WHAT IS THE TDA KIDS PROGRAM?
TDA Kids Program takes a unique approach in developing our child’s confidence. It is very unique than the world of martial arts that many people are used to. There are no competitions or sparring, no “gi’s” or belts just jeans and TDA Kids academy shirt are worn for training and wrist bands denote rank. We have re-evaluated the problems kids face in today’s world and designed an anti bully/personal protection program to provide them with real solutions they can use. This is not a sport or game, its real life skills and abilities that will keep your child safe when you cannot be there! We teach a mixture of self defense and martial arts to you child from all levels of self defense and martial arts; standing kneeling, sitting and laying. A mixture of Ballistic 3, Kali, and Combat Submission Wrestling that goes well in todays real world problems.
The ultimate goal of this program is to get your child out of a “bad situation” and home safe each day. To accomplish this, we use a layered method of security. We utilize cutting edge verbal techniques to stop and de-escalate conflicts as an initial means of defense. To this we add the understanding of nonviolent postures and the preservation of personal boundaries. Lastly, we add practical and instinctive physical skills that provide the opportunity to escape a physical attack. We teach our kids not only how to defend themselves in various manners, but when to do so and what level of response is appropriate for a given situation. We believe a well rounded child, who has intelligent options to draw from; will do best in all aspects of life.
Our TDA kids program is built on the bond between children and parents. A great deal depends on the parental involvement. Therefore, during the class at least one parent per child should always be on the training floor, helping to hold the pads and assisting with the movements we are working on. We have seen how this builds the child-parent relationship because the child knows that mom or dad are helping them with something they enjoy. Being involved this way, gives the parent(s) an opportunity to continue practice the lesson materials at home. TDA Kids expands far beyond drills and lets you share with your children fun, fitness and learning.
WHERE DO THE KIDS TRAIN?
