Kids Jeet Kune Do Classes
Kids classes are about discovering self-confidence, learning to respect others, developing coordination, and finally about understanding the realities of physical confrontation. More than a simple self-defense class, this is a self-discovery class and our primary goal is to teach how to overcome your toughest opponent... yourself.
For both both boys and girls, classes are age-appropriate and exciting. The minimum age is 6 years old. Younger kids will enjoy playing games that teach skills while having fun. Older kids will be introduced to more physically-demanding drills and given the opportunity to assist younger students and share their experience. For kids classes, physical contact will be limited to punching and kicking pads and there will be no sparring. Parents are welcome to enroll in class with their kids!
Kids are expected to wear a very simple uniform including a JKD Colorado tee shirt (to be purchased after their first class) and plain black athletic pants such as kung fu pants or sweat pants. There are many places you can find these pants and we do not require one specific brand but you may purchase them using this link
Kids are expected to show respect to their uniform. Shoes should be in reasonably good shape. Because of the demands we place on fast-moving feet, proper support with quality athletic shoes is very important to prevent injury. Do not purchase "track shoes", which can be very slippery. Check the soles very carefully! Rub them against a smooth surface and make sure there is traction. Your kid will be slipping like on ice if the soles of the shoes are too smooth.
When purchasing new shoes for class, please leave the tags on the shoes and bring them to the first class to be checked by the instructor.
Bring with you:
Dedicated athletic shoes (read Shoe Policy)
