In order to truly master the Machida Karate techniques and its philosophy, one ought to begin learning early. In our Little Dragons Karate classes, kids between the age of 4 and 6 will be introduced to Machida Karate basic techniques, they will learn about its Philosophy and how to apply different techniques.
Being that our Little Dragons will be learning together with other Little Dragons, a strong emphasis is to be put on helping them to develop a sense of teamwork, focus and balance. We also want to help our students to remember that, although winning is a great accomplishment, loosing is part of life, and that the most important thing is to be able to give one’s best.
A variety of drills are used to increase body coordination, focus, listening skills and to instill a positive mental attitude. Little Dragon classes teach the basic techniques and Katas to prepare the student for advancement under the Machida Karate Belt System and for the transition to the Youth Samurai program.
