What will my child learn?
Your child will learn a solid foundation for self defence in a safe, fun manner. Children learn discipline, control and how to achieve goals. Other benefits include improved self esteem, concentration, and general wellbeing.
Your child will learn kata from traditional Japanese karate, training drills from Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jutsu and modified Kudo sparring.
Bullies target children who lack confidence and self-esteem. Children who have self-confidence are unlikely to be victimised. Children will gain confidence by successfully achieving a series of goals and building their physical and mental strength. Children will also learn physical techniques to defend themselves if they are bullied.
How are children’s classes different from adult classes?
Children’s classes focus on fun and safety, with a strong emphasis on defensive techniques. Children are not taught dangerous techniques.
At what age can my children start?
Children of school age may join. High school students may join either the children or adult classes – or both! Parents are welcome to participate.
