At Moo Duk Kwan, great effort is put into the beginning karate classes for children. The training they receive in the first few months is the most important part of their training. Without a good foundation a student cannot succeed. TOTS/Tiny-tots instructors are highly trained in connecting with a student. When a child likes the instructor, they do better in class. This sets up a great beginning for a life-time of learning, not just in Martial arts, but for all areas of life. Tiny Tots Class program is specially designed for children 3-4 years old. It introduces students to martial arts with age appropriate lessons. This program is designed to teach your child how to focus, listen and follow directions, how to be respectful, have good manners and a positive attitude, all in a structured setting. We also teach them to develop their balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and agility. Children are introduced to the fundamentals of martial arts training consisting of blocking, punching, kicking, and coordination of movements. Tots class for ages 5-6 is similar to tiny tots except that it is geared to ages 5-6 who have more maturity and are better able to follow instructions.
