Bears TaeKwonDo Classes – Ages 5 – 8
Our Bears syllabus is specifically designed for children aged 5-8 years, and follows on from the Bears syllabus. Students can equally start this syllabus as their first class though. We continue to work on key skills such as co-ordination, balance, confidence and life skills. We run these classes separately from our family classes so the group get the attention they need.
Dangerous moves are not taught to the children, but lessons are no less fun and exciting. Children gain self-esteem, confidence, learn discipline and increase their martial art skills and knowledge. They also learn vital knowledge to help stop bullying at school and combat stress from exams.
Topics covered are:
- Fitness and Co-ordination
- Stretching & Strength
- Courtesy & Respect
- Self Control & Honesty
- Work Ethic
- Overcoming hurdles
- Kicking & Sparring drills
- Introduction to Sparring
The benefits of young children learning a martial art are important to everyday life. Within martial arts children develop bundles of self confidence and self-esteem which overflows into all areas of their lives, especially with regards to school work.
The syllabus consists of the following grades:
- Purple Tag
- Purple Belt
- Orange Tag
- Orange Belt
- Brown Tag
- Brown Belt
- Red Tag
