The Focus of our Little Ninja Program is to introduce the younger child to karate with basic skills and
 a whole lot of fun and action.  The greater goals here are to develop listening skills, distraction control,
 following directions and staying on task in a high energy, fun and developmental way.  This program
 will help your child develop themselves physically, mentally and socially so they can participate in our
 Young Samurai Karate Program.  4-5 Yrs Old
 This Karate Program Focuses on developing your child’s gross and fine motor skills, memory, and
 attention, fitness, agility and social skills.  Your child will also learn age appropriate self-defense, self-
 respect and the respect of others while building their confidence in a safe, stimulating and fun filled
 class setting.  6-7 Yrs Old
 Our Youth Karate Program helps our students increase their self-esteem, teaches them to work
 towards the goals they set and they learn how to respect themselves and others. The children learn in
 a safe, supervised environment and our trained instructors keep the kids motivated and wanting more
 while they’re learning self-defense techniques and interpersonal communication skills that will last a
 lifetime.  The children in our program get better grades, make more friends, and work towards their
 black belts giving them more confidence in all they do.
