This program is designed specifically for boys and girls ages 3-5 years old. In the Little Ninjas class, students learn and grow in a process that accommodates their skills and abilities. Training progresses at an age appropriate pace.
This age group is tireless, and the more special they feel, the harder they try! Through positive reinforcement, our students are capable of achieving excellence.
The Little Ninjas is structured on a rotational curriculum that teaches 8 very important skills. The 8 advanced skills selected for this class were broken down into specific requirements that each student will tackle at every belt level. This means your child will be sharper, more focused, and better developed physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially than a child who does not participate in a program of this design. Your child can start at anytime!
Skills reinforced in the Little Ninjas beginner class :
Focus/Concentration – Children learn how to focus all of their attention to the task at hand while committing themselves to learning and growing.
Perseverance/Teamwork – Children learn how to face challenges presented to them, knowing that the challenges will be difficult to complete. This teaches them how to face challenges alone and with peers.
Courage – Children learn how to overcome fear and anxiety through training that initially seems intimidating.
Discipline/Intensity – Children learn how to execute the skills that they are taught with strong effort and a positive attitude.
Coordination/Speed – Children develop improved speed, balance, posture, and technique.
Fitness/Agility – Children learn the mechanics that govern movement and learn how this plays a role in jumping, dodging, and moving about quickly.
Control/Technique – Children learn the fundamental components of good technique, making them great athletes with great sportsmanship.
Flexibility – Children gain and maintain flexibility through fun and educational drills.
Complete education and reinforcement of these eight skills will help your child be the best they possibly can be at any age of development. They will have fun, feel safe and learn valuable life skills.
Martial Arts is great for the mental health of children.
A psychological study found that children in Martial Arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents and guardians are looking to Martial Arts to supplement their children’s education.

What Parents Are Saying…
“It takes a special person to harness the energy and enthusiasm of a class of 4 – 5yr olds and the owner of Blue Life Karate, Durand Howard, is one of those kinds of individuals. This past weekend I personally witnessed Mr. Howard get a group of 10 young boys who seemed to all come in on a sugar high, to focus on the lesson and earn a coveted “Karate silly band” at the end of class. If you’re looking for a fun activity for your girl or boy that provides an opportunity to work on listening skills, gain some physical activity, and a feel sense of accomplishment, give Blue Life Karate a try! “

“Ruari’s school teacher made the following observation of his behavior: ‘During class, while working in groups, Ruari has regularly demonstrated a willingness to take a leadership role. Furthermore, when his peers do not fully understand a concept that Ruari has already grasped he will help explain to them with patience and care.’ Both Wendy and I believe this is learned behavior and is a direct result of his experiences as a Joshi in Blue Life.
