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 animal walks. They focused on the techniques Inside Crescent Kick, and Cranes Neck.
