Early SKILLZ Program - Ages 3 & 4

Introducing the Internationally-Acclaimed Early SKILLZ Program!

Three to four year olds love physical activity and anything
involving play. They have a rich imagination and strong desire to
be less dependent on their usual caregivers. The problem we discovered is that many children this
age have a hard time with structure in a group environment like what is commonly found in most
Martial Arts schools. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets
their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building
skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing early skill-based
training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.








Basic SKILLZ Program - Ages 5 & 6

Introducing the Internationally-Acclaimed Basic SKILLZ Program!

Five and six-year olds are the most enthusiastic students. They
love creativity and problem solving, which makes them ideal
students in the Martial Arts. The problem we discovered is they are so progressive in following tasks
some teachers tend to treat them like their older peers. This is a problem because they still do not
have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children ages 7 and up. The solution we found is to
provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts
to their social and intellectual curiosity while at the same time building skills that set them up for
success. With that said a structured program introducing basic skill-based training in Martial Arts has
proven to be very successful.











Core SKILLZ Program - Ages 7 to 9

Introducing the Internationally-Acclaimed Core SKILLZ Program!

Seven to nine-year olds are what most people consider
"the golden age." They are proficient in their vocabulary
and problem-solving skills, yet they are not at the age where they want complete independence
from adults. This makes the teacher-student relationship stronger than ever. The problem we
discovered is they still lack core skills, and although they are highly intelligent, they struggle
to keep up with students ages 10 and up. The solution we found is to provide them with their
own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their
adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them
up for success. With that said a structured program introducing core skill-based training in
Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.








Extreme SKILLZ Program - Ages 10 to 14

Introducing the Internationally-Acclaimed Extreme SKILLZ Program!

Ten to fourteen-year olds are the smartest students in the school.
Yes, they are smarter than most adults! They are also physically
competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. The problem we
discovered is they are so focused on what is socially acceptable that they have a hard time keeping
themselves emotionally driven to the task at hand. The solution we found is to provide them with
their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that nurtures their social
and emotional instability while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With
that said a structured program introducing extreme skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven
to be very successful.
