|Karate for kids
Karate is one of the best activities that children can participate in.
As a disciplined art, karate will help your child learn to accept
responsibilities, become more aware of their surroundings and to
develop greater concentration skills. Your child will learn karate
in a safe and friendly atmosphere where the emphases is placed
on practice and participation rather than on winning. All our
instructors are certified to teach karate by the SSU- USA and
have many years of karate experience that they wish to pass
on to the students. Your child will be treated with kindness
and patience to ensure that his/her karate training will be fun,
exciting and rewarding. The self defense aspect of karate is
unfortunately almost necessary for children in todays society
but you may find that it is secondary to the inner skills your child
will learn, such as self respect, patience, kindness and the
willingness to work toward a goal and not to give up on
themselves. These benefits will carry over to their schoolwork
as well as later in life for college and their careers.
|Karate for teens
Karate training is a fun way to exercise and is very popular among
most teenagers. The speed, power and effectiveness will appeal
to those teens who are looking for an active and exciting pastime.
Karate training will help you to look and feel great while learning
to defend yourself. As an individual sport karate provides a fun
way to exercise for those who may not feel comfortable in team
sports. Karate is one of the most exciting ways of getting in
shape and toning the entire body. You will not be bullied, picked
on or pushed around by anyone, and you will find everyone
involved in the karate program to be really friendly and helpful.
Many students have found lasting friendships through karate
and each student will be accepted and allowed to be their
own person. If being a Black Belt Instructor is one of your
