Ages 5 – 14. Parents may join with prior arrangement.
Skills include striking, throwing, trapping, grappling, submissions, chokes, arresting, weaponry and defensive theory and tactics.
Karate classes are medium intensity and technical. This is where you learn the ‘art’ in martial art. Participation in these classes is required for belt promotion.
