The Shire Martial Arts Big Dolphin's program has a 7-10 yr old age specific curriculum. Unlike the younger Little Dolphins, who have an attendance based curriculum, with their own special belt system, the Shire Martial Arts Big Dolphin's are actually beginning their journey towards becoming an International Black Belt.
We teach kids about:
How to learn
Respect for Self & Others
Building self esteem
Being responsible for one's self
Each month students undergo a 'Tip Test', where their skills from our syllabus are assessed.
Here's how it works: At the end of class, each student receives a black attendance stripe or tip on their belt, which accumulate over a month. This qualifies them to be assessed for a Tip Test.
Big Dolphins are also required to demonstrate that they have good behaviour and attitude at home and at school.
Once they've been given the green light to move forward, the student then moves up to their next coloured belt. Kids and parents alike, see the benefits when their child has tried their best.
Throughout the program, this process is repeated. As they move through the Big Dolphin's belts and levels, their skill set is increasingly challenged.
Before long, Big Dolphins graduate into our Junior Black Belt Program.
