Children's Martial Arts in Houston Heights
Tiny Tots Jiu-Jitsu and Kids Jiu-Jitsu
(3 1/2 - 6 yrs & potty trained) (7 - 12 years of age)
Urban Jungle's tiny tot program in Houston Heights provides students with the guidance to attain self-confidence which leads them down the road to independence. At this young age, little ones are learning to differentiate between things that are safe and familiar and the things that are unknown and intimidating. Since all children develop and mature at different rates, we offer a free introductory class to see if your child is ready for our program.
Our program consists of teaching the life skills of following basic rules, defining boundaries, and following directions. These life skills eventually lead to self control and self confidence. Specific techniques are taught to encourage the development of fine motor skills and overall self esteem.
This is accomplished through games, drills and exercises that relate to techniques while keeping things flowing and fun for the children.
We encourage parents to watch their children from a designated waiting area during class. This area is necessary to keep children from running to the parent allowing the student to staying focused in the class. The instructor needs complete concentration from the student to ensure that the student stay on task throughout the class.
Kids' Jiu-Jitsu (7-12yrs}
Urban Jungle's kids program is a continuation of the Tiny Tots program without the games as fine motor skills have been developed. By this stage they are ready for more technique and training. Although they still have fun. the training is more focused and refined. Always working on self-control, self-defense and ultimately self-confidence.
The kids are challenged daily to work outside of their comfort zone learning to become more self sufficient and ultimately gaining confident problem solving skills.
Urban Jungle's instructors closely monitor progress and thoroughly walk with students every step of the way. You can expect your child to take away from this curriculum:
