The children follow a traditional Grading Syllabus, and when they pass their Gradings successfully they receive a Colour Belt. Karate is an excellent way to gain fitness, strength, flexibility and co-ordination. The physical benefits of Karate training will be seen after only a few classes.
Karate also helps to improve the discipline, concentration and manners of its participants. In order to achieve progress through the ranks, the children must show development in their character as well as their Karate technique. Classes run for one hour each week. A typical class will include an aerobic warm-up with stretches and strength exercises such as push-ups and sit-ups. The class will then work on basic techniques(Kihon) such as punches, kicks and blocks, sequences of moves(Kata) and basic sparring exercises(Kumite).
