JUNIOR
DRAGONS

this program is designed for children ages 8-15 years and is based in the guiding principles of jeet kune do.

JKD for kids

The Junior Dragons program is based on the principles of Jeet Kune Do, developed by Bruce Lee. The class is specifically designed for ages 8 to 15 years. Some of the philosophies of Jeet Kune Do are simplicity, directness and economy of motion such that the students learn to “carve away” the inessentials when moving their bodies. Everything the student is taught falls under these criteria so that the martial art the student is learning will be efficient and useful. The students then are given the opportunity to apply their martial arts in the form of closely supervised sparring. In this manner they see that they are actually learning to fight rather than just learning “forms.”

This program, which is a Junior Black Belt program, also gives older children an opportunity to work on social development and martial arts skills in a safe, fun, and positive environment. Positive behavior and skill development are rewarded with patches and colored belts. Our instructors focus on teaching leadership qualities that can help your child to be successful in life. Kids learn to show respect for their teachers, other students and themselves. They also learn good sportsmanship and proper body mechanics. Your child will gain internal and external strength, confidence and flexibility. All of these lessons can enrich your child’s life by teaching them how to express themselves fully not just in martial arts, but in every aspect of their lives.

“My child loves the junior dragons program – he’s made so many friends here!”

– Charlotte Smith, Parent
