JUNIOR PROGRAM (6-12 yrs)

The junior program a dynamic  balance of physical drills and skills coupled with the appropriate emphasis on required curriculum to allow children that attend on a consistent basis and advance to the next level. If your child has initially begun training as a tot eventually the junior program will be the best setting to continue future training.

The students learn kicking techniques,  patterns and self-defense manoeuvres for general scenarios. Of course they are also are also exposed to the sport side through the vigorous exercise as well as depending on the level a proportionate amount of learning the sport aspect by sparring.

Sparring is geared to enhance timing, leverage increased reaction but should  be thought of as sport over a fighting technique. We believe fully in using the martial arts for self-defence only, never to be used on the schoolyard or street to harm others. The competitive nature of the sport is open to students that wish to persue it through tournaments, which can be discussed with instructors on how to further training and direct them appropriately.
