Our proven ATCUSA Little Lions martial arts program for ages 3yrs to 6yrs, teaches self-control, self defense, manners and goal setting. Academy Masters and Instructors promote a positive attitude in your child. Children learn balance through coordination drills, focus, and the proper beginner level techniques of the martial arts, while learning basic tumbling and having fun staying in shape.
Children love our academy, and our Instructors care enough about all our students to teach proper, age appropriate, positive martial arts which encompass self-defense and anti-bullying life skills. Our program helps develop positive leaders for a better tomorrow. We do not teach violence, we teach life self defense and how to handle life's hurdles.
At our member schools, self-defense and bully-control training are also important parts of Little Lions classes, with a focus on communication skills, child safety skills and conflict avoidance training. We use plenty of positive encouragement while instilling self discipline and developing better focus.
At this young age, we start to prepare our youngest students for preschool and kindergarten, so they start with a greater ability to focus and complete the tasks assigned to them by their teachers and parents. Once they move to the junior program, ATCUSA member schools will start to require more from every child and will hold them responsible to practice techniques and stretching on a daily basis. We also check academic reports, track improvements and assist with any slipping grades or negative behaviors.
Training at ATCUSA member schools using our Little Lions methods, will also bring harmony to your home as siblings will learn to be kinder to each other and respectful to parents, guardians, extended family members, friends, community members and teachers.
ATCUSA over the past 20 years, has developed an age appropriate curriculum and Little Lion specific teaching methods which work. Many of our Little Lion children who have completed the program and achieved a black belt level, have gone on to many top universities, have become leaders in their fields and have become well adjusted individuals.
Remember not all martial arts are the same. Don't waste your monies on facilities which teach improper techniques and are not certified to teach martial arts or children.
