For children, the learning process should be fun without the pressure of having to learn. Yet, we as adults want children to learn attributes which will allow them to move into the adult world with confidence and self assurance.
The key to making both the children and parents happy is to create a learning atmosphere where training is fun, yet serious. Our program offers a number of challenging ways for children to enjoy developing confidence, self respect, self esteem, responsibility, discipline and teamwork as well as leadership skills. The training center is filled with exciting training devices that not only enhance the children's positive attitude, but expand their physical qualities, such as, speed, power, coordination, balance, rhythm, timing and endurance. These devices include electronic timers, spring loaded dummies, mobile and stationary bags, kicking and punching shields, and many other interesting gadgets to test the children's skills
We are often referred to as the:
"DISNEYLAND of MARTIAL ARTS"
WHERE LEARNING AND TRAINING ARE FUN
Ages 4 to 5 yrs old.
The emphasis at this level is to teach the child how to learn. Listening and focus are two initial basic elements as well as proper responses to short commands. Teamwork and sharing drills as well as low pressure leadership skills are also underlined. Simple requirements of responsibility and discipline help round out the child's first efforts to move smoothly into the next age group. The "peer chat" concept is introduced, which stimulates interaction between fellow students. This basic chat introduction explores how a 4 or 5 year thinks and understands their world at home.
Ages 5 to 6 yrs old.
This level expands on the elements of the younger students and broadens the attributes learned. Building confidence, self esteem, respect for others, responsibility at home, at school and in social situations is just as important as learning self defense skills. The "peer chat" is expanded to include the broadening world of school and the environment outside the home.
Ages 7 to 12 yrs old.
"Foundation to becoming an adult" is the total purpose of this level. The training in the younger student elements is greatly expanded. Children are able to think and understand more and are starting to develop a challenging personality. They need to see the value in what they are doing rather than just train for entertainment or amusement. Children need to see improvement and have a feeling of growth. The personal requirements and training focus become more specific and detailed and students must make a bigger commitment to themselves and the efforts they are willing to put out. Working as part of a team as well as identifying independent abilities and skills is promoted. The "peer chat" is now more serious and covers daily events and the conflicts that prey on a youngster's mind.
Learning personal communication skills is a required part of the TWCD program. The non-invasive techniques allow the students to better understand where they are at and where they are going. It introduces simple, yet practical methods to clarify their thoughts and feelings and put them into a productive perspective. The techniques are universal and work well for a child or an adult.
