Ages 4 - 7 years, beginner classes involve lots of fundamental movement patterns to help to build confidence and develop self-awareness and physical fitness and movement literacy.

The session involves lots of safe falling, tumbling, trips, holds, and escape techniques as gentle introduction into the sport. Most importantly is about having fun engaging children in sport and activity for the long term.
