Spencer's Isshinryu Karate

A PROGRAM JUST FOR  KIDS!

Spencer’s Isshinryu Karate is one of eight hundred martial arts schools across America catching kids early and teaching children from ages four to six how to respect their bodies as well as their parents and teachers. The primary focus of the Lil’ Dragon curriculum is to give preschool and early elementary school children the “Yes, I Can Do It” attitude!

We understand that children are not little adults; they are children with different learning styles and temperaments. The Lil’ Dragon program teaches children to be good citizens and to prepare them for life.  It includes units in safety and life skills.  Other things our Lil’ Dragons pick up while in our classes:

  • Learn to share
  • Develop self-esteem
  • Develop a sense of independence
  • Take turns
  • Promote physical strength
  • Promote coordination & stamina
  • Build fundamental motor skills
  • Follow direction
  • Show self-control
  • Act respectfully


OUR CLASSES
Our classes are taught by enthusiastic instructors, who have a passion for sharing their martial arts knowledge with others (it’s not just their job)! We focus on developing children’s ability to learn and focus their eyes, minds, and bodies.

LEVELS OF LEARNING

  • Beginner  - This 30 minute class focuses on helping your child develop coordination, cooperation, respect, balance, listening, sitting still, and following directions. They also learn basic punching, kicking, sparring, and self-defense techniques.
  • Advanced – Take your training to the next level! In this 30 minute class our Lil’ Dragons continue to develop their karate and life skills until they are old enough to move into our kids program.


AFTER LIL’ DRAGONS
The Lil’ Dragon program is designed to feed directly into our kids program designed for 7 to 12 year olds.

Lil' Dragons

Our Lil’ Dragons (ages 5-6 yrs) benefit from our Lil’ Dragons curriculum, as Spencer’s Isshinryu Karate is one of eight hundred martial arts schools across America catching kids early and teaching children from ages four to eight how to respect their bodies as well as their parents and teachers. The primary focus of the Lil’ Dragon curriculum is to give preschool and early elementary school children the “Yes, I Can Do It” attitude!

Our child friendly karate program is lots of fun and improves their gross motor skills, balance, coordination, dexterity and flexibility.  We work on their listening skills, their ability to follow directions, and sitting still.  This program prepares them for the natural progression to the Karate Kids class, (ages 7-12 yrs).

All of our students benefit from our life skills program. 

They learn to be ASSERTIVE, rather than aggressive,

and to handle conflict without violence.

“We build life skills.”
