KRU Junior Champions Prep (Ages 7 & 8),
New Jersey children's Muay Thai
This course was designed specially for children ages 7 & 8 years old. We realize that children this age have specific characteristics that differ from children younger and older than them. They are sharper and more focused than children 6 and under, however, they are still not quite ready to face the same challenges presented to children 9 to 12 years of age. Although some children between the ages of 7 & 8 can keep up with older children, and in some cases, surpass them, the average 7 & 8 year old can benefit from a more specific type of training that will help them develop the best; physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
The stages of development for children 7 & 8 years old have been studied. Research targeted 8 advanced skills that children of this age group are in the process of developing. Those skills are: Concentration,
Perseverance, Courage, Intensity, Speed, Agility, Technique, & Flexibility.
In the Prep Course program, your child will learn and grow in a process that accommodates their skills and abilities. They will train with other children in their age group, and not have to be distracted by younger or older classmates. This means that their training will not be slowed down due to the learning abilities of a younger child; and it will not be sped up to keep up with the capabilities of pre-teens. This means better, more functional classes designed just for them. Your child will feel comfortable and more capable of achieving excellence. They are at an age where the more special they feel, the harder they will try. With that in mind, welcome to the KRU Junior Champions Prep Course program!
