Dragon Kung Fu
This program is for ages 7-12. Students gain confidence, physical prowess, and respect for themselves, other individuals and their surroundings, in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Kids learn differently than adults and our training reflects that. The material is the same as the adult prgram it is just taught in a kid appropriate manner: more training-specific games, more levels to encourage advancement (i.e. 1st white to 2nd white to 1st yellow as opposed to white to yellow in the adult program) and more giggling.
In a fun playful environment they learn respect for adults and their peers. The students are encouraged to support their fellow students rather than be in competition with them, no "us against them" mentality.
With a variety of material everyone has a chance to discover their strengths. Students acchieving brown belt rank are allowed to teach lower belts which fosters peer to peer communication. It also gives the brown belt an opportunity for a leadership role.
Parents are always welcome to observe the kid’s classes or jump in for some exercise. Parents who wish to join the Dragons class with testing and belt advancement can join in for fifty percent of the normal children's membership fee.
In our Dragons program we always work hard but we also have a lot of fun learning and growing together!
