MINI RANGERS

What does this program do for my child?

This program is not just a martial arts program, it is a program that helps with the development of a strong foundation for children aged 3-6 years. The program was developed with the guidance of the early years learning framework (EYLF). The frame work is the standard that preschools in Australia adhere to for the development for this age group.

How does martial arts coincide with the early years learning framework?

With martial arts and the EYLF, they share very similar fundamentals. Building one’s sense of identity in the early years learning framework is very relevant in the martial arts. Having the mini rangers perform their moves in front of the class will build their confidence and will also allow them to develop their identity.

Why does the Mini Rangers program run for 30 minutes?

Through our many years of experience, we have found that thirty minutes is the optimal length of time for the younger aged children. With the students aged 3-6, with their shorter attention spans, classes are still dynamic and fun to continue to develop their attention spans and concentration. Longer class times have a negative effect on the concentration of the Mini Rangers.

Should I stay and watch my child when they are doing their class?

If your child is nervous and shy, we would recommend that you stay so that they can feel comfortable with new people. Once they gain more confidence, we would recommend that parents should leave their child with the instructor or watch from a distance. This will allow the instructor to build the child’s confidence even more.

Why are the classes separated into 3-4 and 5-6 years?

With the mini rangers, the development of the 3-4 years age group are vastly different from the 5-6 years age group. With the 3-4 years, in accordance with the EYLF, students learn the very basics of martial arts with a focus more on their balance and co-ordination. As they move up in the 5-6 years age group, their fundamentals have improved. This means the focus is more on their confidence and social skills and building up their school readiness.

MARTIAL RANGERS

What does this program do for my child?

Our Martial Rangers program has been developed over the years as a strong foundational program to build both a child’s physical and mental skills. The program focuses on developing the co-ordination and physical attributes for strong and active children as well as developing their confidence and social skills. For the overactive children that struggle to sit still the Martial Ranger program aids in building up their discipline and concentration, while the children who are shy and quiet, we build up their confidence and bring them out of their shells.

We also have a strict bully-free environment in our club, teaching our students to both stand up for themselves towards bullies as well as recognising and providing an outlet for those who may potentially be the bullies.

TEENS & ADULTS

What are our Teens and Adults classes about?

This program focuses on fundamentals of Taekwondo as well as the basics of weaponry and self defence. Our teens and adults program focuses on both health-related fitness such as cardiovascular endurance and skill related fitness such as speed and balance. In this class you will not only be taught different kicks, strikes and combinations, you will also be taught elements of different martial arts such as ground defence, standing self-defence and weapons for coordination and flexibility.

Do I need prior experience to start?

You don’t need any prior experience to join! All our classes are beginner friendly and you will receive plenty of guidance from our professional instructors! Although we have set our curriculum to be a little challenging, you are able to set your own pace for your training and you will always be encouraged to do your best. We have many different ages from young teenagers up to parents and adults looking for a change from gym fitness routine.

What are the mental benefits of joining Teens and Adults?

We believe that martial arts have a wide array of health benefits, not only physically but also emotionally. Martial arts like Taekwondo help individuals create a healthy, stable mindset and helps alleviate stress. Simple breathing exercises like meditation can be very beneficial for relieving one’s anxiety. Taekwondo also helps you relieve negative tension through exercise and lower your stress levels. At Martial Arts Spirit we notice our students increase in confidence right from the very beginning. Our classes are tailored to meet everyone’s specific needs, so every student feels strong and capable and more confident.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

Martial Arts Spirit is the proud innovator of preschool specific Martial Arts Programs in Australia. Our preschool program was featured on Sunrise and 7 News for being the pioneer in our industry. Preschool instructors are all Working With Children accredited and highly qualified. Our Preschool Mini Rangers curriculum involves martial arts techniques, flexibility, meditation and has been developed closely with preschool staff to target the five milestones in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF):

  • Physical—gross and fine motor skills
  • Social—finding a sense of identity and building relationships with others
  • Emotional—encouraging an appreciation for diversity and differences and learning to empathise and show affection
  • Cognitive—developing basic problem solving skills and understanding concepts and exercises memory
  • Language—building communication skills and being able to explain and describe objects or experiences

These growing years are by far the most crucial to the creation of who a child is as an individual. The values and experiences that they are instilled with at this early age will remain with them for the rest of their lives and shape who they are as an adult.

If you would like your preschool to offer a service that gives the children a qualification in martial arts and makes your business different to your competition, contact us to see how we can implement this service into your preschool and what benefits it has for your business as well as your clients.
