Our dojo has quite recently started kids classes. The children currently training with us are aged 5-8. I was just wondering, are there any games or excercises that you would like to recommend? What techinques do you usually do with kids that age in your dojos? Thanks a lot
There is a very good book written by Gaku Homma founder of Nippon Kan in Denver. He personally gave me a copy of all his books to share with everyone at our school. Of course since I am sharing I lent this one out recently to one of the students at our school who is teaching now. The book is called "Children and the Martial Arts". You will find games and exercises in it as advice on teaching children. I think everyone who teaches children any martial art can benefit from it.
