KARATE TRAINING FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
 
 
 
 
Karate Kidz classes are based on martial arts training, but are perhaps better understood as being general physical preparation for future sports success.
 
It is hard for a child to learn the complex movements of a kick or a punch - or indeed any sporting movement - if they haven't first mastered the basics of running, jumping, throwing and catching.
 
This is why there is plenty of time spent in Karate Kidz classes developing these basic skills in a fun and dynamic way.
 
Very young children do not perform physical activity beacuse of competitive drive, but because it is fun! This is why most of the activity in a Karate Kidz class is games-based, albeit with a martial arts twist.
 
It is important to get children involved in organized physical activity at an early age. It helps improve motor control, kinesthetic awareness, balance, co-ordination, agility and physical confidence, in addition to providing a positive social learning environment.
 
These physical attributes, in addition to the psychological benefits of enhanced self-discipline, self-confidence and self-esteem, will enhance your child's life immeasurably in the years to come.
