Self-Discipline, Real Self-Control, Respect for Self and Others
It seems that as parents we spend most of our time working, taking care of the home, and catering to the needs of our families.
It is important to have your own escape, a time when you can clear your mind. This is positive for both physical and mental health.
It feels good to get out and focus your attention on some exercise, while at the same time you develop your skills in karate.
Many of our adult students started out as a parent at the side watching their child. Others came in out of interest or because a friend told them about it.
Whether it be for fitness, self-defence, or just because it is a lot of fun, the benefits of karate training helps us in many areas of our lives.
Adult white and yellow belts
At this level, the focus is on the fundamentals consistent with developing a strong foundation in the basics of kicks,
blocks, punches and stances through the use of varied training drills, kata and by improving overall fitness. New students
are encouraged to train at their own pace and intensity level, so that they can develop their fitness gradually.
Exercise does not have to be agony, but rather fun and rewarding.
Adult - orange and higher (including black belts)
In this class, training is intended to challenge students with more complex activities. All belts are encouraged to
constantly strive for perfection of their basics. Kata classes are designed to allow students to work on the kata of their
level through both instruction and independent training periods. As the students progress, they are being prepared for their
black belt test some years ahead.
Testimonials from our students!
I feel that karate classes changed me and made me feel like I can do and perform challenging tasks. For example, if I'm at school and a teacher is asking for a volunteer, I respond without hesitations, and go for it. A challenge is something you take on, not shy away from. When I hear a challenge, I say “I’ll do it.” Before karate, I might not have done that; I would’ve shied away. But, since karate, I seek challenges.
