Karate is a discipline that helps children develop their physical coordination, balance, flexibility, and mental acuity. Karate also helps your child develop athletic abilities and self-awareness, which in turn enhances the child’s capabilities in self-defense.
Although Martial Arts are viewed mostly as a method of physical improvement, it is most importantly a precursor to mental and moral development.
All of the lessons are tailored to your child’s age and physical ability. Your child begins by practicing basic patterns and forms, which involve blocking, kicking and striking. Your child will be having fun in a safe and positive environment while making friends along the way.
An official Karate uniform is required for this class. You can purchase a uniform from the school (the pricing will be provided at the time of purchase). It takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks for the uniforms to arrive.
The monthly fee for these classes will be provided at the time of sign up and it is due by the first of each month; this payment covers 4 classes per month. Please keep in mind that some months have 5 classes and some have 3 classes due to school breaks and holidays (classes will average 4 classes a month for the entire school year).
There is no pro-rating for missed classes due to sickness or vacation.
