Curriculum
Adult and Teen Programs
Our curriculum in our Adult and Teen programs focuses on the student's rank and required techniques for that rank. Students are divided by rank to focus on that week's or class's topic area. The topic areas are:
Kicks
Strikes
Joint Manipulation
Grappling
Throws and Rolls
Weapons
Self-Defense
Fundamentals

Our primary goal in our programs is practical self-defense. Each techniques is taught with practicality and purpose. In our traditional class, each class is the blending of two topic areas with a difference intent or focus. Traditional students are required to know less over all techniques, but rather specialize on the application of those limited techniques in much wider settings. Teen learn part of the adult curriculum with a special emphasis on those techniques that are age appropriate and effect.
  Little Ninja's and Youth Programs
Our primary focus for our Little Ninjas is learning basic life skills in the context of martial arts and self-defense. Our little ninjas work on listening, balance, self-discipline, focus and team work. The techniques are designed to challenge our little ninjas while being fun to learn and practice. Little ninjas and our youth student’s curriculum as based on a rotating curriculum, so all the students are learning the same technique regardless of their ranks. The advanced student need to learn the basic techniques as well as more advanced techniques.

The youth program learn a subset of the teen curriculum for easier transition as they move into that program. A feature of our approach is that we can teach a mixed class (Little Ninjas, Advanced Little Ninjas, Youth and Advanced Youth) if needed (though we segment them up), as each student share techniques. This makes our teachers more efficient and our students have common focuses, so even siblings in two different programs can share common elements.
