Introducing the Little Dragons Program for Ages 4 through 6!
50 min class on Tuesdays, Thursdays at 4pm, & Saturdays at 9am
We do not feel that it is necessary to overwhelm this age with daily classes. We find that two-three classes a week gives the ideal time for skill building, retention and development.
Four, five and six year olds are the most enthusiastic students, yet they also tend to have a hard time focusing. They love creativity and problem solving, which makes them amazing students and perfect candidates for the Little Dragons program. The problem we discovered most with this age group is that they are so progressive in following tasks that some academies group this age with older students. This is a problem because they still do not have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children ages 7 and up, plus they do not have the same attention span. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development and adapts to their social and intellectual needs (and curiosities). At the same time AMAA Little Dragons will be working to progressively build skills that set your Little Dragon up for success. With that said, below is a complete structure of our 4-6 little dragons program.
The Little Dragons program is designed to establish a good foundation for a continued education in the martial arts, as well as helping to shape children into healthy, positively minded young people. The classes are energetic with fast paced activities designed to keep children interested and engaged throughout the entire class..
The program uses games, teamwork drills, and instructors lead activities to introduce self-defense techniques and develop coordination, agility, mobility and flexibility. Children are required to work with partners and in teams toward common goals, teaching them how to share and act responsibly within a group. Students are also introduced to some of the basic value and principals of the martial arts such as respect, responsibility, and self-discipline. We give your child the life skills necessary to succeed (discipline, goal-setting, and leadership).
Serving NYC since 1996, our instructors are trained to deliver our curriculum in a fun and positive manner, using a variety of approaches to accommodate different learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic).
