KIDS MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES
WHAT WE DO DURING EACH KIDS MARTIAL ARTS CLASS
Our Little Dragons class (for ages 3 to 6) lasts 45 minutes and our Junior Dragons (ages 7-11) & Youth Elite (12+) Kids Martial Arts classes last 60 minutes.
Our focus is on encouragement during classes with achievement being assessed through participation in the class, not on individual successes.
Each class starts with a group warm-up of light exercise and stretching. We then focus on aerobic fitness drills, co-ordination drills, attack & defensive drills and paired pad drills. For our Little Dragons classes we encourage parents to participate during lessons.
All techniques and drills are taught using different types of safety pads and training aids. Appropriate safety equipment is used for all our younger students.
THE BENEFITS OF SPORT
Sport plays a positive role in a child’s development from physical fitness through to academic performance. At Gosport Martial Arts we have developed our kids martial arts classes to be fun, positive & safe. Our classes will help to develop
A positive attitude towards fitness, health & exercise.
Social skills & friendships building.
Higher grades, expectations, and attainment.
Improved personal confidence and self-esteem.
Greater connections with school.
Support from adults.
Stronger peer relationships.
Greater family attachment and more frequent interactions with parents.
More restraint in avoiding risky behaviour.
We all want the best for our kids and getting them involved in a sport of any type will help them develop not just a positive view of health and exercise, but a positive outlook on life.
