Warrior Skills Program
Structured Group Activities For Children Ages 13 And Up
Are You or Your Teenager Ready for a Challenge?
The Warrior Skills program helps teenagers and adults maximize their physical, intellectual, emotional and social capabilities in a stable and nurturing environment.
As adults, we face constant challenges in our life that must be overcome in order for us to find success. Our jobs place great demand on our time, effort, and mental energy.Our families and friends require our attention. The problem is that very often we become so consumed by providing for others that we lose sight of our own personal goals, we are too tired to take care of our own needs at the end of the day, and our health can sometimes even begin to deteriorate.
The solution we have come up with is to develop a unique program that targets the needs of adults while providing skill-based training that goes beyond the punches and kicks and helps create a lifestyle that makes success (however that is defined for each student) a bit easier to see... and attain.
With that said a structured program introducing physical, intellectual, emotional and social skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.

Common Factors Affecting Teenager and Adult Students
We may enjoy structured physical activities, but we often don't find the time to make them a priority.
Tempered mindsets, guided by past experiences can lead to poor decision making skills where we can't see the big picture.
Life experiences can lead to self defeating thoughts that often alter our mindset and hold us back.
A fine line exists between too little confidence and pushing too hard trying to prove themselves that they are capable.
What Can I Learn From the Warrior Skills Program?
Read on below to find out more about the 8 core skills that make up our Warrior Skills program.
By understanding the stages of teenage development and the needs of adults, we were able to select 8 skills that make up RevItUp's Warrior Skills Program.
We cover one of the below skills per class. During each class we run a warm-up, deliver a mat chat about the skill, run two or three skill-building drills and then we apply the skill to earn skill-stripes.
Students must earn all 8 skill-stripes in order to graduate to the next belt level, thus developing the ability to set goals and learning how to break those goals into manageable action steps.
Once students earn their next belt they will continue to run through all 8 skills earning their skill-stripes with a more challenging curriculum as they advance to each rank. Our adult students can work towards earning their 1st Degree Black Belt after they have successfully completed all 9 belt ranks of the Warrior Skills program.
Use it or lose it. Our bodies need to be strong enough to perform the techniques we have learned, our cardiovascular system robust enough to continue beyond what we thought we could do, our resolved hardened to see every effort through, even when the little voice inside says to rest. The Physicality skill helps us develop our bodies and minds to have the strength needed to face any task.
At a White Belt level, students will assess their current level of physical fitness, while also setting basic calisthenic goals.
Having strong basic technique is key when training martial arts. It is the foundation on which everything else is built. By taking the time to learn how each technique is executed without the fear of getting hurt, students are able to perform at higher levels while maintaining greater levels of safety for themselves and others.
At a White Belt level, students will learn the basic punching, kicking and stance work techniques.
Once a student knows some moves, it becomes important to learn how and when to apply them, how to link them together and how to control space, distance and timing. The Theory skill helps teach these concepts through the use of forms, which are choreographed patterns of movement, both solo and with partners. Forms are nothing more (or less) than the textbooks of our study.
At a White Belt level, students will learn the first set of 18 moves from the first form.
Learning to apply without the guidance of forms or instructors leads to competence and competence breeds confi dence. In aself-defense situation, you may be all alone. The Application skill leads students from classical choreographed movement to freestyle tactical self-defense, allowing the student to gain the skills necessary to protect themselves and others at a pace that is right for each individual.
At the White Belt Level, students will learn a simple takedown, how to fall correctly to avoid injury and a few basic self-defense techniques.
Success is attracted to speed. Knowing how to execute a technique is not enough. We must apply intent, power and commit to seeing things through. Dynamism helps us put plans into motion, imparting maximum effort to drive those plans to success. Whether it is breaking boards, throwing a partner, or making that sale at work, we must be ready to execute at the very moment that conditions align.
At a White Belt Level, students will learn several powerful kicks.
It is one thing to take the word of a trusted instructor that you are improving, but measuring oneself against the skills of others helps the martial artist gains both insight and experience. During the practice of the "e;proof" skill, students will start off working on pads, bags and mitts to learn how to adapt to the ever-changing fl ow of combat, eventually joining in sparring exercises with fellow students.
At the White Belt level, students will learn some basic sparring combinations and concepts while working with an instructor who is holding pads.
Martial Arts is about far more than the physical. In fact, without the proper mindset, success is all but impossible. The Mindset skill helps us develop the tools to see things in a new way, to see a world of possibility and opportunity rather than obstacle and defeat. No outside change can ever become powerful enough to overcome a misguided view of the world. By changing the inside, however, the outside cannot help but grow.
At the White Belt level, students will learn about "vision", what it means and how to apply it to both their martial arts and personal life goals.
This is where the real fun happens. During the "exploratory" classes, each instructor shares something of their own martial arts knowledge and experience. These lessons may span a single class or an entire testing cycle. They may cover exotic weapons, unique self-defense concepts, or even take you outside the school completely as the instructors guide your exploration of the world of martial arts.
At a White Belt level, students will be guided by the instructors with personal attention to help each student feel comfortable with the knowledge being shared.
