CO-ORDINATION & MOTOR SKILLS

Karate offers significant benefit for supplementing the body with neuro-muscular equilibrium and biofeedback and is accredited to improve poor co-ordination/orientation issues, awareness of environment and body

FOCUS & CONCENTRATION

Practice emphases self-control and concentration. Attention is a key component. Kids learn to stay focused to learn and do the movements.  By its very nature student focus is reset throughout training– to get ready for what’s next.

SELF-DISCIPLINE

Kids classes are fun but they are built on the importance of discipline. For a child to achieve their next belt or learn a new move it requires self discipline to practice to the best of their ability. This skill can transfer across a lifetime - not only in sport, but work, family and life

MENTAL BENEFITS

Fundamental benefits include integration, social friendship, development of mindfulness and relaxation. Karate can stimulate an integrative relationship with positive mental health and the relationship this plays in everyday life, the sports atmosphere and sporting zone

RESPECT/ETIQUETTE

- cultivating a courteous and humble attitude -

In all areas of life, Respect is important to ensure a thoughtful and stress free interaction between people. Karate martial art etiquette is particularly important. It is a universally understood system, where correct behaviours can be followed in training alongside the importance to cultivate a courteous and humble attitude.

CONFIDENCE SELF-ESTEEM

Karate practice focuses on self-improvement. Students work at their own pace, earning a different coloured belt when they reach a new skill level, thereby measuring progress based on their own abilities and not comparative to others. This can boost self-esteem and motivation

COURTESY

Courtesy is a key behaviour for success in every walk of life. In martial arts training, attitude and demonstration of courtesy, under all circumstances and conditions, is an essential requirement. A focus on courtesy is developed in children’s classes and junior grades, and maintained through and including all senior grades.

OPPORTUNITIES

Karate is set to showcase as an Olympic sport in the 2021 Games in Tokyo thereby intensifying its popularity and practice.
