Does your 5 or 6 year-old need to learn self-discipline and emotional control?
The Basic Skillz program uses organized kids activities to teach young children to be focused and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun and educational setting.
At times, it can be easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5 and 6-year-old kids. They're better at following instructions and paying attention than younger kids, but they still may need some help in controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.
All Skillz Programs
Does Your 5-6 Year Old Need Help In These Areas...
They have trouble focusing and don't look at you when you speak to them.
They get angry easily and small things may cause them to lose control.
They lack the discipline to follow through on tasks without being reminded.
Parenting a Child is Harder Than You Might Expect
Luckily there is a comprehensive solution.
Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. They're intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.
Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Basic Skillz program.
Your Child Will Grow With Every Class!
Our Basic Skillz program teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.
Physical Fitness and Balance
When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they're in motion.
The basic martial arts skills taught in the Basic Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.
Complex Memory Skills
At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to tell their left from their right.
Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.
Stay In Control
Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they're excited – and to shut down when they're sad or scared.
In our Basic Skillz program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.
Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don't handle losing very well.
In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.
