Red Dragon Hatchlings (3-4 Years Old)

Does Your 3-4 Year Old Struggle with Self-Control?

The Red Dragon Hatchlings Class utilizes the Early SKILLZ program to 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.

A Few Words From Shigong

I’m Shigong Guerrero, Owner / Head Instructor here at Red Dragon Championship Martial Arts.

As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.

But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.

Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.

It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus, and respect.

With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.

That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness, and self-respect.

And of course, it’s a ton of FUN!

That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.

So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.


Does Your 3-4 Year Old Struggle With These Things?

  • They are shy and may have difficulty approaching other kids – or sharing in a play situation.
  • They don’t pay attention to their surroundings and may end up being unintentionally destructive as a result.
  • They lack control and can’t stay in one place long enough to eat a meal or watch a movie.

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 into consideration.

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!

Our Hatchlings Class uses Early SKILLZ, which 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, Hatchling students learn how to control their movements, follow directions, and interact with students and teachers.
