My daughter completed her first group class tonight and I could not be a prouder or happier mama right now! Heidi Burmann and Raquel made Lily feel welcome and were so patient with her as she was learning the kicks and routines. I am so happy that we discovered a healthy and fun new hobby for Lily! If you are looking for an affordable place where your little one can learn and grow then 4GK is for you!

Everyone knows I have been on my own little health journey creating Our Mommy Movement and finding new ways to exercise. I signed up for kick boxing classes through 4GK and am really excited to try them out! Seeing how patient and kind the staff was with Lily I don’t have to worry about being surrounded by people who will judge me while I try to keep up with the moves.

Great school and awesome team! Everyone is extremely friendly. My nephew Sebastian just loves his Extreme Skill class and after watching the team work together, I decided to try the kickboxing class. Frank put the entire class through a great workout! I can't wait to lose weight and build muscle. It's just the change I was looking for! Thank you 4GK!

Great school! Adult kung fu classes are approachable for all levels. You will learn a lot and you will work hard. Sifu and your fellow students will help you to improve and you will make great friends. Kickboxing classes will also kick your butt. Women, train here, you are welcome at all classes and the atmosphere is friendly and supportive.

This has always been a home away from home! Very much a family, and I have been part of this system for 18 years! Great values, hard work, and many lessons to be learned every time, which I have taken with me in the ring, and in everyday life! 5 Star recommendation!

Social Stages of Development of Preschoolers and How Martial Arts Can Help

We can all agree that social cues are extremely important. It is also important to understand what to expect from children when it comes to their social stage of development. Each age group is quite unique but there are some expectations that are common amongst the Early SKILLZ age group.

Typical issues with behavior amongst the 3-4yr old age group often include challenges with physical contact with peers, a lack of focus when others are being distracting, as well as, whining or constant complaining when they don’t win are aren’t chosen to “go” first.

Our Early SKILLZ Martial Arts Instructors recognize that this is typical behavior for 3-4yr olds! Instead of forcing them into an environment where they are commanded to conform, our instructors realize that for best results we must nurture these behaviors for lasting growth.

Throughout the course of the Early SKILLZ program here at 4GK Martial Arts, our instructors will help guide them to make better choices when it comes to “contact” when they get frustrated or overly excited. Through the use of game-based learning we will also be able to set them up for success by providing them with opportunities to choose to have the best discipline possible, even when they are excited. This will result in a more concrete understanding of how to better focus in future distracting situations.

Our martial arts drills also reinforce important social skills like sharing with their peers! Our instructors also understand how to coach the preschool age group in a manner in which the student learns that it is “ok” and sometimes “cool” to not go first every time.

At 4GK Martial Arts we use the knowledge provided by SKILLZ to understand these Social stages of development so that we may better serve you and help your ninja become the best version of themselves!
