    • Kid’s Karate Classes

    • Karate is a wonderful way for your child to acquire balance, coordination, agility, fine motor skills and self-confidence. He or she will also learn the wonderful life skill of self-protection. This includes learning assertive behavior and verbal self-defense skills to protect themselves from bullying at school, and also "stranger danger" skills like awareness and escaping an attempted abduction.

      With all the sports out there competing for your child's attention, why karate? Parenting.com calls martial arts training for kids "a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus. Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that's a myth, according to experts. The martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids...

      Progress is often marked by the belt system, which takes the beginner from a white belt through a variety of colors until black. Testing for each new level, generally every three months, is a good exercise in setting and achieving goals.

      But, say experts, it's the respect kids learn, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, that can be the most important benefit: It often carries over into school, helping to improve behavior and even grades, according to recent research."

      Our kids karate classes are available Monday through Thursday, and kids can come once or twice per week. Kids ages who reach an Orange Belt level and come twice per week are eligible to participate in our Black Belt Club program. Black Belt Club students get the option of wearing the Kaizen Karate Team Uniform, which is red, black and white (instead of the traditional white), and attend one regular class during the week (Monday-Thursday) and Black Belt Club advanced class on Friday nights from 5-6 p.m.
