Does your 5 or 6-year-old need to learn self-discipline and emotional control?

The Basic SKILLZ program teaches young kids to be
focused and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun,
educational setting.

PARENTING A CHILD IS
HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT
EXPECT
LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE
SOLUTION…

Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have
a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions.
They’re intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.
Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the
importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they
learned in the Early SKILLZ program.

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW
WITH EVERY CLASS!

Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social
environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork,
discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts

moves.

PHYSICAL FITNESS AND
BALANCE

When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.
The basic martial arts skills taught in the Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their
coordination.

COMPLEX MEMORY SKILLS

At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to
tell their left from their right.
Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and
right commands without hesitation.

STAY IN CONTROL
EVEN WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE STRONG
EMOTIONS

Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re
sad or scared.
In our Basic SKILLZ program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited –
and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP

Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.
In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept
defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.
