Children Learn Big Lessons in Little Ninjas!
When a child is in their early years and just starts to socialize it can be difficult to teach them how to interact with other children and adults. Not only do they want to do nothing but find something to entertain them but teaching them is rarely something they want to take part in. At Seung-Ni Martial Arts Academy of Traverse City there is a special Little Ninjas class designed specifically for 3-4 year old children that focuses on teaching them age appropriate skills and making sure they have fun while they learn!
Little Ninjas classes are catered especially for younger ones. Classes begin with running and small stretches and quickly move to interactive and fun activities! One game has the ninjas seeing how far they can launch their target with a single kick. Another helps them learn numbers when they have to strike numbered targets that are called out. Ninjas also have games that involve teamwork and patience such as relays where they have to wait for their partners to finish their turn. This mix of drills allows the ninjas to learn social skills as well as simple kicks and punches for class!
These Little Ninja sessions aren't solely focused on kick and punches; Seung-Ni Black Belt Instructors make sure to take time and discuss important lessons with the young students. One class the students may talk about using proper manners; saying thank you and waiting to speak until their parents aren't busy. Another class the Instructors may speak about personal space and respecting other people. These lesson's are perfect for any young child as they teach important aspects of social and home interaction but refrain from being dull so they don't lose interest.
