FOR CHILDREN & PARENTS OF CHILDREN
- At the start of class time your child is expected to have their gi (bottom and top on) with belt. IF they are old enough (6+), they should be learning to tie the belt themselves. This is something they can learn to practice at home. For the first few times the Professor will help them.
- When class starts, the professor will let them know when they can take a break for a drink, usually after the warm-up. If they want a drink outside of that they are to raise their hand and ask the instructor.
- It is not uncommon for children to cry from time to time in class as they get use to the pressure, etc. Please let the professor and assistant deal with the situation first hand. IF we feel a parent needs to be involved, we will let you and the child know. This is the time you entrust with us to help your child grow and overcome their fears. Please let us do our job. Sometimes they cry because they lost a fight, or have a small injury, this is a time for them to learn to lose and reflect and a time for their teammates to comfort them. We would like the parents be there to presence the improvement of the kids, but please let the Professor give the tips and directions when they are sparring; many voices and many different information only will make your kid confused.
