GFM Junior is Ground Force Method’s way to teach movement to children, naturally, creatively, and reflexively. We use many of the same movement patterns as we do with adults, but we organize them differently and add shorter more dynamic sections, tailored to the specific age group.
GFM Junior presents logical progressions from the ground up, using exciting games and short flows, while adding games, GAIT patterning, and attending to the emotional and social needs of children and adolescents.
The skills test is on the last day of the course in order to successfully complete your GFM Junior Certification. If unsuccessful on the testing day you will have 30 days to send your course instructor a retest video
