Hello AMAI Family!
In this blog series we will be posting reminders of what the students worked on the previous week. This could be helpful to make sure you know what you or your child should be working on while at home. If you need extra help on any movements or sections of the form then talk to your instructor about adding A Virtual Membership onto your current membership to unlock videos that breakdown every section of your form and every technique!


Lil' Dragons: 
The Lil' Dragons worked on the Snake form this week and the techniques we worked on this past week were their "Snake Blocks/Snake Search" and their "Crane Stance." To practice the snake search, swing a pillow at them lightly and have them block with their snake search in their dragon riding stance. For the crane stance technique, Lil' Dragons can stand in one place and pick up one foot and see how long they can balance. Keep up the good work and don't forget to practice the form!
