Lil' Dragons Class (5-6 Years Old)

Does your child need help exercising self-discipline and emotional control? 

Our Lil’ Dragons Kids Martial Arts class uses the Basic SKILLZ program to teach young kids to focus and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun and educational setting. 

At times, teachers and parents can mistake the amount of self-control 5 and 6 year-olds may have. Though they may be better at following instructions and focusing on tasks than younger kids, they still need some help controlling themselves and paying attention.

A Few Words From Shigong

Shigong Guerrero is the Owner and 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. If there’s anything more important than the martial arts skills they learn, it’s the personal skills they develop and carry for life.”

“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 I know your kids are going to LOVE training. Take a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.”

Sometimes, Parenting A Child Can Be Challenging

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution...

Kids that are 5-6 years old tend to have a bit more control than younger kids, but sometimes they need a little guidance when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. Young children can be intellectually curious and its best they learn in a disciplined setting.

Our Kids Martial Arts program gives your children the tools they need to succeed as they grow. Lil’ Dragons will teach them the importance of self-discipline and self-control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Hatchlings program.


Your Child Will Grow With Every Class!

In the Lil’ Dragons Martial Arts program, kids learn to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They’ll also learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.

Physical Fitness and Balance

When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.

The basic martial arts skills taught in the SKILLZ program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.

Complex Memory Skills

At ages 5 and 6, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also experience difficulty in learning left from right. Lil’ Dragons Martial Arts program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.

Stay in Control

Even when they experience strong emotions, Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re sad, angry or scared.
Kids Martial Arts focuses on teaching children to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.

Good Sportsmanship

Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.

In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.
