Kids Karate Ages 6yrs-12yrs
Karate is a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus, as well as develop self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention issues report solid success with participation in the martial arts. Progress in the program is marked by the belt system, which takes the beginner from a white belt through a variety of colors through black. Testing for each new belt level, generally every 3-6 months, is a good exercise in setting and achieving goals. Through the process of learning Karate, kids also learn the value of respect and self discipline. Developing important and necessary life skills through martial arts also often carries over into school, helping to improve behavior and grades. At the Canadian Black Belt Academy, our focus is on self-defense certainly; but more than this, the goal of our curriculum is to underscore achievement and responsibility, as well as to help develop responsible and contributing members of our community.
