Karate can be a fantastic learning aid for youngsters as it develops within them certain aspects. Karate training has been scientifically proven to enhance the brains performance levels.
Youngsters learn better in a disciplined and well structured environment. To begin with we will motivate and provide the discipline but the objective for us is to teach youngsters how to motivate themselves, develop self-discipline and show them the many rewards of having a consistent positive attitude towards hard work.
We see youth Karate as a three way partnership between the student, the parents or guardians and ourselves, which requires commitment from the student, support from the parents or guardians and correct instruction from ourselves.
Q. What is different about your tuition?
A. We refer to our Karate as the art of SELF DEVELOPMENT. We work on developing youth character social integration along with self discipline, self motivation, awareness and a positive mindset. These attributes are much more valuable in today’s society.
Q. What about the physical training; I want my child to be able to protect themselves?
A. Traditional Karate training is specific and requires students to learn movement which at first is unfamiliar. All youngsters are able to learn this with a correct positive attitude towards their training, which is why it is so important to develop a strong character, a determined and focused mind. Karate technique developed this way is the most effective.
Q. What is the youngest age you will train a child?
A. If a child is able to listen to instruction and then demonstrate the ability to follow with the physical interpretation, then they can join the class. We are always willing to give a child an assessment for suitability.
Q. What’s a typical lesson?
A. It will always begin with a proper warm up with stretching and strengthening exercises. We break the teaching down into 3 main areas.
•Basic Kihon (Karate techniques)
•Kata (forms) and/or Kumite (sparring)
•Agility tests and team building games
We run clubs in both the Derby & Coventry area. You are more than welcome to either turn up on the day and watch, or they can join in. Please contact us if you require more information. If you require a timetable visit the ‘Clubs’ page.
