Does your 3-4 year-old struggle with self-control?
Parenting can feel like a marathon and it is easy to feel frustrated trying to get young children to follow directions, obey rules, do specific tasks, or even sit still. That’s where we can help!
The Little Leaders “Parent & Me” program is designed specifically for the needs of young children ages 3 and 4. In these crucial developmental years, we’ll concentrate on building character, learning respect for people and things, and developing focus. The key to our classes is teaching them these basic life skills through entertaining martial arts lessons. Our curriculum will focus on self-defense and skill basics providing opportunities to improve motor control and coordination while burning off a good bit of energy!
Because this is a “Parent & Me” class, your parental expectations are reinforced each class as you participate on the mat with your child. You’ll help guide them and have the opportunity to give your child plenty of positive reinforcement for a job well done. Although your child with look sharp and picture perfect in their karate uniform and belt, parents are not expected to do the same.
Little Leaders is an individualized program and students will progress as their own pace. Successful completion of Little Leaders is a perfect entry into our traditional Black Belt program where we focus on essential higher-level life skills and martial arts training. Because our Little Leaders will work so hard, they will skip their white belt upon entry and immediately earn their yellow belt.
With calm and consistent guidance, your child can learn basic martial arts – and acceptable martial arts school behavior – and have fun, too! See you on the mat!
