6 to 9 year olds

kids martial arts in basingstokeYoung Legends is the name given to our martial arts students aged between 6 and 9. Young Legend’s have their own special classes to attend designed to teach all they need to know about Martial Arts and to set them on the road to becoming a Black Belt. In these classes we help to develop a broad base of fundamental skills in kickboxing, close  range sparring, throwing and groundwork.

Being a Young Legend is about far more than just turning up at your classes each week. It’s about learning to have a ‘black belt attitude’, even from your very first lesson. It’s all about trying as hard as you can to be the best you can be, not just at your martial arts moves but also in your behaviour and attitude in your Martial Arts class, at home and at school.

Children between 6 and 9 years old are much more socially adept than their younger siblings and have much better motor skills and control. However most of them are not quite ready to study at the same level as the 10-15 year olds. We will work with them to help them develop physically, emotionally and socially with their peers and friends.

In this age group your child will learn how to fine tune the performance of their motor skills whilst gaining an excellent detailed understanding of their Martial Arts movements at a deeper technical level.

The refinements to their practise will now focus on teaching and improving their more advanced skills focusing on:-

  • Agility
  • Technique
  • Courage
  • Intensity
  • Flexibility
  • Perseverance
  • Speed
  • Concentration
  • Stamina
  • Self Confidence

We work with our Young Legends to help them with anti bullying and self protection skills  both physical and emotional.  In every class we work with them to foster good manners, correct etiquette, team working and a strong work ethic with the premise that their hard work will end in good results for them.

Make the right choice for your child. Get them involved in a sport which will keep them active and safe for life.
