LITTLE CHAMPIONS


Little Champions is our brilliant innovative programme for young people aged 3-5 years.  Immensely popular with parents and students alike, it combines fun and laughter with drills and skills that are suited to your child's age group. we enforce discipline and respect by telling all students what we 'expect' from them from the offset and following this with our ongoing reinforcement scheme.

Little Champions is exclusive to Modern Martial Arts and was designed from the ground up by an Education Professional.

This programme is designed to allow your child to learn real life skills and realistic self defence for their smaller size. It will take them through to their first full belt in their chosen style and give them the confidence and knowledge they need to easily make the transition into a junior class.

​Curriculum Aim
 
The aim of the ‘Little Champions’ classes are to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding of young children from 3 to 5 years in the martial arts. Children will learn the key features and introductory movements of the martial arts, whilst developing themselves as well disciplined, independent young people with the ability to take responsibility for their actions, lead by example and become positive role models both in class and the wider community. Students will increase their fitness levels and release pent up energy in a safe and controlled environment where all levels of success will be regularly acknowledged and rewarded. Students will understand and demonstrate self-defence and personal safety in a variety of different contexts. Students will work with instructors and parents when assessing their learning so they are clear about what they have achieved and what their next steps are. Students will also have regular opportunities to collect ‘Achievements’ that will enhance their training.

On completion of the Little Champions Programme children can choose to either graduate into the Junior Karate or Junior Kickboxing Programmes.
