CAN 3 YEAR OLDS REALLY LEARN MARTIAL ARTS? ISN’T THAT TOO YOUNG?
Children don’t begin to develop their finer motor skills until they are about five or six years old. This means that a 3-year-old or 4-year-old will have difficulty perfecting the finer details inherent in martial arts technique. This, however, does not mean that they can’t start the learning process. In our tots program, we focus on the effort the student puts into what they are attempting, not the actual physical result. This is difficult for many martial arts instructors who have, for years, felt that if you can’t do things perfectly, you shouldn’t do them at all. Since 1996, we have been constantly improving our tots program. One of our popular classes in the tots program involves a low-key introduction to dealing with strangers. Feedback from parents and the squeals of delight from the tots tells us were doing a great job.Posted on: January 2, 2016, by : admin
