Are you familiar with Little Dragons at Horizon? It is a karate class for 3 – 5 year olds! Since children love to move and “play” karate, what better way to introduce them to the real thing than in a safe, fun karate class? There are so many teaching moments that I thought you might like to see a small sampling of the class activity. Here are a couple of the “fill in the blanks” that are used in the class:
- Remember, adults are ______________and____________than you.
- Never walk home_____________.
- If someone approaches you, keep your _____________ away from them so they cannot___________you.
- Who is a trusted adult? _______________
These are great reminders for all of us. What better way to teach children to be aware of their surroundings on an ongoing basis? And the moves the Little Dragons learn are so fun and energetic! All the while they are learning respect too. We all know that is a great part of karate.
It’s a great class. Please give the office at 616-669-7722 a call if you would like more information.
