Teen classes at Quantum are open to students ages 11–15 who are training in either the kids or adult programs, as well as parents who are seeking an opportunity to train alongside their kids in the same class.
Older students from the kids program will find an opportunity to practice their martial arts in a more serious atmosphere during a dedicated class with their peers. While the kids class begins with an obstacle course and includes a generous amount of both structured and unstructured play time, the teen class gets right to work, focusing on martial arts technique instruction, partner drills, no-contact sparring, and forms practice. Teens will also have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, as they will be shown how to teach basic techniques and support younger learners, then be called upon to serve as mentors and leaders when attending the kids classes and belt tests.
Younger students enrolled in the adult program will also find that the teen class offers training at a pace that suits their unique needs. The stretching and calisthenics that accompany the teen class are designed to be accessible to growing bodies, and the instruction is tailored to the needs of this age group. Small class sizes allow ample time for questions, in-depth instruction and breaking down of techniques, as well as a safe and respectful space for pushing off one another as they develop their voices, challenge themselves to take chances, and step into their power as young adults.
Our teen classes are currently offered Monday and Friday evenings, 5:30–6:30 p.m., and Wednesdays 4:30–5:30 p.m. New students interested in the our teen classes should first schedule an orientation with Master Evans, and one guardian must be present during your intake interview. Contact us today to set up your orientation and free one-week trial.
