Early Skillz (Ages 3 & 4 Year Old)
Three to four-year-olds love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and a strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. The problem we discovered is that many children this age have a hard time with structure in a group environment like what is commonly found in most Martial Arts schools. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said, a structured program introducing early skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
Here’s an overview of the stages of development of children ages 3 and 4:
- Physically– they typically have low tone and poor hand-eye-coordination
- Intellectually– they typically have a limited vocabulary therefore learning is normally limited to visual and kinesthetic activities
- Emotionally– they typically have strong preferences and fears therefore they will normally act out of bounds when their emotions get out of control.
- Socially– they are typically very self-centered. Also, due to their limited vocabulary, their common form of communication is mainly physical
By understanding the stages of development of 3 and 4-year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Early SKILLZ Program:
As you can see we take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use early elements of traditional Martial Arts curriculums to build skills that are appropriate for 3 and 4-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 Early SKILLZ program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life!
