Kids Karate

At the Deshi-Do Martial Arts Centre, our Junior programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of our younger students by developing their attention span and coordination. The classes are scheduled for 45 minutes each and it is ideal for our younger students to attend classes two times per week. The skills which are taught are kept simple so as not to confuse the children.   We work with a mix of self defence techniques of karate and Juijitsu (Grappling ), so the child learns not only to defend from a standing position, but from the ground as well.

Building confidence and skills with these activities and specifically designed to keep the child focused and enthused.  The Junior Programs will also prepare your child for our more advanced Children’s Martial Arts Program. In the junior classes, your child will be exposed to positive social interaction.  They will learn how to work with others and follow directions from the Instructors.  Our Junior School  Instructors are excellent role models who are trained specifically to work with pre-school children.

The following are some of the benefits from your child will attain from participating in the junior class:

FOCUS Improve listening and reaction skills.  They will excel faster in any outside physical activities they participate.  Your child will also become a better listener and a more focused student in school.

TEAMWORK A necessary skill for any young child to develop, in order to get along with and learn to communicate with others people.   The more confident your child becomes the more willing they will be to work with others.  Your child will develop a strong character, which in turn will help him/her make new friends and become a Leaders in life.

CONTROL Having control means making good decisions.  Once your child has learned to control their skills at handling a problem, they  will learn to make the right decisions.  Control builds confidence.

BALANCE A skill crucial best developed at an early age.  Your child is beginning to participate in many physical activities that are challenging, like football, netball, etc – our programs are designed that your child will develop a good sense of balance, as well as giving them a better posture.

MEMORY  It is a proven fact that exercising is a great way of developing a good memory, which will help in the growth of your child’s brain activity.  The sooner your child joins an exercise program like Karate, the smarter they will become.  Our drills are constantly helping your child think and make smart decisions.

SELF DISCIPLINE Is a very important part of all our lives.   Our Instructors use the junior program drills to help create the vision that self discipline is also fun and rewarding.  Your child will take pride in doing the things they know to be right and fair.  Your child will also be able to accept and follow directions better.

FITNESS It is important for children to understand the importance of being healthy and physically fit.  If your child does not burn off excess energy exercising, they will become frustrated and confused, which in turn will make them unhappy.  Exercise will burn of excess energy helping them to relax easier.

COORDINATION  One of the first things your child will learn is to understand the concept left from right.  This will help them become better physical participants in sports and activities.  The better coordination your child has the fewer injuries your child will sustain and the more enjoyment they will have, whilst participating in their chosen sport.  In our junior classes, we make learning fun and educational.

Our goal is to help your child be the best they can be at everything they are focused upon.  Our junior motto is “children today, leaders tomorrow” At Deshi-Do Martial Arts, our program will better equip you child with the attributes of  higher self esteem and greater confidence, in return make them less of a target for bullies.  We’ll also teach them specific ways to avoid trouble, and to overcome the ‘bully’ without having to resort to fighting.   Instead of teaching “sport karate” or flashy but empty “Hollywood Movie” techniques, we’ll give them practical and effective self defence skills that are appropriate for their age, that will last them for a lifetime.  Additionally, we cover a variety of life skills ranging from stranger danger awareness, how to introduce themselves politely, how to dial 000 and what an emergency is, how to say “NO” to a bully and mean it.  We teach them how to get parent’s attention without interrupting.
