AIK Youth Black Belts
For children 4-7, the Kenpo Youth Program teaches basic concepts of discipline, fair play, and personal safety in a setting of fun and challenging activities. Emphasis is placed on reinforcing the good habits of exercise and behavior, as well as teaching safety awareness.
The students are given a simplified understanding of Kenpo skills that they can build upon as they move through the program. Students can set and achieve goals as they move through the charted belt system
