  • Description - Self-Care Arts

    Junior Dragon Martial Arts (Junior Dragons) - This course is designed for children, ages 5-12, of all abilities. Due to the large range of physical and mental capabilities of these ages, Master Kelly takes a flexible abpproach to skill development. The Junior Dragon Martial Arts course features a variety of fun drills to increase coordination and to learn to follow specific instructions. The drills consist of blocks, kicks, rolls, and balance exercises. The environment fosters respect, determination, teamwork, and fun. The Junior Dragon core curriculum is the same for all students, with individual exercises tailored to each student's rank and ability. All students are provided with study guides showing detailed requirements for the next rank and giving parents an objective yardstick for their child's progress. The Junior Dragon course is a mixed martial arts program. Master Kelly draws on his broad-based knowledge of Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Jujitsu, Aikido, and Kung Fu. Your child will learn basic blocking and kicking skills, as well as techniques for falling safely. Then, your child will learn to escape various types of grabbing attacks, to defend him- or herself while on the ground, and eventually, to throw an attacker. Long-term students of the Junior Dragon program develop the ability to defend themselves in a variety of real-life situations. They develop coordination and self-mastery, and they build real confidence and self-esteem. The Junior Dragon program also instills fundamental training principles of cooperation and mutual respect.
