CHILDREN’S (5-6 YEARS) AND YOUTH (7-11 YEARS) KARATE
Karate is a complete, all-round, balanced sport that stimulates the mind and body to assist in a child’s physical, mental and educational development. Karate is completely safe for kids and can be started as early as 5 years old. It stimulates coordination and sense of fair play in a way that helps a child grow into a healthy, responsible individual. Martial arts, and specifically Karate can play a central role in a child’s education (not just in sport) and positively reinforce character development. Practising Karate actually helps a child with self-appraisal, self-esteem and self-control through learning simple yet effective rules and enjoying a vast range of experiences (relationships with fellow karateki, the Master and sports instructors, competition experience and experience dealing with other kids). Let’s not forget that it is simply great FUN!
