3 and 4 Year Olds
Does Your 3-4 Year Old Struggle with Self-Control?
The Little Dragons program can help them learn appropriate behavior in a fun setting.
Three and four-year-old children are naturally curious. They’re restless and eager to explore their surroundings – and to test boundaries and establish their identities. They might not be ready for the rigid structure of a traditional martial arts class, but they do need to start learning about appropriate behavior.
PARENTING CAN FEEL LIKE RUNNING A MARATHON!
LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION
It’s exhausting, and it’s not uncommon for parents to feel frustrated as they try to get their young children to behave, sit still, and be aware of what’s going on around them. Getting them to participate in any group activity can be difficult at best, particularly when the activity doesn’t take their natural inclinations and developmental needs.
The key to helping kids at this age gain control is to teach them basic skills while entertaining them. With calm and steady guidance, they can learn to understand basic martial arts skills – and acceptable martial arts school behavior – and have fun, too!

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Little Dragons gives young children the basic skills and discipline they need to succeed. While they learn simple martial arts moves such as kicking, punching, blocking, crawling, and jumping, they also grasp valuable lessons about social conduct. Over time, Little Dragons students learn how to control their movements, follow directions, and interact with students and teachers.
MARTIAL ARTS BUILDS COORDINATION AND CONTROL
Students learn to be aware of themselves, others, and their surroundings, and to control their movements accordingly.
By learning basic martial arts moves, they build muscle coordination and become increasingly aware of spatial awareness.
FOCUS AND ATTENTION SKILLS
Kids learn how to pay attention to verbal commands when they are given, and to avoid tuning out when something seems complicated.
By learning how to focus and ignore distractions, kids learn how to follow verbal instructions – and to remember them without needing reminders.
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING ENCOURAGES PERSEVERANCE
Kids learn how to manage anxiety and negative feelings, and not to give up when they are frustrated or upset.
Little Dragons includes training to help kids learn the value of persistence as they pursue achievable goals in a supportive setting.
RESPECT IS THE CORNERSTONE OF MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING
Little Dragons classes underscore the importance of self-respect and respect for others in social and classroom settings.
In our martial arts school, kids learn that all classmates are to be treated with respect, and be supportive and encouraging as their classmates pursue their goals.
