In our Li'l Warriors Class, the areas of focus for our students are learning how to listen and follow instructions, proper etiquette and respecting others ("Yes, sir."/"Yes, ma'am."), discipline, self-confidence, learning how to fall properly (using arms, legs, and weight dispersion to protect the torso and head from impact damage), stance training, fundamental foot and hand coordination, basic strikes, basic blocking methods, and simple striking combinations (which helps with focus, memory retention, and learning sequenced movement). While the self-defense component is not the primary focus in this class, they do learn the foundations of techniques that can be applied in practical self-defense scenarios as they grow and mature in their time training with us. We have had positive feedback over the last few years about some of our Li'l Warriors using what they have learned in class in an effective, yet defensive, manner in pre-existing bullying situations at school that we are told no longer exist thanks to their training. It is often a big relief when parents know that their children have some degree of self-reliance in their own safety whenever they are not able to be around their children.
In our Junior Beginners Class, we retain the components of what is taught in the Li'l Warriors Class while broadening the types of techniques taught. For example, while we teach very little in the ways of grappling and taking an opponent to the ground in the Li'l Warriors Class, these genres of martial art are more prevalent in the Junior Beginners Class. Belt Testing is also a component, whereas in the Li'l Warriors Class, the only promotion that exists is in graduating from that class into the Junior Beginners Class rather than a promotion in belt rank. Upon joining the Junior Beginners Class as a new student, or graduating from the Li'l Warriors Class, the student now qualifies to test for their next rank on a quarterly basis. We draw the line between this class and the Adult Class based on age, height, weight, and maturity. Hence, why the cut off is "Middle School" age rather than a specified number (11, 12, 13, etc.).
In our Junior Advanced Class, we go a lot more in depth and detail with the genres of martial art that we teach: striking, blocking, evasion, grappling, take-downs, ground submissions, weapons, physical conditioning, and so on. Contact sparring and live rolling for grappling is now an option for those graduating into this class from the Junior Beginners Class (must have Yellow Belt for eligibility). Students will remain in this class until either they are old and mature enough (at our discretion) to train in our Adult Class, or achieve a 1st Degree Black Belt (see our Black Belt Requirements page); whichever scenario occurs sooner. This makes our overall goal for students in this class that of becoming more proficient at practical self-defense and competing at tournaments while still retaining their discipline and respect for others.
In our Adult Class, we spend most of our time and energy on learning the techniques being taught coupled with intense exercises and scenario applications. We do still retain the teachings that one should be self-disciplined, educated on the world around oneself, and respectful of all people and things in that world. It's all the life skills taught in the Junior Advanced Class with more effective techniques for a self-defense application. Students in this class will learn techniques quite early in their journey that the junior students most likely won't learn until they reach the Junior Advanced Class. This is because most adults walk through our doors on their own initiative with the intent to become proficient at the techniques we teach, or to take a serious step in the direction of becoming more physically fit. Whereas a plurality of junior students are introduced to our school, and the martial arts world, simply because "mom and dad put 'em in something". Given the wide age range, our Adult Classes offer a healthy variety of training partners. We have some really promising students enter this class as early as 11 years of age, while we simultaneously have students in their 60's and 70's happily training along side them. We do make sure that every potential participant in the middle school and high school age range is properly vetted upon signing up/graduation from the junior classes based on their size and maturity level. It offers a balance of energy in class, promotes maturity among students on the younger end of the spectrum, and gives the seasoned (but stiffer) veterans of the craft a good challenge.
