Why is karate so great for children? Because of the emphasis on focus, structure, self-control, and respect for others, karate training is a highly beneficial supplement to academic and social learning.
Our Program Teaches Children Discipline
Through creative instruction, children learn the art of Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate-Do. We have a staff of caring instructors who love to work with children but are also very clear about limits. We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school. In addition to discipline, children learn the principles of etiquette, leadership, effort, and commitment
Our Reward System Improves Children’s Self-Esteem
Each student’s progress is closely monitored and frequently rewarded. The belt system is the key to building confidence. When kids earn their belts, it gives them a strong sense of accomplishment that improves the way they feel about themselves.
Our Program Teaches Children Essential Self-Defense Skills
Children learn this ancient way for self-defense and focus in a fun and highly structured environment. While kicks and punches may rarely be used in real life, karate may help young people defend against greater dangers – those of peer pressure, alcohol, and drug abuse.
