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 animal walks. They focused on the techniques Eagle Claw High and their Eagles Go!. To help with their Eagle Claw High parents can hold a toy just out of students reach so that students have to stretch in their hook stance to grab onto it. Students should use their Hook Stance to practice their balance! Keep practicing your new eagle form and be ready to show off your Eagle Claw High!
