Teach respect, character and self-confidence through the art of discipline
Our children’s martial arts program builds confidence, discipline and focus in a fun, safe and friendly environment. Classes are taught by instructors with over 30 years teaching experience.
The programs are designed to promote physical fitness, self-defence and build character in young people, ultimately introducing students to a new way of life through skill development and progression.
Both the karate and taekwondo programs offer beginner and intermediate classes to children between the ages of 5 and 16 years. Classes are held on a weekly, year round basis (not on school terms) to allow for continuous progression, which also allows you to join at any time.
Taekwondo and karate
Classes are structured to develop skills incorporating games, drills and passive demonstrations. As children build confidence and advance to new level belts, they will develop respect both for the teacher and fellow students by showing control, compassion and compliance. It's these attributes that can make martial arts students into role models and leaders in other aspects of their lives, including school and the community.
Family karate class
Our family class is designed to be fun with game-oriented exercises combined with formal martial arts training. It encourages parents, grandparents, friends or guardians over the age of 16 to enjoy the chance to work together with their children to develop transferable physical skills such as coordination, flexibility, strength and endurance.
