Power Ninja (Kinder & 1st Grades, ages 5-7)
SELF-REGULATION & SELF-CONFIDENCE
In our Kindergarten and 1st Grade Power Ninja Class, your child will learn the art of self-regulation.
Your child will not only learn how to observe and monitor what we call the 3Bs (Body, Breath and Brain), but will learn how to make adjustments to the 3 Bs to come back to a place of calm and focus.
Your child will also learn about being like a River, a Life Ki-do term which means you are putting your heart into what you’re doing and giving it your all!
Instead of a superficial confidence based on looking to others for validation and self-worth, your child will develop a deep and lasting self-confidence based on their own effort and being the best they can be.
Throughout our Power Ninja classes we provide opportunities to work with a partner. Partner work offers a very tangible and practical way to develop healthy social skills. We will teach your child to clearly communicate their needs as well as to honor and be sensitive to the needs of others.
This is a wonderful way to develop self-respect and respect for others and will undoubtedly have tremendous value for your child’s friendships and relationships today and into the future.
POWER NINJA MARTIAL ARTS CURRICULUM
The age appropriate and always really fun martial arts curriculum at this age includes wrestling/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, blocking, punching, kicking, take-downs, and self-defense moves.
We also like to focus on learning how to safely fall and roll as more children are likely to be hurt from a fall than from getting into a fight.
Your child will also learn freestyle martial arts forms (a sequenced pattern of moves.) Forms are a great medium to develop focus, self-regulation, and body-breath-brain connection.
Check out what Power Ninja parents have to say:
“The Life Ki-do program is an ideal extra-curricular enrichment choice for parents looking to grow the ‘whole’ child. Patient, compassionate, stimulating instruction & availability of skill-level based learning make this place an amazing value and natural fit for kiddos!”
“We LOVE Life Ki-do. Shepherd has learned a lot, especially with regards to monitoring his own intense feelings of anger and frustration and finding good, constructive outlets for those feelings rather than hurting others.” – Laura
