Through Guardian Art, children have the opportunity to learn and practice different ways to protect themselves in an upbeat and positive atmosphere. The skills they will learn can stop most abuse, abduction, assault, and bullying, as well as improve other aspects of their life.
The course is tailored accordingly to the age and understanding level of the child. But regardless of age, all YOUNGLINGS COURSES have the following elements:
One aspect of how we teach children how to protect themselves is through the use of effective physical self-defense strategies which include strikes, escapes, blocks, throws, and even grappling. We make sure their learning experience is both efficient and safe by having them practice directly with highly trained instructors through one-on-one sparring, and we focus on having the children achieve the understanding of using these skills to protect themselves and others.
Proper communication is well known to play a large role in everyday life. Thus, another aspect of how we teach children to protect themselves is by teaching them various verbal commands and having them practice expressing them confidently. These verbal commands play hand in hand with drills made to help children develop the skills to recognize and safely deal with situations like teasing, bullying, strangers, etc.
It is important for children to be healthy, strong, and coordinated, because it will enhance their general lifestyle, improve their ability to defend themselves, raise their confidence, strengthen their skills in other activities, and so on! Therefore, unique to other self-defense programs, Guardian Art gives kids the opportunity to enjoy tumbling, free running, parkour, balance beams, rope climbing, obstacle courses, and much more in order to build their coordination and strength. Additionally, we educate the children on how to be healthy in other aspects in life via seminars on the benefits of a nutritional diet, the harmful effects of drugs, and much more from accredited experts.
