Give your child the "Gift of Success"
The Red Dragon Youth Program for 7-12 years is each Monday 5:45 - 6:30 pm, Tue 6:00 - 7:00 pm and Thu 6:00 - 7:00 pm. However, we are much more than a martial arts program. At Tulsa Kung Fu we have developed a specialized program for youth that combines physical training with life skills development.
Why Choose Tulsa Kung Fu?
Our programs focus on individual accomplishments and develop within our students mental and moral characteristics such as Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence and Self-Discipline. Tulsa Kung Fu members acquire leadership traits and a positive "I can do" attitude. We are the oldest Kung Fu school in Oklahoma with over 18 years in our current location. Master Ray Hildreth is certified by the World Organization of Wushu and Kung Fu Masters and with over 45 years martial arts experience is the highest ranking certified Kung Fu Master in Oklahoma.
Why is Tulsa Kung Fu Different?
We believe that the best learning atmosphere is a relaxed and friendly one, sort of a "family-like" atmosphere.
We believe that you do not have to "re-invent the wheel." In other words, the ancient masters created something that has stood the test of time. Kung Fu is still alive and viable in today's world; whether it is for self-defense, health maintenance or physical fitness as the training and techniques still work. For this reason we teach the classical Kung Fu sets that were created by the ancient masters and we believe in a similar code of conduct. Not in a religious sense, but we do show respect with a salute to our country's flag and to each other at the beginning and at the end of class. We value honor, courtesy and respect.
First, students go through an "Orientation" process where they are taught the basics such as: etiquette, terminology, theory, stances, blocks, hand formations, kicks, and strikes. This becomes the Foundation upon which they build their Kung Fu knowledge.
Kicking Drills and Hand Drills such as Blocking and Punching are an ideal way to enhance motor skills and hand/eye coordination.
Our Tumbling and Obstacle Course is a favorite among Academy students and is a FUN way of developing Coordination and Instilling Confidence.
Our "Star Chart" incentive/reward program helps to promote positive attitudes, good citizenship and a hard work ethic.
Age appropriate self-defense, how to deal with the school or neighborhood bully and stranger danger awareness is taught.
Our promotion system is based on the principal of steady and consistent improvement. Self-Confidence and improved Self-Esteem are developed through a series of winning experiences. Here is how it works:
- first set an achievable goal
- make a plan to achieve the goal
- persevere with the plan until the goal is achieved
- set a higher goal
The key is to make sure they succeed. How? We have a curriculum that is divided into small, achievable goals. When you set a goal, then work for it and achieve it, you begin to believe in yourself. Do that a few times and a person begins to feel successful and good about themselves.
Our specialized children's program will truly give your child a head start in life, all while having fun!!
