Hello AMAI Family!


In this blog series, we will post reminders of what the students worked on during the previous week. This gives you or your child ideas for how to practice at home between classes. If you need extra help on any movements or sections of the form, talk to your instructor about adding a Virtual Membership onto your current membership to unlock videos that break down every section of your form and every technique!


Lil’ Dragons:  Lil’ Dragons students warmed up with partner drills. They focused on the techniques Front Thrust Kick, High Block and Crane Stance. To help with Front Thrust Kick, High Block parents can hold up a pillow in front of students as a target for them to kick and then swing the pillow straight down for students to block over their head. Keep practicing your crane form and be ready to show off your Crane Stance!
