Frequently Asked questions
Who is teaching my kid?
My child is almost 7, can we just start in the Tigers Program?
Most six year olds benefit from learning the fundamental skills and basic expectations in Little Monkeys before they jump into Tigers training, even if it’s just for a few months. We want your child to feel confident and prepared, both physically and mentally as they continue along their training path. As you know, all children are unique and develop differently, so we will use Little Monkeys to evaluate your kiddo and promise we won’t hold them back if we feel they are ready!
Do I have to sign an annual contract?
No! We believe simpler is better! The world is complicated enough without us making it more so. Our memberships are month-to-month and easy to cancel or put on hold.
Why aren't there more classes?
You are looking for the best for your child. Not just an “activity” to keep them busy. We’re pretty sure you won’t find another martial arts school in the Portland metro area where the head instructors teach the youngest students. At Naga, Jeff and Silvia are committed to investing their time, wisdom and energy in your child. This is a significant first step of an amazing journey for your Little Monkey and he or she deserves the most experienced instructors.
That said, in answer to your question, Saturday mornings are one of the few times Silvia and Jeff can teach together that is convenient for families as well. Besides, there will be lots more opportunities to train as your kiddo develops. Enjoy the simplicity of this moment! We do! Little Monkeys is one of our favorite classes to teach. You’ll see why when you come for your first free class!
