The kids class are a fun, dynamic and exciting class, teaching traditional karate with a focus on “threat level orientated” self-defence.
Core values such as courtesy, respect, honesty, perseverance, and discipline are some of the values studied in our “Ten-fold path to black belt”. Goal setting & positive visualization, along with techniques that calm and focus the mind, are an integral component of what students learn.
Children start from 8 years of age, this is the age that children can really understand the responsibility that go hand in hand with learning martial arts to defend one’s self. This is an important aspect to consider, as younger children cannot adequately comprehend this responsibility or the damage that the techniques they learn can do to another person.
At Figtree Kan Zen Ryu Dojo, every technique taught, right from the very first class, is entrenched with scenario based self-defence competencies. This is taught initially at low level threat responses, (escaping the situation without hurting the other person), & increases gradually with the skill, maturity and comprehension of the student.
Kids classes are held from 5pm to 6pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, during school terms.
