Dragon Hatchlings is a revolutionary programme for pre school aged children aimed at them with an opportunity to have fun whilst developing important age appropriate skills in a martial arts environment. Activities are designed to enhance the development of physical skills such as walking and running; to improve motor coordination (both fine and gross motor skills) as well as balance. In addition children may be challenged mentally through activities which require focus and concentration. They will also be encouraged to improve their communication skills (speaking and listening) and their ability to work with another to achieve a goal (team building). They will develop an understanding of respect for themselves and others. Their self-confidence and self- esteem will grow and a positive attitude to physical activity will be nurtured within a safe, structured and fun martial arts class.
The class is open to any child and parent/relative/carer. Each session is based on a theme which is presented through exciting activities, some of which may involve the parent/relative/carer whilst in others the children will be encouraged to attempt them by themselves. At Aspire Martial Arts, we recognise that all children are individual and with years of experience working with young children, we aspire to encourage, listen to, motivate and inspire you and your child.
