Family Strong Sussex is on the cutting edge of nurturing children through every stage of development with the age-specific Martial Arts programs called SKILLZ! These programs help us target each student’s stages of development even more than before. Through scientific research and psychological developments, the SKILLZ programs provide MAXIMUM results in the Dojang but more importantly at home and in school!
Why do we say that the SKILLZ programs can generate maximum results?
An international study was done to understand the growth and developmental stages of children between the ages of 3 to 14. Children were evaluated on the Physical, Intellectual, Social and Emotional stages of development. From those results, a comprehensive format for Martial Arts education was created for:
- 3 & 4-year olds: Early SKILLZ
- 5 & 6-year olds: Basic SKILLZ
- 7 to 9-year olds: Core SKILLZ
- 10 to 14-year olds: Extreme SKILLZ
“What does this mean for my child?”
Our classes target your child’s skills and abilities even more than before! This means that our classes focus on the students’ stages of development to the point where each class will not be too challenging or too easy but just right! Our goal is to have each student leaving class feeling stronger and more confident!
How do we make this innovative concept work?
Our classes are divided by age according to the groups mentioned above. The SKILLZ Programs are an International Revolution, operating in over 8 countries worldwide. Created by child development expert, Melody Johnson, the SKILLZ programs are also endorsed by leading childhood psychologists as the best activity a child can participate in. In fact, no other sport or activity blends values with training as structured and comprehensive as the SKILLZ programs!
