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! As we continue our summer quarter, make sure practice your new material to prepare for an amazing quarter!


 

Lil’ Dragons:  Lil’ Dragons students warmed up with a partner workout. They focused on the techniques Eagle Jump and their Drop Stance. To help with their Drop Stance parents can hold their arm out at their students shoulder level so students can use their arms as a limbo pole. Students should use their Drop Stance to duck under and push up for a fun game of Kung Fu Limbo! Keep practicing your new eagle form and be ready to show off your Drop Stance!
