Basic SKILLZ Program! Basic SKILLZ (Ages 5 – 6 Years Old)
Five and six-year-olds are the most enthusiastic students. They love creativity and problem-solving, which makes them ideal students in Martial Arts. The problem we discovered is they are so progressive in the following tasks, some teachers tend to treat them like their older peers. This is a problem because they still do not have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children ages 7 and up. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their social and intellectual curiosity while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing basic skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be a very successful day!
Here’s an overview of the stages of development of children ages 5 and 6:
- Physically– they typically do not know how to apply their muscles so they fall often when their body is in constant motion. Also, they have a basic foundation for leg, arm, core, and abdominal development, but they still lack a lot of strength.
- Intellectually– they typically have a hard time retaining beyond three commands. They also have a hard time distinguishing between their left and right
- Emotionally – they typically focus on things that make them happy. They also have slow brakes when they are excited.
- Socially– they love to play with others but are typically very competitive.
By understanding the stages of development of 5 and 6-year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Basic SKILLZ Program:
As you can see we take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use basic elements of traditional Martial Arts curriculums to build skills that are appropriate for 5 and 6-year olds. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging. The best part is the Basic SKILLZ program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life!
