Foundations in Martial Arts for 4-6 year olds
Your child is welcomed onto the mat and into an engaging journey through the Indonesian jungle! They will learn essential elements of this holistic martial art, and self-defense skills that last a lifetime. Your Little Monkey will be guided, pushed, nudged, and challenged along a path to self-discovery and empowerment. As a parent, you will have new allies and a supportive community to walk alongside you in what can easily be considered the most important journey of your lifetime. Raising a whole, healthy and happy human being!
Your child will develop basic skills they need in order to stay safe when they step out from under your protective wings.
