IS YOUR CHILD A YOUNG WARRIOR?
The only things necessary to be a Young Warrior is the willingness to learn and a good attitude. Every child has strengths and weaknesses that come out during class. Our goal is to develop character in your child so that their strengths become assets and their weaknesses become goals.
HOW TO BECOME A YOUNG WARRIOR
Every potential student goes through a two stage process consisting of an interview and two week trial period in order to be accepted into the Young Warriors program. Once accepted, the student and parent must make a commitment to a minimum of 3 months. This is important in order to maintain the quality of our learning environment.
Part of what makes Young Warriors so great is the class size. We maintain a small group setting so each child is personally coached and not left behind. If classes are full your child will be put on our waiting list until a opening is available. Our goal is quality and not quantity. Our instructors teach youth because they believe that the passing down of the ancient arts is an investment into each child's life that in turn will better the community.

Wednesday 4:00pm - 4:30p

Young Warriors is far more than a youth martial arts class. Our program utilizes the small group setting to develop strong leadership and team building character traits in your child. Contrary to the McDojo style of youth martial arts classes that have large groups and hand out belts regularly, the Young Warriors program focuses on devlopeing community and excellence with realistic performance expectations.
The focus of each class is on self-discipline, focus, self-confidence, and physical awareness through traditional Chinese Martial Arts in a safe fun environment.
1. Breathing Exercises - to develop focus and a calm mind
