Re: Little Samurai Warriors – how it links with SEAL and EYFS Development Matters
We are a martial art company called Kaisho Martial Arts Ltd and for the past 3 years, have been working on a programme called Little Samurai Warriors. The programme is aimed at children from foundation/reception to year 2 and has been running in a number of schools within Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

The format of the programmes gives pupils the opportunity to practice their listening skills – indeed, listening carefully is an essential skill if they are to master the techniques modelled on the DVD.

The information illustrates how Little Samurai Warriors will support staff in helping their pupils with both S.E.A.L and Development Matters.
Whilst running the Little Samurai Warrior programme, it was highlighted by a number of schools that they would like this programme to work in conjunction with their SEAL/PSHE curriculum.

The DVD also stars BBC TV Children’s Presenter Nat Roni who is widely recognised for presenting on Cbeebies.
