As part of Phoenix Academy of MMA we present Lil' Dragons:
We are one of only few Martial Arts schools in Lancashire licensed to teach children of 3 years of age.
This ground breaking, revolutionary program focuses on improving pre-school children’s listening and motor skills, building confidence, self esteem, concentration, discipline and coordination.
Give your child the best possible start in life: this program is specially designed for 3 to 7 year olds, with the emphasis on having fun, learning life skills and self-defense through Martial Arts.
Although 3-7 year olds will not be able to master the intricacies of Karate (but we teach basics - stances, strikes, kicks and sets) or become over night Bruce Lee’s, martial arts is an excellent activity for them. Experts that have studied child development say that these are the most crucial years of development. Children at this age have short attention spans, so classes run for 45 minutes and each activity lasts 3-5 minutes.
The Lil’ Dragons curriculum delivers important safety skills through martial arts training and intelligent games in such a way that our lil’ dragons enjoy our classes so much they complain when it’s time to go home. We cover safety topics that include, but are not limited to:
Basic First Aid
The Lil’ Dragons program focuses on the eight ‘Core Life Skills’ re-enforcing your child’s development at school and at home, mixed with fun (martial arts) and games which makes them develop social skills. Lil’ Dragons Classes help burn your children’s energy in a positive way. The program builds confidence through positive re-enforcement. Lil’ Dragons are always encouraged and rewarded for their efforts. Lil’ Dragons are taught how to accomplish what once seemed impossible, gaining confidence from that which carries over to home and school life.
Our outstanding award and advancement system is second to none in achieving personal results with a three monthly belt progression, monthly stripe testing, Life & safety skills badges, and class-by-class stickers.
