Why Teach Karate to Kids?
We believe that martial arts training is not only a way to learn how to defend oneself in a physical situation, but is a “way of life” that teaches self-control, discipline, respect, confidence, and mental focus. Especially for young students, we believe these are the skills that can help them handle difficult situations and avoid getting into trouble. The physical aspects of karate training provide a fun form of exercise that can help develop healthy attitudes toward fitness that can benefit them in karate and other sports as they grow older. And, to study a traditional martial art like Shotokan Karate involves the student a continuing pursuit of learning about its history, philosophy, and culture.
