Karate classes for children and Martial Arts Lessons for kids
Kids' karate classes are our speciality. It's one of the most popular kids' martial arts programs at AGKK where we have many specialty kids' classes on offer every week. Your child will enjoy a fantastic, fun-filled class with others their own age, while developing strong bodies and character.
Our Karate for kids classes help children build confidence.
Children these days have a much more gadget filled life than we probably did at their age. In fact, children sitting hunched over a videogame or listening to the latest pop songs on their ipod is not an uncommon sight. If you too are a parent who feels that it's time your child made better use of their free time, then we have the answer. AGKK Karate classes for kids offers a number of classes in children's martial arts which promise to be fun and challenging for young minds, while learning good habits for a lifetime.
Karate as an After School Activity
If you're looking for an after school activity for your child, AGKK children's Karate classes offer so much more than day care. The time your child spends in our classes will benefit them in so many ways – academically, at home and socially.
Physical Benefits of Karate
- Self-defence skills
Mental Benefits of Karate
- Self esteem
Our "karate kids" are often more excited about going to school in the morning when they know they're coming to a class with us at the end of the day.
Our Children's Martial Arts Classes develop life skills, confidence and self-defence!
At AGKK, we understand that each child learns at a pace that is different and unique from that of another child. That's why our children's martial arts classes are held separately for beginners and for kids with prior experience. So no worries about your child:
– Struggling to follow the instructions.
– Or feeling left behind!
With children's martial arts classes, your child will experience a number of benefits such as –
1. Develop more self-confidence (a winner for life!) 2. Develop better self-esteem. 3. Learn a number of self-defence skills (Bullies, beware!) 4. Develop better body coordination and flexibility. 5. Have a more alert mind (better grades of course!) 6. Develop better concentration at school. 7. Learn how to respect elders (fewer tantrums!) 8. Learn how to listen to instructions.
Your child won't be a shy introvert who prefers to be left alone, anymore. Instead, you'll find that your child blossoms into a confident and brave child who is eager to learn!
Simply contact Bernie Sensei on 0409 474 494 and we'll arrange a Free Introductory Lesson for you. Let your child discover an inner focus & confidence today!
Karate Classes in Brisbane Split by Age & Experience
Age appropriate karate classes provide the right amount of fun, focus and challenge. AGKK Karate Kids are always excited for more. Our youngest karate students start at age four and progress based on age and experience.
We also have special beginners' karate classes for each age group. These allow your child to feel comfortable at any starting age, while training with other kids who are new to karate, just like them.
How Can You Enhance Your Child's Karate Learning Experience
The earlier you start sending your children to regular lessons at a AGKK Karate centre, the faster they will catch on with the Japanese techniques of Goju Ryu Karate. Nevertheless, most of our students are able to demonstrate key stances and moves they've learnt within the first 3 weeks of attendance. Also, a good time of age to enrol is 4 years and above.
Self Defence and Karate Classes – Australian Goju Kai Karate
The adult and children's karate programmes have been developed over more than forty years to include ethics and discipline of martial arts, self-defence techniques, and all the specific skills that are necessary to follow or participate in the martial art of Karate-Do.
For children, karate usually has a 'levelling effect' on a child's nature. An aggressive child will become more tolerant, yet still retain their great spirit, whereas a very subdued child will become more self-protective and outgoing. More importantly, each child develops an understanding of children with opposite natures to themselves, and thus can handle them appropriately with confidence.
Karate will promote physical development in areas such as coordination, agility, strength, flexibility, and endurance. The Australian Goju kai Karate the premier school of Martial Arts has a philosophy of promoting preventative self-defence, which is underpinned by our training methods.
