Karate For Children
It is natural that parents are afraid that their children will get hurt during the training and mistakenly fear that Karate supports aggressiveness. We can assure you that, due to the discipline that we demand in our school, no random aggressive behaviour will be tolerated. Risk of an injury is low as we have clear guidelines for the training lessons and apply a hands-on approach with all students.   Karate can essentially influence the development of a child. The demanding training supports the building of muscles during the growth period. The child learns to cope with more strenuous physical demands and will develop a deeper concentration .   Those who practice Karate regularly develop better and quicker reactions, strengthen motor skills and have a more focused attention. The child learns the right techniques for self-defence with hands-on fights.   Children also learn, through partner training, about fair play. In sport competition, whether through weekly training activities or semi-annual belt tests, the healthy desire for success will be stored in the psyche of a child. And, last but not least, Karate is a lot of fun!     At What Age Can I Start With Karate?   The minimum age is 6 years. You can start any time with Karate.
