The Family Karate Center in Spokane is offering a Little Dragon’s karate class for kids 4 to 7 years old beginning this month.

“We haven’t offered the Little Dragon’s program for a few years,” says owner, instructor and 7th degree black belt, Gene Villa. “We decided to revive it so that younger kids and parents can experience the amazing benefits karate offers, including enhanced confidence, anger management, improved study skills, increased mental focus, non-violent conflict resolution and more.”

Little Dragons is offered two days a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:15 to 4:45 p.m. “I’ve researched the most effective ways to teach younger kids, and 30-minute classes two days a week is a great way to engage their interest, while not exhausting them,” Villa says. “I want kids to not only learn martial arts, but to truly enjoy it.”
