Child Friendly, Safe and Fun Packed Karate Classes for Children
Here at East West Martial Arts, we have a school that is extraordinary and our amazing Age-Specific Children’s Karate Programmes not only teaches children how to defend themselves… More importantly, it gives them the Life Skills they need for ‘Success in Life’ – From Confidence that they can turn ‘On’ when they need it in any situation, to Self Esteem so they learn to ‘like themselves’ and ‘feel good’ about their accomplishments, to Focusing, to Respect, to a Positive “Yes I Can” Attitude, to Self Discipline, to Perseverance, and Setting and Achieving Goals with the belt system, – Children emerge from our Martial Arts Programmes transformed and changed for the better, and parents couldn’t be happier.
Parents looking for martial arts classes for their children need to consider much more than just the cost or the style of martial art, and here are a few important points to consider… it’s not the style of the martial art you practice that’s important; it’s the instructor who can inspire and educate your children that’s important, and when visiting prospective martial arts schools you should observe a class in action, as all good instructors will let you watch a training session, especially for children, and if they don’t – the best advice is to look for another.
While watching a class, observe the interaction between the students and instructors very carefully as the students should seem happy and motivated, with plenty of smiling, sweating and learning going on with students grinning from ear to ear; as Martial Arts training should be enjoyed, not endured.
The classes should be structured, well run and professional, and taught by experienced Black Belt instructors who have been trained to work with children, who can teach with positive reinforcement and give students a ‘never ending correction with a smile’. It’s important to realise that there are no ‘bad’ martial arts, just ‘poor’ instructors, and the instructor who can inspire, motivate and excite their students, especially children, can teach very powerful and valuable lessons as they have the ‘Power of Influence’.
