Kids Class info:(ages 5-13)
We believe in building a strong foundation for our younger students to build on as they progress over the years. Children new to martial arts and those with prior experience will find this class exciting and enjoyable! Using games, obstacle courses and teamwork, children learn the basic skills needed to advance in the martial arts.
In addition to the clear benefits of exercise and fitness, children will learn valuable life skills including confidence, respect, honor, perseverance, self-control and integrity.
The positive image our instructors project to our students, and the constant encouragement, support and interaction with the student and parent alike are very important in building the strong bonds we foster here at Academy of Fighting Arts.
Beginner instruction starts with learning basic stances, strikes, falling, punches, kicks and blocks and advances to valuable self-defense and eventually into sparring, Escrima (stick fighting) and breaking at the student's own pace.
Breaking is taught at the students own pace It is valuable in enhancing one's ability to self-defend, harness "Ki" (one's inner life energy), self-control and ability to focus.
Competing is a personal choice - we do attend several competitions throughout the year both in sparring and breaking and each student can choose whether or not they would like to compete.
