Kids Program in San Fransico, California
The Gorillas program is designed for kids (ages 5-6) that focuses on self-esteem and dives deeper into stranger and situational awareness reflexes. Forms are more emphasized in the classes as well as sharpening techniques in punching, kicking, and blocking. While this program does focus more on the technical aspect of martial arts, it also teaches character building tools such as sharp thinking, leadership skills, and goal setting. While developing martial arts skills is an important part of this program, we also recognize the importance of developing the personal skills as well. In addition, students are taught about nutrition and the benefits of taking care of their bodies.
The Silverbacks class is designed for older kids (ages 7 and up) that is a 45-minute structured program. In this program, classes are based on building real skills through “FUN-damental” drills. Coordination, balance, and motor skills are carefully cultivated and nurtured by caring instructors. The skills your child will develop in this program will enhance all aspects of their development – socially, academically and athletically. In this program, students are also taught the deeper meaning behind martial arts and the lifelong values it can have. This program builds the foundation for meeting the requirements of Black Belt in the Olympic sport and the martial art of Taekwondo.
