Welcome to smart clubZ....
Smart ClubZ originated as an after-school club initiative aimed at introducing young children, ages 4-6* to some of the basic principles of martial arts in a fun, lively and safe environment.
These are not martial arts clubs, as we feel young children don’t understand the complexities of martial arts training and what it represents in terms of complicated practice and safety, besides, who wants to learn all that stuffy, disciplined marching up and down boring stuff when you’re four?
You want to have fun, play games and make lots of noise. That said, it’s still important to learn some of the basic values usually associated with a martial arts clubs. At Smart Clubz we use 3 important guiding principles known as RSF:
We encourage children to embrace and understand the value of respect, highlighting its importance in everyday life, at home, at school and especially at play.
Everything we do is geared towards the children’s safety, this means that instructors and coaches must recognise elements or conditions of unsafe play quickly and halt proceedings accordingly to address the situation. In many instances, because the message is key to all activities undertaken in Smart Clubz, the children will often highlight or address an issue of safety themselves.
*Children aged 7 years can start attending our standard martial arts classes.
