Karate for 55+

Our Karate for 55+ program is designed for men and women over the age of 55. Karate offers many benefits to adults of all ages and this program is designed to help mature adults take advantage of all of them, including:

  • Improve concentration
  • Increase overall energy levels and enhanced abilities in other activities
  • Improve balance, flexibility, strength, coordination
  • Increased anaerobic efficiency
  • Learn self-defense skills
  • Meet other active adults
  • Increased strength and flexibility
  • Increased stamina
  • Firm and tone your body

The program is unique from our regular Adult Karate Program in these ways:

  • Emphasis on gentle movement
  • Training without sparring
  • Greater focus on kata (choreographed forms that improve focus and concentration)

The 55+ Karate program includes:

  • Stretching, warm-up and cool-down
  • Individual progression: move at your own pace
  • Progress to Black Belt and beyond if you choose
  • Train with like-minded people
  • Access to all Fitness classes

Benefits of our Karate for 55+ Program:

  1. Karate allows people to work at their own pace, so there is never pressure to keep up.
  2. Karate is a low impact activity that works every muscle and bone in the body.
  3. Karate trains both mind and body.
  4. Karate offers a journey for all participants to embark on. We have students in their 70’s who have achieved their Black Belt.
  5. There is always reason for every person to learn self-defense skills to keep them safe.

See what its like to train at Douvris

what our members say...

“Our kid used to get bullied, and has never recurred since signing up. But the real benefit is that our child can now concentrate on school, not the negative environment associated with lunch hr or outside play. Brilliant, different kid since day 1.”
“If there’s any martial arts school out there that’s doing things right, it’s Douvris. I can honestly say that in all my years of taking classes here, I’ve never received anything less than the best service and instruction possible. Keep up what you’re doing because as it stands I’m proud to call myself a member of the Douvris family!”

Word of the Month: Focus

September 1, 2018

A key benefit of karate is the way it helps children improve their focus. Learning new techniques, mastering complicated fight sequences and sparring in a ring all require children to pay attention and keep paying attention, in a way they find really fun and rewarding. It’s a classic win-win situation.
