We teach them to be responsible with their skills and be aware of their growing strength. In this age group, it is CONFIDENCE and RESPONSIBILITY that we want to develop and nurture.
This is also a time when training in preparation for the demands and challenges of secondary schooling is important.
This age group faces many physical, emotional, social and intellectual challenges. With positive, active development your child will face the transition to their teen years with an enthusiastic outlook.
Important to this age group is :
- Dealing with conflict by learning how to resolve it in a non-violent way
- Avoid being a victim of bullying
Classes are designed to develop focus, independence and self reliance.
Benefits of training include physical stress relief and a clear, focused mind. We can help bring out the best your child’s personality and to shape him or her into a leader and a dreamer.
We like to see students have a strong sense of self. Learning to dream and believe that dream can become a reality through commitment and physical determination.
