The benefits of studying Kyokushin Karate are many, but first it must be understood that karate is not a form of violence. With fun, cooperative workouts we strive to provide our students with the skills, energy, and confidence to pursue their goals. Through reinforcement of positive thinking, your child will gain mental and emotional strength and a strong, healthy body. The physical training involved in Kyokushin Karate develops coordination and increases strength, and flexibility, which is important during a child’s physical development.
Our Kyokushin Children’s Program is an exciting martial arts program that focuses on character development, physical fitness, and practical self-defense. Children enrolled in the Kyokushin Kids Program not only learn to protect themselves, but also learn the value of finding non-violent ways to resolve conflict. We teach children fundamental skills that will help them throughout their lives.
Below you will find additional information regarding our Children’s program – please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
In a safe and controlled environment, your child will practice light-to-no-contact freestyle sparring to develop timing and deal with the stress of an attack. This allows them to acquire self-defense and accuracy. They can safely practice their punches, blocks and kicks in an atmosphere of healthy competition and cooperation and learn proper sportsmanship. A sense of fair play is reinforced as all kids may participate regardless of experience.
Training for tests and succeeding at challenges enhance the child’s ability to concentrate, to focus and to plan for and triumph over learning hurdles. Your child will receive a handbook with the basic knowledge and skills required for their particular level to help them along the way. There is a written exam with each belt grading which is an excellent reinforcement of study techniques for school.
