We have been delivering our Dragon’s martial arts programme to children between the ages of 3-6 since 2008. Since our first class, the programme has been improved year on year. It provides a great introduction to martial arts and structured physical exercise for young children
Our custom syllabus covers essential key skills needed for pre school children while introducing them to multi skills and basic martial arts techniques. Through studying sports coaching (up to Masters Degree level) and over twenty years of martial arts coaching experience, we understand that the needs of a young child are totally different to that of an adult. Our programme will help your child learn how to walk before they can run......... jump, hop, kick etc.
Our Dragons classes are often the first structured play our new students have participated in. In this programme we value the development of social skills as highly as physical skills. From the simple hidden skills such as take turns during activities or not speaking while the instructor is talking, to balancing confidence and discipline. We carefully plan all aspects of the classes we deliver to ensure that we are making the most of the time we have with each student.
To give our young students the attention they require, we like to keep our Warrior Factory Dragons classes relatively small. For the 3-4 year olds we like a 6-1 student to instructor ratio while we use a 7-1 ratio for the 5-6 year old Dragons. All our Dragons classes are lead by one fully qualified instructor and at least one assistant instructor. All lead and assistant instructors hold a black belt or above and registered with the Taekwondo or Ju Jitsu governing body. All lead instructors are DBS checked and carry instructor indemnity insurance.
