Kids (7-12 yrs)

Kids Karate Program

Our kids karate program is designed for children 7 to 12 years of age. It provides a fun martial arts curriculum for beginners. The program keeps kids active and helps increase fitness levels, balance & co-ordination, concentration, and self-discipline. Emphasis is placed on goal setting and personal success, while teaching kids how to stay safe and avoid dangerous situations.

Our karate lessons will provide your child with a whole range of life skills, including:

  • Personal focus and concentration
  • Self-confidence
  • Courtesy and respect
  • Self-defense skills
  • Leadership and teamwork

Martial Arts and School Academics

Did you know that Martial Arts instruction has a unique ability to create grade “A” students? It’s no coincidence that a lot of our students bring home top marks on their report cards. Our karate lessons are designed to focus on a students’ development by improving their attention span, improving their concentration and helping them set personal goals. It’s essential for kids to learn these skills to help them succeed in their school curriculum. Our DOUVRIS karate programs practice these skills during our karate sessions. For example, each of our classes starts with a warm-up. During our warm-up we include a few moments of silence so that each student can reflect upon the activities from that day. For younger children, we start with just a few moments, and as they move to a new belt level, we increase the time so that they can learn to sit still longer and give attention to their thoughts.

Also during the warm-up we teach breathing exercises as proper breathing is not only important in sports but is known to assist in mindfulness in stressful situations. These basic mediation exercises teach children to calm their thoughts to help increase their ability to deal with the daily demands associated with tests, peer pressure and stress. Many therapists believe that people could handle stress and anxiety better, if they were equipped with good breathing techniques.

Our classes consist of doing drills, katas, games and other exercises to help children learn to improve their attention span and concentration. These small exercises are just some of the ways that a Martial Arts program can provide essential skills needed for a child to succeed in life. It is a great investment for your child’s growth now and for the future!

Karate is Great Physical Exercise

Does your child seem to have a lot of excess energy? Wouldn’t it be nice to take some of that extra energy for yourself? While we can’t help you there, we can lend a hand in wearing your child out through fun physical activities. It’s important in a child’s development to include physical activity as it promotes a healthy lifestyle later in life. While expending their energy in our karate programs, children also learn strength, flexibility, balance, and hand-eye coordination. Karate is a positive way for a child to release all that pent up energy, so they can come home to be quiet and concentrate on doing their school work!

Learn To Be a Leader

What is the key to being a great leader? It is knowing how to be one, of course. The DOUVRIS karate program allows older children to join our leadership team so they can receive the experience of being a leader in life. Our young leaders are taught how to manage a class of younger belt students, giving them hands-on experience with knowing how to influence people. Our leadership program also gives them an opportunity to practice public speaking by talking to the class and completing demonstrations.  The leadership skills taught are essential in today’s work place so that they have the confidence to excel as a manager, director, CEO, or any other job that requires leadership.

“I was very frustrated and demotivated with my previous karate club and when I came and spoke with Sensei Dom he made me feel very comfortable and at home. It’s finally nice to be able to be productive in class and actually learn from people who care.”
