These classes are for all kids ages 5-12. We focus on positive reinforcements. Children learn “There is no first strike in karate” – Gichin Funakoshi. We help children to understand that karate is for self defense purposes only but that it is a lot of fun as well. Through our teaching and techniques, kids learn not only the moves in karate but also how to focus their energy in the karate classes and out so they can focus on things like school and increase their reading levels and math skills. We want to encourage each student to know that they can be their best and that they should be good role models in their community as well.
“Karate has always been there for me. This is where I made friends and I know they will always be there for me. I have friends at school but my karate friends are way better. Everyone at the dojo is like one big family and I love that. I don’t have any other sports that my team is like a family. Everyone there is supportive and lifts me up.” CN 12 years old
