Lil Dragons (Pre K – 2nd Grade)

Pre K through 2nd Grade

Chuck Cawthon, also known as “Mr. Chuck” to the Lil Dragons, developed this curriculum ESPECIALLY  for this age group!  After decades of teaching martial arts as well as working in the public school system as a Physical Education Paraprofessional, “Mr. Chuck” knows how to teach on a level that young children not only understand but also LOVE!

There are 3 phases to our Lil Dragons which includes kids aged 4-8. The 1st phase is for Pre K 4/5 year olds. The 2nd phase is for K-2nd grade beginners. The 3rd phase is for K-2nd grade advanced. In our Lil Dragons we teach discipline, manners, respect, and self confidence through fun exciting karate drills and games.

Martial arts builds self-confidence and teaches discipline which will provide a solid foundation from which your children will develop strong character. While studying the martial arts is fun, children will be learning important lessons in values and respect that will shape how they view the world around them.

CMA’s Lil Dragon program is designed to teach and reinforce positive behaviors through easy to learn fun activities that focus on self control, coordination, and building self esteem, as well as many other important ideals and traits. There is a noticeable improvement in our Lil Dragons’ listening and focusing skills, as well as their self control, as they progress through our program. Our instructors work closely with our Lil Dragons and their parents to address any concerns or behavior problems that our students may be exhibiting. We can accomplish this by providing a safe, positive environment where our Lil Dragons can learn for themselves – what is the right thing to do and have a great time in the process.

Here are just a few of the benefits your child will experience from our

Lil Dragon Program:

  1. Fostering Self-Discipline – One of the central tenets of all forms of the martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Today’s kids are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in self-restraint and discipline aren’t always easy to come by. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.
  2. Boosting Socialization Skills – Kids who don’t always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they’re in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. The kids on the playground may not always have much common ground, but devotees to the martial arts are able to get to know one another through shared pursuits. Partner-driven forms like jiu jitsu can also foster camaraderie, as they force kids to pair off and build their skills together.
  3. Encouraging Physical Activity – Limiting screen time is a great idea when it comes to getting kids off the couch and encouraging them to be more active, but it only goes so far. Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle she’s used to, but also gives her an enjoyable activity that inspires her to keep moving.
  4. Learning to Set and Achieve Goals – Most forms of martial arts are based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer’s degree of skill. When your child strives toward each new belt, he’s learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching his goals.
  5. Increased Self-Esteem – Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move he masters and every belt he earns. Kids who struggle with a low sense of self-worth usually become more confident as time progresses while they’re enrolled in a martial arts class.
  6. Instilling a Sense of Respect – Learning any martial arts style will require your child to show her instructor unflinching respect. Today’s kid culture doesn’t always include respect for authority, adults or those in advanced positions. When she goes to her karate or tae kwon do class, though, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with new moves.
  7. Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution – Thinking that martial arts instruction promotes violent behavior is justified if your only experience with the activity comes from television or movies. In fact, many defensive styles teach kids peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasize the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.
  8. Improving Listening Skills – In order to master the skills she’s being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills. Kids who aren’t always adept when it comes to paying attention to what they’re told can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work in her dojo.
  9. Developing Teamwork Skills – Whether he’s breaking boards to get a new belt or sparring in a practice setting to master a new maneuver, there are few things that your child does in his martial arts classes that will be done on his own. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is an important life lesson for kids to learn, and instruction in the martial arts can help your child learn that lesson.
  10. Improvement in Other Areas of Life – The benefits of martial arts training don’t end in the dojo. The boost in confidence, increased fitness level and new cooperation skills will also help your child navigate the academic and social aspects of school, affect his behavior at home and have an all-around good influence on him as he develops into an adult.

Junior Karate (3rd – 8th Grade)

“Mr. Chuck” developed this curriculum with the older child in mind.  This curriculum is not only FUN, but also has “age appropriate self defense”.

The Junior Curriculum is for ages 8-14. Martial Arts builds self-confidence and teaches discipline which will provide a solid foundation from which your children will develop strong character. While studying the martial arts is fun, your children will also be learning important lessons in values and respect that will shape how they view the world around them. Even though we teach to avoid confrontations, if the need arises, your children can be secure in their knowledge of how to defend themselves from physical harm. This is the power derived from the martial arts.

Here is just a few benefits your child will be get from training at CMA:

  1. Fostering Self-Discipline – One of the central tenets of all forms of the martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline.

Junior Black Belt Class

This class is for those karate students who are Junior Black Belts working on their Adult Black Belt.  Mr. Chuck specifically designed this class for CMA’s Junior Black Belts to not only learn the adult karate curriculum in order to test for their SOLID black belt, but also to maintain their knowledge of the junior curriculum as well.

Ranks of CMA’s Junior Black Belt:

  • First Degree = Adult Yellow Belt
  • Second Degree = Adult Orange Belt
  • Third Degree = Adult Green Belt
  • Fourth Degree = Adult Blue Belt
  • Fifth Degree = Adult Brown Belt

After receiving a Fifth Degree Junior Black Belt, the next belt will either be the Advanced Junior Black Belt or the Adult Solid Black Belt.(both tests are the same and equal, but the Advanced Junior Black Belt has a red stripe down the middle of the black belt.  This belt is usually for those 16 years and younger.  Once of a certain age, the Adult Solid Black Belt will be awarded at a ceremony.)

Mondays: 6:30pm-7:30pm

Birthday Parties

What better way to celebrate your child’s birthday than with an activity that they love? Birthday parties at Contemporary Martial Arts are sure to be an experience your child will never forget. Our birthday parties are fun, safe and carefully supervised by our certified instructors.

Parents, this is the perfect way to introduce children who are shy about trying the martial arts; they often feel more secure in a festive environment with lots of friends. So remember not only are our parties a lot of fun but they will be very educational as well, covering good nutrition, stranger danger and bully prevention. For your child’s birthday, give them the gift of confidence! (For ages 5 & up)
