Children’s karate



At Zen-Shin we have a dedicated team of motivated instructors in Birmingham, building a strong foundation of karate techniques in our students setting them up for success in and outside of their karate training. Empowering students in all endeavours of their life.



The pee-wee’s karate programme focuses on improving younger children’s basic motor and listening skills. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. They will become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious towards the future. We believe the time between the ages 4 and 6 are the most important years of a child’s development. Our programme will enhance positive development in a fun and
motivating way.


Our children’s karate classes are designed to develop coordination, confidence, self-discipline, respect, self-awareness and social skills while learning martial arts. Our students soon have improved focus, listening skills and concentration during class which also helps them in other areas of their life like in school which boosts achievement throughout their education.

Our fun classes work on creating good listeners and physical all-rounders. At Zen-Shin it is definitely more than just kicking and punching. Character development is part of our programme where we give students opportunities to set goals and challenge themselves.

At Zen-Shin we have different classes for children depending on their age. The Peewees class is for 4-6yrs and Juniors class is for 7-11yrs. Children under 11yrs will be taken under a junior grading system which is relevant to their ability and age.

We host club competitions, and also give our students the opportunity to take part in local and international competitions for those that want to push their karate to the next level. We also have a leadership program for those who want to expand their skill set further.
