Children in the Martial Arts
Ages - For children who are aged 5 and above and have already started Kindergarten, here is a little general information about getting started in the martial arts at Karate International.
Curriculum - We teach an age specific curriculum and also teach by experience level. We work hard to keep a good ratio of children to instructors. In most beginner classes we have between 5 and 8 children. We will always have at least one instructor and most of the time two. If we go over 10 children we automatically add an extra instructor. The amount of children in the class varies greatly because we don't make the parents choose a particular class. They can come to any class labeled beginner. Your child will be in classes with other children of his or her age and experience level.
Building Character - Most importantly, in our classes we work hard to build their confidence and self esteem while teaching them an art that will give them the body reflex to take care of themselves if the situation every arrives. Our instructors teach because they love to teach. They teach because they want to work with your children and bring them along in a program that will give them the confidence to be leaders and the physical skills to defend themselves. Each class is a great workout for your child and a positive learning environment.
