Jun Fan Jedi Juniors
Ages 4 to 11 years old
Parents, have your child train in the arts of the “Jedi” through the principles and concepts developed by Bruce Lee (Lee Jun Fan) but with a fun Star Wars theme. Your child will learn practical self-defense both empty handed and with weapons through the use of a foam padded lightsaber, utilizing drills and techniques derived from the Filipino martial art of Arnis (stick fighting art) and Jeet Kune Do. Our empty handed portion is based on Bruce Lee’s art of Jeet Kune Do and Wing Chun Kung Fu. Your child will become well versed in the basics all of these arts through drills and games developing their manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and self-defense skills. Beyond the physical, they will also learn confidence, concentration, discipline, teamwork, leadership and respect. Let’s not forget bully prevention, there seems to be a rise in bullying over the last few years and we teach our students how to deal with bullies non-violently but also arm them with the skills needed to defend themselves if attacked.
A portion of our class will be devoted to working on a choreographed show. The kids will be in costume and will showcase their learned skills by putting on a lightsaber show for parents and family members. The kids will use their creativity, teamwork and skills, to work towards a goal of putting on this show. At this age goal setting is an important skill that will benefit them later in life.
