This class will focus on auditory and verbal skills, self-esteem, enthusiasm, cooperation, positive attitude, hand-eye coordination, motor skills, muscular development, leadership skills, peer interaction, mental/body awareness, and self-defense. Class instruction is always based on positive reinforcement to prepare children for the next level in their training.
With understanding the development of 5-6 year olds, we incorporate the following in our organized classes:

Here the student will learn the concepts and applications of self defense, self confidence, discipline, respect, and self-mastery.
