🎁 FREE BONUS! 4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence
A FEW WORDS
FROM MICHAEL EVANS
I’m Michael Evans, co-owner of Skillz of Patchogue.
As an instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because SKILLZ is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt:
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus, and respect.
In fact, martial arts training isn’t our goal at all. It is simply a tool that helps us engage the kids as we work directly on helping them with their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.
That’s because SKILLZ provides instant positive feedback (We call it “Teaching in 4D”). Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness, and self-respect.
And of course, it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching SKILLZ classes to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun child development classes.
DOES YOUR 5-6 YEAR OLD
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They typically have a hard time with instructions beyond three commands & have a hard time distinguishing between their left and right.
They typically only want to focus on things that make them happy. They also have slow brakes when they are very excited.
They love to play with others but are typically very competitive, especially when it comes to getting the attention of their parents
By understanding the stages of development of 5 and 6-year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Basic SKILLZ Program:
We take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use basic elements of a traditional Martial Arts curriculum to build skills that are appropriate for 5 and 6-year olds. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging. The best part is the Basic SKILLZ program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life!
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Basic SKILLZ gives young children the basic skills and discipline they need to succeed. While they learn simple martial arts moves such as kicking, punching, blocking, and simple self-defense, they also grasp valuable lessons about social conduct. Over time, Basic SKILLZ students build strong bodies, follow directions, and interact with students and teachers.
At this stage of development, kids typically do not know how to apply their muscles so they fall often when their body is in constant motion. Also, they have a basic foundation for leg, arm, core, and abdominal development, but they still lack a lot of strength.
We expect them to initially struggle with multiple kicks beyond five repetitions. We also expect them to initially have sloppy technique when exercising.
The goals for our program are to get them to perform high repetitions of kicks without putting their foot down, and also perform static, active, and dynamic exercises for beyond ten reps with good technique.
5 and 6 year old kids typically have a hard time retaining beyond three commands. They also have a hard time distinguishing between their left and right.
We expect them to initially get confused when we ask them to do more than three things at one time. We also initially expect them to have a hard time distinguishing between their left and right when following multiple commands.
The goal of our program is to get them to retain three or more commands at once, and beyond. We will also help them learn how to perform various left and right combinations.
At this age, kids typically focus on things that make them happy. They also have slow brakes when they are excited.
We expect them to initially lose focus and shut down when they are not happy. We also expect them to lose control when they are over-excited.
The goal of our program is to help them focus even when it’s hard to do so. We will also help them control their body and their power, especially when they are excited.
Basic SKILLZ kids love to play with others but are typically very competitive.
We expect them to initially show poor sportsmanship when they participate in a competition.
The goals for our program are to help them build good teamwork such as no cheating; don’t get angry when they lose; and don’t brag when they win
My 6 year old son has been attending Ninja class at 4GK since August 2018. He loves it and I do too! He loves the skills and games and I love the discipline he is learning. I’ve spoken with a child-behavior doc about what he gets to do in class and the doc was *thrilled*. It’s clear that he believes in the philosophies Sifu and Miss Heidi teach about the importance of play and physical activity for children for all aspects of their development.
My two sons have been coming here since December 2016. They absolutely love it & have THRIVED since coming! The older one suffers from anxiety & general fear, he has since built up tremendous confidence & has learned to verbalize any issues he may be having. The younger one is a ball of energy that needed direction & a release, he has achieved focus & better listening skills. The staff is AMAZING! They are welcoming, accommodating & listen to any issues you have whether it be with them, the class or your children. I could go to any of them & speak with them about ANYTHING & feel very comfortable doing so. Si Fu teaches the class in a low-key, fun manner that has the children engaged AND having fun at the same time, it's not the typical militant style. We received a military discount since my husband is a former marine AND ... They run a monthly themed Parents Night Out that gives parents a break without their kids from 7:30-10:00! I am thrilled that we found them & highly suggest to anybody looking for a martial arts school to check them out!
My oldest daughter has been coming here for a year. We fell in love immediately after seeing how wonderful the staff is with working with children of all ages. My second daughter was dying to be in a class also. As soon as she turned 3 we gave it a try and she has blossomed. Seemingly shy I was curious to see how her first class type activity would be. She loved it. Just waiting for daughter number three to be old enough because she is only two, but already feels like she belongs. We absolutely love it.
Great team! My daughter loves the school. She has learned so much since she started a year ago. I am so happy I found this place. I am so grateful for Ms. Heidi, Sifu Mike and all the team. Their love and dedication is shown in every class. Good job!!
