Designed to be fun, practical and safe our kids karate classes teach students the fundamentals of martial arts with the main focus on self-defence and self-discipline. Students will have a comprehensive syllabus to learn which will increases in difficulty as progress through the grades.
Our kids karate classes include group activities to promote team bonding and teamwork allowing students to improve their leadership skills along the way. We also use games to liven up our classes. Each one relates to an aspect of martial arts and is designed to improve the childs development.
OUR CLASSES PROMOTE:
RESPECT & DISCIPLINE
Kids that attend our karate classes learn the importance of respect and self-discipline from the start of their training, learning to follow instructions given to them, learning to control their enthusiasm and focus on the techniques. This leads to students becoming role models inside and outside of class. The kids also learn that karate is not to be used to hurt people at school or outside and is only to be used as a form of self-defence.
Due to our well researched and refined syllabus set for each grade, students are able to set and surpass regular targets and milestones leading them to experience a sense of accomplishment that bolsters self-esteem and instils a positive "can-do" attitude. Given time, children start to build confidence in themselves and form a trust relationship with their fellow students which helps them at school and with their social skills.
Our students are taught that karate is only to be used as a means of self-defence and protection. The philosophy of karate is that the first move is a defensive one not an attack.
MayoShinDo karate classes are great for helping children improve their all-round co-ordination with various activities designed specifically with co-ordination in mind.
Students will gain from improved levels of focus and attention due to learning to focus solely on the task given to them and not be too distracted by what other students are doing.
MayoShinDo karate will help your child to improve balance, flexibility, strength and all round general fitness.
