Our Junior Karate classes for children aged 7-11 years, are designed to bring the best out of your child.
Each class is 45 minutes long. We typically start the class with a short meditation before starting our warm-up, stretch and continuing on with some Karate.
The lessons use Karate as a foundation to develop your child physically and mentally.
You should expect your child to become fitter, stronger and have improved coordination. We use our Zen-Shin syllabus to teach basic blocks, strikes and kicks.
But what we do is so much more than that. Karate at Zen-Shin is a way for your child to excel against their peers. Our structured classes reinforce discipline, respect and confidence in our students.
The ultimate goal is for our students to take what they learn in class, and use that to improve their lives outside of the dojo.
One example of this, is how we can get students to help with the stretch at the beginning of class. By getting them out of their comfort zone, many students become more than they imagined they could be. It is amazing to see students as young as 7 being able to lead the class through a simple stretch, using their voice confidently, and giving clear instructions.
We are trying to make great future leaders, not just Karate Kids.
We have children with all kinds of disabilities in our lessons. We believe that Karate can be catered for anyone, regardless of ability or level.
If you are interested in your child starting Karate, book a trial class now, and we look forward to seeing you in the Dojo.
