“Little Ninja” is a specially designed class for pre-school-aged children, ages 3 to 5. In this class, we focus on developing the basic physical, neurological and motor development of small children. We use basic training, which includes simple punching and kicking drills and basic techniques from Ninjutsu, the real art of the Ninja. They start by learning the Ninjutsu stances (Kamae). We also have simple obstacle courses to help students gain good hand and eye coordination, balance and more precise motor function in the muscles of the arms and legs. We also teach basic self-defense techniques that are taught on their level. We have physical games that help build their cardiovascular health and getting them some good exercise. We also teach important fundamental morals, which includes; learning how to be a good person, having good manors, how to obey and respect their parents and teachers and how to share with their peers.
We teach a stranger to be aware program to all our students. We also teach the very basic fundamentals of punching, kicking, redirection of strikes, how to roll and tumble, how to use padded swords, foam throwing stars and padded staffs. We also incorporate many games and contests into the program to make it fun.
