BUILDING WORK ETHIC
The values and principles of Karate make it especially useful for cultivating work ethic, confidence in kids and youth. The fundamentals of training in Karate involve mustering up the courage to make mistakes, keep going and continue to apply work hard. As a result, your child will witness first-hand how their effort leads to progress and ultimately great achievements.
Most importantly, Karate training will show your child that they have the capacity to learn and grow, regardless of mistakes. Karate training offers them achievable goals to work toward and encourages them to have a mindset of continual self-improvement.
This is really the most important aspect of traditional martial arts training, for kids and for adults: To aim towards ones greatest potential knowing it can never be reached, and to enjoy the journey along the way.
FITNESS AND LEADERSHIP
Class training develops many types of skills. Each class involves a warm-up and stretch which exercises all major muscle groups. Kids are often encouraged to lead the warm-ups and stretches in order to develop leadership skills.
Each class also involves partner work that requires being careful and considerate towards others and works to reinforce good social skills with a sense of humble yet solid self-confidence.
