The Shire Martial Arts Little Dolphin’s program has a specific curriculum designed to teach children important life skills, in a fun, exciting and inclusive manner.

We teach your child co-ordination, concentration, self control, focus, discipline and more, utilising a unique method we call Edu-fun.

Your child will learn MORE than how to kick and punch. They learn SKILLS for LIFE.

The Little Dolphin’s Program will keep your child physically fit and the group activities teach children the benefits of co-operative behaviour. Most importantly, the class curriculum encourages your child to try their best both in and outside of the class room.

Little Dolphin’s reinforces family values

Many of the lessons you are teaching your child at home, are consistently reinforced through class room discussions. Topics such as: self discipline, respect for oneself and others, following directions, team work, and much more.

Here’s how we help your child build confidence, learn to set goals and develop a positive outlook on life.

At the end of each class, students line up and receive a special stamp on their attendance booklet. When their book has 3 stamps, they receive a special stripe or ‘tip’ on their belt. The belt tips are an incentive and a recognition of their achievement. Once a Little Dolphin has earned 3 tips, they move onto the next coloured belt. (See our Little Dolphin’s video at the top of this page).

Little Dolphins prepares your child for life in the BIG world.

We teach your child to enter society with a confident and enthusiastic outlook and approach.

Little Dolphins become better school students, better listeners and are motivated to work towards their future goals.

Before long, Little Dolphins graduate into Big Dolphins and eventually, they will enter our Shire Martial Arts Junior Black Belt program.

Your child’s Martial Arts journey begins here. Book now and enrol into our 3 class Little Dolphins Introductory Program.

Little Dolphins Class Times:

4.00 pm – 4.40 pm Thursdays

The Little Dolphins Program: Getting Started

Your child’s Shire Martial Arts journey begins with our 3 class Introductory Program, which is a structured induction to help you get a good idea about:

  • The logistics of Martial Arts training
  • What it’s like training at Shire Martial Arts
  • How the Little Dolphin program works
  • If we are going to be a good fit

Our Intro Program involves your child participating in 3 classes.

They’ll be part of the main group, as well as in a smaller more personal group.

The idea is to get them comfortable with the environment, see if they can follow directions and to see if they are willing to try their best.

Then, once your child completes the Intro Program, you can then make an informed decision about taking the next step and enrolling them as a Shire Martial Arts ‘Little Dolphins’ student.

What is Personal Development for kids?
The focus of the Little Dolphins Program is not about sport. It’s about developing confidence, respect and resilience. We also help 4-6 year olds learn how to deal with stress and anxiety, as well as developing social cues, within the context of learning self defence.

Your child’s personal development begins as soon as you enroll them into our Intro Program. For example, no matter how excited a child may be at the prospect of trying out Martial Arts, the reality is that it can be quite daunting walking into the training environment for the first time.

Therefore, to help your child succeed it’s important to:

1. Watch the Little Dolphin video with them a day or so before they come (above).

2. After watching the video tell them;

“I want you to promise me that you’ll do 3 classes”.

“Then, if you have lots of fun, we can talk about getting you a uniform like the other kids. If not, at least you tried it and gave it a go”.

“Will you promise me you’ll do that?”

The Intro Program and young children
As mentioned, our Martial Arts programs are unique because they are based on personal development. This begins with the Intro Program. Please be assured that our friendly team members will see that your child feels included and supported.

What to wear and bring
Wear comfortable clothing, such as track suit pants, shorts, tights and t-shirt. We have professional Martial Arts mats and train in bare feet. There are changing facilities for your convenience.

Special Bonus
A) If you have 2 kids enrolled at Shire Martial Arts, Mum or Dad can train for FREE.

B) If you have 3 or more kids enrolled Mum AND Dad can train for free
