Classes Ages 6 – 10: Youth Program
The Youth Program is divided into three skill levels, all training on different days of the week. See the Youth Schedule below. This division helps to ensure that our students learn alongside other students at their level and the high instructor-to-student ratio ensures that students receive the support they require to excel.
The age-specific curriculum lays the foundation to learn kung-fu, emphasizing values such as respect, discipline and hard work. As students progress through the Youth Program, they experience the benefits of their hard work, such as achieving their next rank, improved listening skills resulting in higher grades, and building friendships with others.

(Youth train 2-times per week. Although not advisable, upon request, 1-time per week may be arranged on a temporary basis for these programs. Once the first belt is earned, class time changes. This process typically takes approximately 2 months, but is dependent upon achieving certain milestones in the curriculum.)
