“Karate Kids”, offered at 9am on Saturdays, is a program designed for children ages 5-10 using games and developmentally appropriate activities to promote fitness, introduce basic karate techniques and encourage character building.
Each class is begun with a warm-up segment where children are given an opportunity to lead the class if they wish. The students are then assigned to small groups to work with an instructor who introduces and reinforces basic karate techniques using materials and equipment that make learning fun. Games such as Simon Says, Red Light/Green Light, and the Noodle Game are utilized to further reinforce techniques.
Students who begin in the “Karate Kids” program are slowly transitioned into the regular beginner class based on their readiness.
