Beginners Karate

Description: In a safe, structured, fun, environment, children and adolescents age 5 and up hone essential life skills, including discipline, focus, strength, coordination, confidence, and respect.
Students learn Shorin-Ryu karate, earning belts at an individualized rate of progress as they develop advanced skills in kata (forms) and Kumite (sparring). Students practice various punches, kicks, blocks, and strikes with instructors, and they may demonstrate their progress at a belt testing ceremony at the end of each session.  Classes are held in person at the Hill Center Thursdays 4-4:45 pm and Saturdays from 9-9:45 am. Children 5 years old and older are welcome.
