What is personal Development for kids?
The focus of the Big Dolphins Program is not about sport. It's about developing confidence, respect and resilience. We also help 7-10 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 Big Dolphin video with them a day or so before they come (here is the link
2. After watching the video tell them; "I want you to promise me that you'll do three 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?"
