Karate for Kids



Kyoku-Kids, ages 4-7.  This is a non-contact, character building class designed to give the student all the benefits of karate training with-out actual sparring. Classes focus on the development of balance, strength, mental dexterity and attention span through an innovative series of dojo games, karate obstacle courses, problem solving and meditation. Kyoku-kids is an excellent preparation for a more serious study of the martial arts and very often Kyoku-kids graduates continue their karate training in our youth program.
