Can little kids really learn martial arts?
Question: What do you teach 3-4 year old kids?
Answer: At our Las Vegas school, classes for your child will be AGE SPECIFIC. We understand that younger students have a shorter attention span. The key to instructing your child at this young age is breaking the classes into smaller sections. So a 40 minute class is actual 4 ten minute classes strung together. Teaching in this way ensures that classes are fun and will hold the interest of a 3 year old. We use a technique of teaching in which we disguise repetition. What that means is that there are many ways of practicing the same thing. The blocks and punches practiced in the air during warm up can also be practiced on the heavy bag during the second section of class. The same movements can be practiced against a live opponent during the obstacle course. This technique allows your child to grasp every component of class. Their confidence increases each time something new is learned. Our school's instruction can develop you child's hand-eye coordination, balance, reaction, and motor skills. Our school's philosophy in instructing your child is that praise, encouragement, and positive reinforcement are the only things that really work.
