Children aged 6 - 12
Children who like to do new and exciting things
Children who don't like to be afraid and who need to grow up with self confidence
Children who deserve more from a sports programme than sitting on a bench
Children who are athletic, energetic, awkward or shy, bold, nice or maybe even a little wild once in a while
...Probably a lot of children just like yours!
At Leadership Martial Arts, we believe that every child is a winner and that every child is special!
Every student wins with our junior programme. Every student can be a winner instead of a bench sitter, because our martial art allows children to reach for their own potential rather than directly competing against others.
The junior system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. Our basic building blocks for the junior system are monthly themes, including the following:
In addition to monthly themes, children are rewarded with special "stripes" for their belt. During the period between each graduation all students are subject to a continual assessment. For junior students this is symbolised by a stripe system. As each student successfully completes one of the sections a stripe is awarded. Once all four stripes are collected a student will be allowed to graduate. For adults the same system applies but the stripes are not awarded. A graduation is held every three months.
All of our junior students are taught a mixture of traditional taekwondo and freestyle Martial Arts. This unique mixture maximises the development of Self Control whilst allowing the free flow of creativity to develop Confidence and Physical Fitness.
This is not a competition. This is about your child being the best they can possibly be at this point in their life, regardless of any physical, mental or emotional situations.
