Early Skillz (Ages 3 to 4 years old)
The Little Ninjas Early Skillz Program focuses on improving young children’s basic motor and listening skills. The Early Skillz program will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. They will become better students at school, better listeners at home, and more ambitious towards the future. In the Little Ninjas Early Skillz classes, the child will be exposed to positive social interaction. They will learn how to work with others and follow directions from their instructors.
Basic Skillz (Ages 5 to 6 years old)
Our Basic Skillz program is built around our core values of Effort, Etiquette, Character, Sincerity, and Self-Control. The class provides a safe, fun and positive environment for kids to express themselves and build confidence through the martial art of American Kenpo Karate. With the use of tools like our Job Checklist (which track the completion of tasks such as cleaning up their room, helping out at home, and completing homework) students take pride in their work and achievements both in and out of the dojo. The focus for this age group is learning the basics of karate, self-defense and fostering a positive attitude.
Core Skillz (Ages 7 to 9 years old)
In our Core Skillz program students learn to integrate the mind-body-spirit connection into their daily lives through increased focus on technique and discipline in the martial art of American Kenpo Karate. Students continue to be required to complete Job Checklist (which track completion of tasks such as cleaning up their room, helping out at home, and completing homework), and they are introduced to goal setting and leadership development.
(Ages 10 to 18 years old)
Leadership, teamwork, discipline, and personal responsibility are the cornerstones of the Teen program. Students support one another to reach their goals and create a positive community. We hold each other accountable for what we say we are going to do. Self-respect is instilled while learning practical techniques for self-defense and conflict resolution.
(18+ years old)
Karate, Cardio Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Krav Maga are open to all adults or teens with parental consent. See Disciplines for detailed descriptions. Goal setting, instilling our core values, personal responsibility, and making a difference are focused on at the adult level. Students are encouraged to participate in Community Volunteer Programs on a regular basis.
EFFORT: I strive to make every movement, moment, action and thought count.
ETIQUETTE: I treat everyone with respect and politeness. Not because they are nice, because I am nice.
CHARACTER: I choose to do the right thing, even when no one is looking. I am committed to keeping my word to myself and others.
SINCERITY: When I am true to myself and others I will achieve greatness.
SELF-CONTROL: I may not be able to control what happens to me, however I will control my attitude towards what happens. And in doing so I will master change instead of allowing it to master me.
