PARENTS IN Fredericksburg ARE ASTONISHED BY THE POSITIVE IMPACT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES ARE HAVING ON THEIR CHILD!
You might naturally associate martial arts with hollywood stunts and kicks and punches, but the self-defense aspect of martial arts is just part of it. Children that learn martial arts develop the confidence to know that if they are ever bullied, they have the skills they need to defend themselves. However, the real skill we teach is diffusing situations with words before they ever escalate to a physical level.
For students that are 4 to 6 years of age, the class focuses primarily on developing the most fundamental skills that young students require to effectively learn Judo. This is a fun-filled class designed to teach the kids through games and quick-changing drills.
Examples of fundamental skills learned are: basic coordination, balance, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination and spatial awareness. Basic hold-downs, falling, and throwing techniques are taught in this class. This class includes a few rounds of sparring on the ground for hold-down.
For students that are 7 to 9 years of age, the class focuses primarily on developing the most fundamental skills that young students require to effectively learn Judo. This is a fun-filled class designed to teach the kids through games and quick-changing drills.
Part of our curriculum is the ongoing review and development of life skills such as:
• Positive mental attitude • High goal-setting
• Perseverance • Self-control • Confidence
Our philosophy with students this young is that any activity must be fun and interesting for the child or they won’t absorb what they learn. The kids will get used to listening to the instructors and following along with the class. Students are taught skill-sets in small pieces with games built around them, so that the kids absorb the skills quickly and permanently.
We have two big rules we try to get across to the kids. We tell our students to “Try your best,” especially on things they feel they’re not good at, as it’s the only way they’ll improve. Our other rule is to “Have Fun.” With these ideas in mind, we hope to see all kids set down the proper path to learn Judo and have fun practicing it for the rest of their lives.
