Classes are broken into smaller sections, allowing children to grasp each component – their confidence increases every time something new is learned. In addition, your child will earn coloured stripes on their belts, recognising attendance and achievement. All of our confidence-building exercises also help to develop hand-eye coordination and motor skills. Through our philosophy of positive reinforcement, and the interaction with instructors and children, your child will develop the security and confidence to accept separation from you, be more focused and attentive, and ready for the road ahead in school.
