The Payoff of Age-Specific Programs

When it comes to the development of children, it can be challenging for parents to figure out the best way to navigate constant changes in needs. With age-specific programs becoming increasingly popular, parents may be wondering if it’s worth the potential hassle of having to deal with shy, crazy, mean, or rude kids. But according to experts in child development, the benefits of age-specific programs far outweigh the potential drawbacks!

Not only can age-specific programs help kids learn better and more effectively, but they can also help them develop social skills and make friends. When participating in an age-specific program, such as at Glens Falls Karate Academy, kids are surrounded by peers of the same age and experience level. This provides a safe learning environment where kids can ask questions and make mistakes without fear of judgment or ridicule. Kids can also interact with each other in a way that is more beneficial than being in a mixed-age classroom.

However, some parents may be concerned about the potential for kids to be shy, crazy, mean, or rude in age-specific classes. But experts say that this is actually less likely to happen in an age-specific setting. In mixed-age classrooms, kids can use their age or experience level as an excuse to be mean or rude to other kids. But in age-specific classes, kids are held to a consistent standard and are more likely to learn how to be kind and respectful to each other as they progress.

At the end of the day, age-specific classes can be a great way for kids to learn, make friends, and develop social skills. So, even if parents may be hesitant about the potential for shy, crazy, mean, or rude kids, the benefits of age-specific classes far outweigh the potential drawbacks!

About our programs

Early SKILLZ
Preschool - Kindergarten

3–4 year-olds are naturally curious. They might not be ready for the rigid structure of a traditional martial arts class ... but they do need to start learning about appropriate social behavior!

- DISCOVER -

Basic SKILLZ
1st Grade - 3rd Grade

It's often easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5-6 year old children. They're better at following directions and paying attention than younger children, but they still need some help controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.
- DISCOVER -

Core SKILLZ
3rd Grade - 5th Grade

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily - far more easily than we do as adults. Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, but they're also learning the value of self-discipline and respect.
- DISCOVER -

Junior Karate SKILLZ
Middle School Program

Karate may normally make you think of self-defense, fitness, and discipline ... the truth is, it's all of that and WAY more!
Our program helps our students build skills that they can APPLY to every area of their life and empower them to be the very best they can possibly be!

Teens Karate
High School Program

Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our dojo instead! Teenagers are smart and capable - but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations - and an opportunity to be their best.- DISCOVER -

Martial arts training is fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for adults. Studying martial arts is something that anybody - at any age or fitness level - can do. Our programs make learning fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for busy parents!
