Re: Im beginning my Kids Class

Hi !

In our dojo kids classes are 90min. ages are from 12 to 16 years.
We do ca. 30 min. warm up ,this makes it possible to do 6 techniques in depth.

This age group can focus all 90 minutes , but younger kids can't focus more than 60 minutes,
and you have to allow some kind of playing with the younger kids.

We used to have 60 minutes classes but that just wasn't enough to progress,at a satisfactory rate.

We make a 2 minutes break halfways , so everybody can have some water ,this a very good idea, as the often don't drink water in school and are slightly dehydrated when they come.

Good luck to you.
