Kids Karate Club
The Kids Karate Club is specifically designed for children ages 4-14 and focuses on safety, avoiding strangers and protecting oneself. This program targets many building blocks for children today: respect, self-esteem, building confidence, leadership and making good choices. This progressive martial arts program includes belt progression through Black Belt. The students will learn the basics in karate, self-defense, sparring, kata and children safety. Uniforms are required and can be purchased during the first class for $38. Testing and promotions (optional) for all belts will be held on the last Thursday of the session.
This class incorporates physical fitness, motor development, strength and flexibility. Students learn tumbling moves and rhythmic aspects of gymnastics while focusing on balance and coordination. Basic moves such as somersaults, cartwheels and walkovers are introduced. As the gymnast grows, the focus moves to skill development.
