Developmental milestones: Ages 3 through 5
'From ages three to five, your child's motor skills, language, thinking, and social development change dramatically.'

A good Martial Arts School can help your child during critical periods in his/her development. Here are the stages of development for ages three-five years.
No longer a toddler, your three year old takes in knowledge about himself and the world around him.
The rituals and routines of our Martial Arts program promote a sense of security and belonging. Although well supervised, the program offers independent activity that builds self-reliance. Kicks, Blocks and Punches give sensory experiences that strengthen learning skills and coordination.
Silly, imaginative, and energetic, your child loves to try new words and new activities.
There are many ways to receive approval for real achievement, and to make the connection between effort and outcome. The required material is taught consistently in both group and private lessons, in a positive, disciplined environment.
Your cooperative, easy-going Five Year Old loves to play and that's how he learns.
We help kids manage their emotions and behavior with the principles of Effort, Etiquette, Sincerity, Self-Control, and Character. These values will empower them in all areas of their life. Kids that have self-defense training are less likely to be affected by bullies. Having good safety skills may make the difference in preventing abduction and other dangerous situations.
Each week, your child will attend a thirty minute private lesson. The private lesson is by appointment to fit your schedule and may have 1-4 students. Kids love the personal attention, and we monitor their progress one-on-one.
There are four group classes per week, and your child may attend as often as you like. Most students do very well attending 2-3 times per week.
We use a Belt system to measure and set goals for training. Each student may learn at their own pace. When the student completes the requirements for a new level, they receive an invitation to test for the next rank. Parents and Teachers will need to inform USSD that the student is showing good behavior in all areas in order to advance. Only when the student has shown proficiency at the current level will they be alllowed to move forward.
In addition to private and group instruction, you will receive a USSD Student Manual and access to our on-line video library. Understanding what your child is learning and helping them practice correctly is fairly easy.
