Samurai (2nd-5th Grade)
SELF-MASTERY: FOCUS, CONFIDENCE, RESILIENCE
It’s during the later elementary years that children often start experiencing academic and social pressure which can quickly lead to high levels of stress and insecurity if not addressed.
In our Samurai class, we will teach your child the art of self-mastery: razor sharp focus, resilience and the ability to bounce back, and kid-friendly techniques to combat stress and anxiety.
Throughout class, your child will be encouraged to find confidence from within instead of comparing themselves to others or looking to instructors or peers for approval and validation building their self-worth from the inside out.
HEALTHY COMMUNICATION & CONNECTION WITH OTHERS
Through partner work, the Samurai class gives your child a practical means to develop strong and healthy communication and interpersonal skills.
Your child will be encouraged to find the strength and clarity to express his/her needs while also learning how to be sensitive to the needs of their partner.
It’s a great opportunity to learn cooperation and teamwork.
SAMURAI MARTIAL ARTS CURRICULUM
At the Samurai level, the martial arts curriculum includes wrestling/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, blocking, punching, kicking, take-downs, and self-defense moves.
As your child progresses, they will be also be introduced to free sparring with a partner which gives your child an opportunity to practice all of their martial arts moves in a respectful environment wearing safety equipment.
