The Super Six
All of our junior classes are age and ability (belt) specific. Each class is named after one of our Super Six characters: Tiny Tigers, Tigers, Cranes, Mini Mantis, Mantis & Dragons. Every Junior class includes Kuk Sool Won™ syllabus material, but the detail is differentiated to suit the needs of the class. For example, Tiny Tigers classes focus on listening and concentration skills through the medium of martial arts. Dragons classes provide physical & mental challenges for the advanced students.
All Junior classes follow our 10-Week Learning Programme. This programme ensures that every student has covered the syllabus material for their next belt level at least twice between testings. Of course students training more than once a week have more opportunity for cementing their learning. Instructors also use this programme to incorporate additional physical martial arts skills in to every class.
CMAC’s Stars board in Reception displays every Junior student’s photo. Each coloured section of the star represents the number of ‘patches’ a student has earnt e.g. White Star = 5 patches. There are also personalised booklets for students to tick off these patches.
One week of every month is ‘Patch Week’; where students learn how to perform a specific martial arts skill. Students are awarded the skills patch at the end of the class if they have achieved success.
Each month students are also encouraged to show the ‘Word of the Month’. These are different character qualities. Unlike skills patches, these badges are awarded to one student from each class who has best demonstrated the character quality. We ask parents to give us examples of when students have shown these qualities at home or at schooPatches may only be sewn on T-Shirts, not on Uniforms. Stars can be collected from Reception.
