Kinder Kicks is a program developed for parents and children to exercise learn and play with a martial arts foundation. Children develop perseverance, self-control, courage and respect through a fun fitness curriculum with their parents.
HVMAC offers the ‘Jumping Joey‘ program at our Morisset Centre.
The Jumping Joey curriculum is designed for parents and toddlers to develop a lifelong love of physical exercise, exploration and learning together. Each class will explore basic motor and social skills, increased physical strength, flexibility and coordination by employing introductory martial art skills and fitness concepts. Awareness of spatial and perceptual concepts, self-expression and a greater independence are encouraged and celebrated.
HVMAC took on the Kinder Kicks program in 2014 as a way to provide a class for children too young for the Minimites program. We firmly believe that martial arts is a beneficial sport for children of all ages and Kinder Kicks is excellent entry program for pre-school children. Once children are ready, they are able to join our Minimites program, which is designed for 3 to 4 year olds, and continue onto our Kindymites program for 5-6 year olds.
Kinder Kicks is a 10 week, term-based program and classes run for 40-45 minutes with limited class sizes.
When: Wednesdays @ 9.30am to 10.15am at Morisset.
What to wear: The class has a lot of parent involvement so both students and parents are asked to wear comfortable clothes they can move in (like gym clothes).
Class size: Classes are limited to 10 students so register your place ASAP. If we are out of spots for the current term, please ask about next term as we can register your place in advance so you don’t miss out.
