Lil’ Ninjas Ages 6-12
Enroll your child in our regular class membership starting at only $74.50 per month for the highest quality instruction in the county!
Over 25 years of development and constant “tweaking” has been poured into our lesson plans to make your child the best (martial arts) person or Budoka, that they can be!
The Lil’ Ninja program is based on not only being a martial arts instructor for over two decades but also on being a parent. Now, with former child students returning to us with children of their own, we have a lot of experience to draw on.
The 6-Year Factor
An interesting point of observation is the 6-Year factor. The 6-Year factor is a term that pertains to a child’s life as seen in more or less 6-year increments. (based on our experience). The first six years or so of a child’s life covers the basics. From an infant to potty training to getting dressed, then basic socialization and the forming of friendships.
The next six years (6 to 12) are crucial in developing a strong sense of values, responsibility and most importantly the ability to “think for yourself.” We view this particular stage to be most important, in that this is your chance as a parent to instill real common sense. You see, this current stage will set the table for the next stage –the Teenage Stage! This is where the kids traditionally “rebel” or, as we like to put it – test out the theories and lessons from the previous stage. This is where they will be placed in precarious situations without you there to guide them. This is why it is imperative that a good foundation is laid in place … well before someone offers them drugs or dares them to do something they may later regret! It’s important to do this now while you still have their ear!
As you may have guessed, the teenage stage of 13 to 18 is basically a constant juggle between being cool and doing what’s right. Again, it’s up to us to instill a good moral compass in our children before they are in this position. This last stage (while dependant on the prior stage) is what will determine the kind of adult they will become.
” … we are parents too. And we are here to assist you …”
So parents, no pressure here … right? Hey, we are parents too. And we are here to assist you in instilling this moral compass … and we have the secret weapons to do it.
Firstly, we know Karate. Secondly, we’re not you. Don’t you hate it when someone else tells your child something that you’ve been saying forever, but this time they actually listen? Well, we will gladly be that person to help, as long as the lesson gets through that’s the important thing! There are many tools that we have developed over the years, but these tools are proprietary, so we’ll save them for the students in class.
Below are a few of benefits your child will receive from our program:
- Children will learn what self-control really means and how to develop it, actually making it easier to parent your child and to be a child!
- Children learn what makes a good person good and why it’s important to their success as a martial artist and a citizen.
- Students must maintain their grades and proper attitude in school in order to promote to the next color belt, thereby reinforcing the importance of their education!
- Our goal-setting belt rank system is an integral part your child’s success, with it they will learn to achieve whatever they set their sights on!
- Real-world drills that teach your child what to look for to avoid abduction and how to fight free from an adult!
