Yi’s Martial Arts Fitness Academy is a Black Belt Success System School. It is our goal to develop our students into black belts and beyond. More importantly though, for parents of kids, we focus on helping parents instill the successful life skills and values inherent in the martial arts. These include confidence, perseverance, respect, courtesy, integrity, honesty, self-control and indomitable spirit. The Lil’ Dragons program was designed specifically for children ages 4-6 years old. In the Lil’ Dragons Program, your child will learn and grow in a process that accommodates their skills and abilities.
This program will prepare your child for our Junior Martial Arts Program. In addition to learning 8 Valuable Traits like Focus, Teamwork, Control, Balance, Memory, Discipline, Fitness and Coordination, children will learn the basic Martial Arts skills that will enhance their future Martial Arts training. This training will also improve their abilities in sports and other activities, much more so than children that do not participate in this type of program.
Martial Arts will allow your child the added benefit of self-confidence, self-esteem and give them an outlet to channel their energy. Basic mental and physical self-defense is also addressed so you can have the confidence knowing that your child will know what to do if approached by a stranger as well as if he/she is being bullied on the playground.
Your child will feel comfortable and more capable of achieving excellence. They are at an age where the more special they feel, the harder they will try. We believe the time between the ages of 4 and 6 are the MOST IMPORTANT and CRITICAL years of a child’s development. Our LIL’ DRAGONS program will enhance POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT in a FUN, SAFE and MOTIVATING WAY.
This program’s skill requirements are composed of not only PHYSICAL but MENTAL benefits GUARANTEED to make your child PHYSICALLY STRONGER and MENTALLY PREPARED. Our motto is… LIL” DRAGONS TODAY, LEADERS TOMORROW!
