Pre K Lil Dragons Karate
Pre K 3 and 4 year olds

Experience an introduction to martial arts in this fun filled, fast-paced class designed just for your Lil’ Dragon! CMA's Lil’ Dragon kids martial arts class promotes inner strength while increasing confidence in physical and social abilities.

Children need a place to focus their energy, move, and be engaged. CMA’s Lil’ Dragons program is specifically designed for 3-8 year olds to help them grow into strong, confident, goal-oriented students. Students will get an introduction to the martial arts through fun activities and drills. Students learn life and safety skills, discipline, and respect along with basic martial arts techniques. Lil’ Dragons is the place to start developing habits that lead to a healthier, happier, and more confident child.

The skills students gain are skills they need in many aspects of life: listening skills, longer periods of focus and attention, self-control of actions and attitudes, participating in group activities, and sharing with others.

The goal of Lil’ Dragons is to teach important life skills, begin learning karate and grappling techniques, be active, and have fun. Students also gain improved hand-eye coordination and motor skills, listening and concentration skills, and respect.

Melody Shuman Johnson’s
SKILLZ DYNAMIC MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING INSTRUCTORS CERTIFICATION

Here’s one more reason why CMA is the NUMBER ONE choice of parents when it comes to martial arts and self defense in the tri-county area:

Coach Margret Sanders and Junior Coach James, learned the Four Stages of Child Development for children 3-4 years old, 5-6 years old, 7-9 years old, and 10-14 years old as well as the Ten Laws of Instruction and the Seven Steps for Teaching a Drill.

Our coaches learned what we can physically and emotionally expect in each age group along with what our goals for them should be. By understanding how the brain chemistry affects learning and various teaching techniques, we can use that knowledge to boost those chemicals to enhance learning.

Reviewing the Melody Shuman Johnson’s “Seven Steps of Teaching a Drill”, we learned how to most effectively teach a drill so that children will WANT to participate and learn. By using these steps, it also guarantees uniformity in our teaching method for all of our CMA instructors when teaching a class.

At different ages, kids have different motor skills & levels of intelligence. By breaking kids up based on these scientific facts - and giving them EXACTLY what they need at each level - class becomes more powerful, fun, and easier than ever!
