SRKF Children's Programs
Silent River Kung Fu empowers children. Through our exclusive children’s programs, we develop the entire individual by instilling a strong sense of self discipline and respect. We accomplish this goal by keeping the classes as enjoyable as possible while exposing the children to activities that will prepare them for the future rigors of the art by enhancing their strength, balance, and coordination. Children training in our programs will benefit from an increase in attention span, focus, and self-control. These concepts are emphasized by our intelligent curriculum that includes: empathy training, anger management, peace education, dietary & environmental self defence, and project based leadership training. With our unique Badge Award System and Silent River Kung Fu Children's Curriculum, the children are continually challenged with new goals and rewarded when objectives are achieved, giving them important tools for success in all aspects of their lives.
3 - 4 years
A thirty minute weekly class that is orientated toward 3 and 4 year olds. Being held only once a week, Little Leopards are not expected to retain a lot of knowledge but they will develop a tremendous amount of confidence in themselves and a “can do” attitude.
5 - 7 years
The Tiny Tigers are 5 to 7 year olds who attend a thirty minute class twice a week. Tiny Tigers are taught to set goals and plot a plan to achieve them. Through hidden repetition, their techniques are refined and developed to prepare them for Silent River Kung Fu’s Yellow Belt Curriculum.
8 - 12 years
A fifty minute, twice a week class for children 8 years old and up. Black Dragons are ready to begin training in the full Silent River Kung Fu Children's Curriculum. Development of executable techniques as well as success in school and family life are stressed. Black Dragons are taught the concept of “Black Belt Excellence” which we use as a metaphor for personal excellence in all activities.
The Roaring Lions class is dedicated to children with special needs. These private classes are conducted with each child's specific needs in mind. The classes span between one quarter to one third of an hour twice a week. Roaring Lions develop new tools that assist and enhance their personal lives.
