Lion's Pride Martial Arts SKILLZ For Kids Program
Lion Cubs – Early SKILLZ
For our youngest ninjas, we focus on physical skills that all kids need to develop. In addition to kicking, punching, and blocking, students build coordination, balance, and core strength. Through martial arts drills and games, your child will also develop listening skills, respect for others, and self-control.
Lesson #1? Having fun. At Lion’s Pride Martial Arts, we believe that the secret to success in Martial Arts is a love for the sport before anything else. When students have a genuine passion for martial arts, they practice and perform with a level of vigor, enthusiasm, and confidence that can’t be taught. When it comes to our pre-school to kindergartner-aged students, fostering that passion is our top priority.
Lion Kids – Basic SKILLZ
Basic SKILLZ focuses on essential martial arts techniques and coaches students to become their best selves. While learning to strike, kick, and block, students grow their memory, discipline, leadership, fitness, and control. With high-energy and exciting drills, these ninjas learn to handle bullies and other challenges.
With the overwhelming presence of social and mass media, it’s harder than ever for young people to achieve confidence. That’s why Lion’s Pride Martial Arts is so passionate about cultivating the self-esteem of each one of our students. The martial arts provide children with impressive new skills, an outlet for self-expression, increased physical fitness, and self-defense training. Lion’s Pride Martial Arts has used our martial arts instruction to change the lives of thousands of students, and we want your child to be next.
Mountain Lions – Core SKILLZ
CORE SKILLZ teaches fundamental skills that 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders most need to be successful. While learning forms, practicing sparring combos, and refining their technique, our Mountain Lion students improve their agility, concentration, and perseverance.
While you may be learning fancy new techniques, that doesn’t mean you’ll be getting away from the basics any time soon. In fact, our advanced students probably spend more time perfecting those seemingly “simple” moves more than anyone else at Lion’s Pride Martial Arts. Our school believes that as students advance in ability, they must constantly strengthen their foundational skills.
Ten to fourteen-year-olds can excel in most physical challenges, but they are so focused on what is socially acceptable that they struggle to stay emotionally driven. The Extreme SKILLZ program uses martial arts to train students in building precision, versatility, momentum, and trusting their instincts, which encourages healthy social and emotional development.
From the very first class, respect is an integral part of what we do. While students enjoy learning more advanced martial arts skills, they are also learning how to set goals and work hard to achieve them, while enjoying healthy friendships with new friends.
