Karate Classes for Pre-K & Kindergarten age kids in Waukesha, Hartland

We are pleased to introduce “Excellent Kids”, our Pre-K & Kindergarten life-skills martial arts program! It features 12 important life-skills & foundations of martial arts taught within an age-specific curriculum that is fun & engaging. Excellent Kids gives your child the tools to succeed at home and in school.

Each week your child will build their confidence while learning life skills such as focus, teamwork, respect, and discipline. They’ll gain valuable awareness of their body through fun martial arts exercises & obstacle course challenges that build strength, agility, and balance. You’ll feel more comfortable knowing that they can act safely as they practice what to do when faced with a bully or stranger.

Each time we begin a new life-skills module, you’ll get to join your child on the mat for the parent participation portion when you’ll practice these life-skills in everyday situations. Your child will learn to look you in they eyes when you speak to them and to wait respectfully when you are on the phone. They’ll practice good manners by answering you with “Please” and “Thank you” and by doing things the first time you ask.

Your child’s self-esteem will grow as they earn a new life-skills stripe every couple weeks. As a parent, you’ll also feel empowered with the printed handout and Dojo Virtues Badge that you can use to help motivate your child to continue the learned behavior outside of class. Excellent Kids can help your child be their very best, by providing an environment where they Belong, Believe & Achieve here at American Dojo. We are grateful to offer this program to you!

Some would say that fate tried to stack the deck against Adam from the very start. The now 15-year-old was born with Down syndrome, and doctors found four holes in his heart that necessitated open-heart surgery on the infant.....
