Whilst children will learn some of the techniques of Taekwon-Do such as punches, blocks and kicks, the emphasis of the lessons are to have fun and develop the underpinning ‘life’ skills of :
- Focus / concentration
- Teamwork / leadership
- Emergency skills / Stranger danger
The programme is taught in a happy and controlled environment, and is designed to help the personal development of the child in five key areas:
- Self esteem
- Channelling aggression
- Self protection.
The support of parents / carers is important to all children, especially for the Little Dragons age group. Parents / carers stay for the Little Dragons class and are encouraged to work with the Instructor and provide feedback (both positive and negative) so good work can be rewarded and other areas can be addressed if appropriate.
Little Dragons are rewarded every step of the way with positive teaching, awards and mini gradings. Little Dragons become very proud of their own achievements – which means you will be to.
