after they have successfully completed all 9 belt ranks of the Junior program.
