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 a fun run through the woods. They focused on the techniques Show Off Your Wings, and Crane beak. To help with the Show Off Your Wings parents can try to grab onto students’ shoulder. Students should use their Show Off Your Wings to block and prevent parents from grabbing on! Keep practicing your crane form and be ready to Show Off Your Wings!
