- Early Skillz/Ninjas (3 & 4 years old)
3 to 4 year olds love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. With that said, a structured program introducing early skill-based training in Martial Arts can prove to be very successful.
The problem is many children this age have a hard time with structure in a group environment like what is commonly found in most Martial Arts schools. With Five Rings Jiu Jitu's Skillz program, the solution is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building skills that set them up for the next age group.
- Basic Skillz/Samurai (5 & 6 year old)
5 and 6 year olds are the most enthusiastic students. They love creativity and problem solving, which makes them ideal students in the Martial Arts. The problem we discovered is they are so progressive in following tasks, some teachers tend to treat them like their older peers. This is a problem because they still do not have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children ages 7 and up.
We have found that providing them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their social and intellectual curiosity while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing basic skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
- Core Skillz/Dragons (7 to 9 year olds)
Five Rings Jiu Jitsu's Core Skillz program for 7 to 9 year olds is what most people consider “the golden age.” They are proficient in their vocabulary and problem-solving skills, yet they are not at the age where they want complete independence from adults. This makes the teacher-student relationship stronger than ever. The problem we discovered is they still lack core skills, and although they are highly intelligent, they struggle to keep up with students ages 10 and up.
Our solution is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing core skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
- Extreme Skillz/Warriors (10 to 13 year olds)
The Extreme Skillz at Five Rings Jiu Jitsu are the smartest students in the school. Yes, they are smarter than most adults! They are also physically competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. The problem we discovered is they are so focused on what is socially acceptable that they have a hard time keeping themselves emotionally driven to the task at hand.
Five Rings Jiu Jitsu provides them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that nurtures their social and emotional instability while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing extreme skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
- Elite Skillz/Shinsengumi (14 to 16 year olds)
If your child is consistent in attendance, demonstrates proper behavior, puts forth great effort in class, he or she may be ready four our Elite Skillz program.
