Our Reality Juniors programme is for students aged 7 - 12. Whilst having fun and working towards their black belt we also take them through our skills for life programme. This programme is aimed at helping them achieve outside of the Dojo the same standards they work towards whilst training inside the Dojo. Some of the areas covered include concentration, confidence, respect and personal safety all within a fun, friendly and family enviroment.
We encourage our students to strive and achieve better for themselves in their everyday life. To help encourage our students in their efforts whenever they get an award for anything at school or for a sponsered walk etc we will award them an achievement card, once they have gained 3 achievement cards they can then select a prize for their efforts.
Way of Life. Students are told that Martial Arts is not just a lesson each week, but a way of life, and we work with Parents and Teachers to help each child become a more rounded person. We request regular feedback and students are told that they must behave at home and in the Academy if they want to be able to go forward for their next grading.
Getting used to Earning. We also tell them that their belts cannot just be bought that they must be earned. After each grading we have a Presentation Ceremony when families and friends are invited to attend with their cameras to capture the moment. Students are reminded to respect their families, and thank them for allowing them to take part in Reality MASD.
