Children gain singing, dancing and acting skills which they then use through their play.
Little Ninjas classes consist of simple warm ups and stretching techniques, agility courses especially designed to stimulate the mind and to improve co-ordination and balance. As they progress we introduce different techniques such as kicks, punches and blocks. This is taught with a good basic understanding of respect for others, discipline and etiquette, which is vital at an early age and teaches them good values, which we hope will follow them through into later life.’
