Does your 5 or 6-year-old need to learn self-discipline and emotional control?

The Basic SKILLZ program teaches young kids to be focused and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun, educational setting.


At times, it can be easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5 and 6-year-old kids. They’re better at following instructions and paying attention than younger kids, but they still may need some help in controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.

A Few Words From The Sensei

From Paul Manili

I’m Paul Manili, Chief Instructor here at Villari's Self Defense Centers.


As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.


But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.


Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.


It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.


With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.


That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.


And of course it’s a ton of FUN!


That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.


So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.


Thanks!

DOES YOUR 5-6 YEAR OLD NEED HELP IN THESE AREAS?

They lack the discipline to follow through on tasks without being reminded

PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…


Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. They’re intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.


Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Early SKILLZ program.

Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.

PHYSICAL FITNESS AND BALANCE

When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.


The basic martial arts skills taught in the Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.

COMPLEX MEMORY SKILLS

At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to tell their left from their right.


Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.

STAY IN CONTROL

EVEN WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE STRONG EMOTIONS


Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re sad or scared.


In our Basic SKILLZ program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP

Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.


In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.
