Youth Program

Youth and Kid's Programs

We do not rise to the level of our expectations.

We fall to the level of our training.

--Archilochus, Greek Soldier, 650 BC

Kid's Aiki Ninjutsu

 

Our kid’s self-defense program is offered to children from 4 to 6 years old. This program will teach your child self-discipline and confidence as well as self-respect and respect for others. The program is designed to help your child earn a youth black belt in the martial art of Aiki Ninjutsu.

 

The skills your child will learn include:

 

Self-defense

How to deal with bullies

Balance and body control exercises

How to roll without causing injury

The importance of understanding the concept of “Stranger Danger”

How to deal with frustration

The importance of good sportsmanship

 

Our kid's classes include several confidence and skill building exercises using a positive reinforcement approach to learning. We try to end each class with a game that uses the skills learned in that day’s class. The games help reinforce the day’s lesson as well as teach good sportsmanship and the importance of supporting friends and classmates in their efforts. 

 

Youth To Shin Do

Our Youth To Shin Do classes are offered to kid's from 7 to 13 years old. The youth program teaches the same techniques and self-defense strategies taught in our adult To Shin Do classes and will prepare your child to earn a youth black belt in the martial art of To Shin Do.

Our youth classes provide reality-based training and a positive reinforcement approach to learning. We try to end each class with a game that uses the skills learned in that day’s class. The games help reinforce the day’s lesson as well as teach good sportsmanship and the importance of supporting friends and classmates in their efforts.

See what some parents have to say about our training.

"I recently enrolled my child into class and am very impressed.       Mr. Jackson is so patient and positive with the kids, and it's      evident in his actions and manners how much he loves teaching this      art and sharing his knowledge and expertise.  From my child's      perspective 'it's really a lot of fun!'   However from the parent      perspective, I can appreciate all of the self confidence and      valuable life skills that my child is gaining, all while having so      much fun!"   ~Christy Duffy
