Martial Arts Kids Play (MAKP), developed by Shereel Washington, is an exciting and fun program for children ages 3-5. MAKP is designed to, among many things, build imagination, drive creativity, teach active safe play, build body and individual confidence, provide self-discipline, and finally teach partnership & cooperation in problem-solving. Finally, it teaches basic concepts and approaches to martial arts through self-defense. In this program, children learn different games, some of which they may already have familiarity, that are structured and formatted as part of an organized program of physical, mental, and social development. This program has been featured in several local private and charter schools in the Bay Area. For futher inquiries, please contact us to learn more.
