The focus of our child development program is to provide your children with the highest quality martial arts instruction available. This occurs in a safe and positive learning environment, a place where your child can succeed.
Absolutely every child develops in our kids’ Kung Fu class, whether it is growing in confidence, gaining discipline, improving physical ability or just making friends.
Tuition is age and ability appropriate, a specifically designed class structure that teaches more than just martial arts. There are two children’s classes each week aimed at age 7 to 13 years old. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the lesson or have the option to train as well if feeling brave.
There are many positive benefits your children will receive from practicing Kung Fu :
Health and Fitness
With children spending an increasing amount of time in front of a screen it can be hard to keep your child fit and active. Television, movies and computer games are now more accessible than ever. Kung Fu offers an alternative, gets them out of the house exercising regularly, and can grow to become a healthy activity they look forward to.
At class your child will meet and socialise with many children, potentially making a friend for life. In Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan you'll see strong friendships formed between students which continue into adulthood. Having a common interest and goals can bring people closer.
In London particularly, lack of open space, fear of crime, and persistent rain, encourages sedentary lifestyles. Children should learn how to move well from a young age. Our classes train agility and quality of movement in order to strengthen the body and prevent injury later in life. Without even realising, your child will quickly understand about correct posture and alignment, and they will never forget.
The challenging nature of this martial art encourages increased concentration and awareness. Parents report children being more focused in other activities as a result of Kung Fu. Regular training can lead to better academic and sporting achievements. The life skills that children learn at class will benefit them throughout their lives.
Respect and Discipline
Every child benefits from traditional values such as respect and discipline fostered within our Kung Fu school. We offer a fun and enjoyable environment that children respond well to. We have parents that bring their children to us for this sole reason and they are always extremely happy with the results. Changes in behaviour are often tangible within weeks.
Courtesy and Integrity
We all need to be reminded sometimes about adherence to some basic moral and ethical principles. What’s right and wrong isn’t always clear to young people. Simple things, such as being impeccable with your word, or don’t prejudice. Kung Fu teaches young children about courtesy and self control from the outset. Subduing the ego is encouraged, in Nam Pai Chuan we’re all equal.
Children can be faced with pressure and stress from a young age. We believe your child's confidence is a critical factor that will determine their success in life. Our approach will give your child the confidence and mental fortitude that they need when the going gets tough. Even the shyest kids will, with some help, develop a sense of independence. Our motto is “Strengthen the will."
Leadership is a valuable skill that can take your child far. From an early stage students are encouraged to support other students and assist with teaching when appropriate. As your child progresses they will be given more responsibility and become an important role model within the class. They will learn to share, and appreciate the value in goal setting.
The concepts and techniques your child learns will help them become better equipped to deal with dangerous situations in their lives. Our main focus is teaching them how to recognise and avoid danger before it unfolds. Combat and fighting are not the emphasis of children’s classes, the aim is to build a solid foundation of strength, flexibility, speed and finesse.
Martial arts can be very creative. Initially there is a well structured and defined syllabus to follow. However, for students who train diligently it is only the beginning. The way in which each individual grows and evolves will differ considerably. The art will ultimately become their art.
Our teacher is fully insured and CRB checked. He is passionate about martial arts, dedicated to your child's success and ensuring the best experience possible. His approach is unique and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart. You will see a level of care and attention that is unmatched elsewhere.
Our classes are varied and fun! The children enjoy them and always leave feeling happy. Many children have trained with us for years and continue on into the adult class. We're sure you're child will want to do the same.
Take the first step if you're ready to give your child the head start they deserve in life. Nam Pai Chuan Ealing will help your child become a well rounded individual by promoting social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.
