WHAT IS MINI DRAGONS KUNG FU?

Mini Dragons Kung Fu is a cutting-edge children’s Martial Arts class designed to give four and five year olds the very best start in life!

By this age, your child will already have developed their own amazing personality already and are making great progress in developing their physical coordination and spatial awareness. They are now becoming more confident in their own abilities and have developed physical and social skills.

Our after-school club in Rochford will help them to explore their physical literacy and can really help them to blossom, whilst they learn new skills, both physical and emotional.

In each class, we work on a specific theme with the children to help them to enhance their physical attributes, and social and life skills. We have specific topics that we learn together and help them understand in a context that they will appreciate and enjoy.

The Mini Dragons Martial Arts program has already prepared hundreds of children just like yours to have the very best possible start in this amazing next stage of life!

The best decision you will make for your child!!

WHAT WILL YOUR CHILD LEARN IN MARTIAL ARTS?

The emphasis is less on having 100% technically correct movements, but rather on getting the techniques generally right and having fun. At this age children are still developing physical co-ordination and spatial awareness, so fine-tuning is impractical.

The children in this after-school club program do not do any sparring with each other, but occasionally do get to practice with the coaches.

We do have a wide range of age-appropriate equipment that is regularly used in classes. When the children move to our older Martial Arts classes, then they are taught to safely spar.

No matter what sport or activity your child does in the future, the skills learned as a Little Tiger will help them to succeed. Just watch any children’s games or activities and the ones who have mastered these skills are the ones that shine and stand out.

Because we split our Martial Arts curriculums for children by age and also experience, your child will train with other children of their own age group, and not have to be limited or overwhelmed by older children.

Each class will accommodate every student’s skills and abilities in a way that is not overly demanding or intimidating.

That means more age-specific instruction with better results.

This program is very much focused on early years and reception years education and moving up to key stage 1 (KS1) –
