Having had many enquiries from parents of younger children we decided to start a special class for 4 to 6 year olds who usually do not yet have the necessary physical ability or confidence to join the regular junior class. This is our "Little Ninjas" class. In this class children work to a special programme which uses martial arts based excercise to get them fit and teach them valuable life skills which will help them as they progress into school.
However, it is important to uderstand that through this training they are actually learning the beginnings of our full Kuk Sool Hapkido syllabus and will, as they get older, be able to progress through the normal belt system all the way to Black Belt.
The classes are a lot of fun and include basic blocking techniques using our safety blockers and also falling techniques. The younger Ninjas do not have any student to student contact such as sparring or throwing techniques as we do not believe that young children will be able to understand the possible dangers.
These classes bring the following benefits;-
* Improved Discipline
* Better Concentration
* Teamwork & Sharing
* Balance & Coordination
* And of course...lots of FUN!
The children are rewarded for their progress with stickers, badges, and coloured stripes on their white belts. When they are ready, they may "graduate" into our regular Junior sessions to continue their martial arts education.
The picture below shows scenes from a typical Little Ninjas class.

The syllabus for "Little Ninjas" is devised in such a way that when students are ready to progress to our regular Junior lessons, they will be able to keep their exisitng belt, as they will know the required forms, techniques etc. This avoids any disppointment which would come with having to "start over" at white belt and ensures that they stay motivated to continue their training.
Our Little Ninjas classes started early 2010 with just one class each week. This has now been increased to twice weekly. Many of our Little Ninjas have already successfully made transfer to our regular Junior Class, meaning that we do now have a few spaces available for new students.
