The Little Monsters Martial Arts programme for 3-6 yr olds is run at our Hillingdon and Slough Venues. The programme is designed to encourage the development of motor skills, balance, endurance, flexibility, strength and the coordination of eye, hand and foot.
The children wear a unique green and black uniform which helps them feel part of a team – they love the fun and excitement that takes place in each class and parents love to see their children achieve physical and mental development. Parents are often invited to participate during class and work together with their child.
Little Monsters is a mixture of simple training exercises and games designed to assist in the physical development, improved health and increased fitness of each child. The children attend a 45-minute weekly session, which combines fun, excitement and exercise in a safe and caring environment.
Our programme offers 3 to 6 yr olds an opportunity to learn basic martial arts and take part in fitness activities while at the same time having lots of fun.
Unlike traditional martial arts, Little Monsters are not rewarded on their ability as they have plenty of time to work on this, but instead they are rewarded for good behaviour, effort and perseverance. At the end of each class, the children will be given a Little Monsters sticker to attach to their attendance card. When they have earnt 8 Monster Stickers they will be promoted and earn a Monster Stripe on their belt – this provides a great sense of achievement!
Throughout the programme children also learn a variety of Life Skills – at the end of each topic period, children will have to show they understand the skills, and in some cases basic homework is also provided – upon completion of each skill the children earn a Monster Badge to go onto their uniform. Examples of Monster Badges are Healty Monster, Safe Monster, Honest Monster and Balancing Monster
