Junior Warriors age 7-12

Junior Warriors (age seven to twelve) programme is designed to tech your child how to deal with a bullying and will give your child a foundation in Wing Chun Kung Fu Martial Arts

Junior Warrior programme is focused on life skills rather than physical fighting however ability to defend themselves is much more prioritised than in Little Dragons programme.  It is not long till your child will start to walk home from school by themselves, go for a walk with friends and play football in the park. It takes three years to develop a correct reaction towards any situation in the life, starting at age of seven simply prepares your child for teen’s life better giving him or her strong mindset about values of one’s health.

The Basic class is exactly the same as the Little Dragons class however expectation will be much greater and children at age of 7 will be introduced to complete 3 years Little Dragons programme on 8 month crash course. That is possible because Junior Warriors have developed balance, coordination and control and are able to remember more than just 3 – 4 movements in a sequence. They are better at multitasking and have a full awareness of their body movements.

Also weapon training is available for a Junior Warrior Black Belt students.

After the Basic Course, child will be invited to the Black Belt Class that introduces them with Wing Chun Fundamentals.

The class will start with a Black Bet Oath “I accept with - honour and privilege - the journey of fellow warriors - towards achieving - the Black Belt in Wing Chun. I do hereby swear - to uphold the standards of - honesty, - modesty, - courtesy, - integrity, - high moral code, - perseverance, - courage - and indomitable spirit.…”

After the Black Belt Oath there is a warm up phase that teaches children Wing Chun centreline punches, chain punches, elbow strikes, knee strikes and kicks. The flexibility exercises are implemented straight after warm ups.

Then we start the Wing Chun training that is based around the Theories of Wing Chun (like Centre line, wedge theory) and T.I.P. (Training incentive programme) stripe (Focus, Speed, Power, Accuracy, Intensity and Black Belt Excellence). There are 4 core topic we teach to Junior Warriors:

  • Striking techniques – palm strikes, punches, elbows, knees, kicks
  • Solo training – Footwork, Hand Shapes, Siu Nim Tao (Little Idea)
  • Partner Training – reaction drills (pad work, chi sao), sparring drills
  • Applications – dealing with kicks, punches, being pushed, grabbed, puled, tripped and being on floor.

These four topics are taught to children over 3 years of Junior Warrior Black Belt programme in 3 levels.

The Black Belt class is 30 minutes long however afterwards we have a Advanced Weapon session for extra 15 minute. Those children who have learned weapons previously in the Basic Class, once mastered the single Weapons, will be allowed to learn Double Nunchaku, Double Escrima and Butterfly Swords. Weapon training is designed to teach children how to perform in front of audience and develops child's respect towards others. There are 3 rules of weapon training:

  1. The child must ask a permission (at home to parents, at martial art school to an instructor)
  2. Child must make sure there is lots of space to train with weapon (we don't play with weapons as they are not a toy)
  3. Child is not allowed to hit anyone or anything.
