Ages 4 to 6
Research tells us that most of our personality is formed by the age of six. Karate can positively contribute to a child's personality by developing a healthy attitude towards themselves and others.
Positive Attitude - Karate can contribute to a positive attitude by teaching courtesy, teamwork and fair play, while instilling a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.
Coordination - Our Tiny Tots program is designed to meet the needs of younger students by developing their attention span and coordination.
Classes - Classes are serious, but they are also entertaining as children learn discipline, Karate tradition, teamwork, balance and control.
Fun - Our martial arts drills are kept simple and are interspersed with skill building activities to keep the children focused and enthused.
Ages 7 to 11
If a child is to become a productive adult, it will be because they were trained to meet and solve the problems of growing up.
Self Confidence - It does not come naturally for many children, but rather it is developed over a period of time. As a child accomplishes new goals, their confidence level increases. Children become more self-confident in karate because they progress individually at their own pace and are not judged against others.
Coordination - Our karate program provides vigorous physical activity that trains and coordinates all the muscle groups, improving balance, agility and strength, leading to confidence and self respect.
Self Defense - Parents worry about their children's safety on the street, yet many kids' biggest worry is other kids. Our program teaches children to think instead of panic in serious situations, as well as how to handle the neighborhood bully.
Fun - Karate provides a fun way for kids to burn up excess energy while instilling traditional values of discipline and respect.
