Traditional Youth Classes

These classes are for all students aged 8-15 who are physically able to participate at this level, regardless of other special needs, and are taught in a modified traditional way.IMG_5490

The Core art is Burmese Bando, but the program is a true academy style of instruction.  This means that students will learn techniques and skill sets from other martial arts including Tae-Kwan-Do, Jiu Jitsu, Yang Style Tai Chi, and others.

The students learn drills, forms, and techniques as well as light contact, tournament style fighting. Full contact is not good for developing joints and so is not allowed until a student has reached age 16.

The rest of the instruction is the same as the Adult Classes.
