MINI DRAGONS - AGES 5-6
They will Make New Friends, Learn New Skills, and Develop Character
Martial arts is more than self-defense and fitness.
Kids have fun, while learning discipline, respect, focus, self-control, and resiliency.
The martial arts helps kids develop hand-eye coordination, healthy strategies to deal with stress and frustration.
Martial arts also instills good sportsmanship, which does more than just showing youth how to behave politely during and after a game.
Sportsmanship impacts how youth interact on and off the field. Good sportsmanship builds teamwork, character, and teaches respect, honor, discipline, kindness, inclusion, resilience, perseverance, and more.
We follow three rules of Self-defense:
1. Use our words to deconflict a situation
2. Avoid conflict by removing ourselves from the location
3. When rules 1 & 2 fail, be prepared to defend oneself through defense and counter-offense
We have a Motto for our Karate System:
"I Train in Martial Arts for Self-Defense, to Protect Myself, My Family, and My Friends, Only"
We follow the 7-5-3 Code
The 7-5-3 Code is an adaptation from the Bushido Code that allows for the enjoyment of a more balanced life, including physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
Each part of the 7-5-3 code has a distinct ethos (or characteristic way of being and doing), and they include:
7 Warrior Virtues
5 Keys to Health
3 States of Mind
