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 don’t forget to practice your forms and endurance.


Lil’ Dragons:  Lil’ Dragons students warmed up with a run through the woods. They focused on the techniques Outside Block and their Toe Tap! To help with their Outside Block parents can swing a pillow at the side of students heads, students should use the back of their hand to block and stop any strikes that are coming their way! Keep practicing your eagle form and be ready to show off your Outside Block!
