Monkeys TaeKwonDo for Children Ages 5 – 8

Kids classes

Our Monkeys syllabus is TaeKwonDo for children aged 5-8 years, and follows on from the Dino’s syllabus. Students can equally start this syllabus as their first class though. We continue to work on key skills such as co-ordination, balance, confidence and life skills. We run these classes separately from our family classes so the group get the attention they need.

Dangerous moves are not taught to the children, but lessons are no less fun and exciting. Children gain self-esteem, confidence, learn discipline and increase their martial art skills and knowledge. They also learn vital knowledge to help stop bullying at school and combat stress from exams.
