Kids Karate Classes: This is a great class to introduce your child Shotokan Karate! In this class we will work on the physical skills of balance, strength building and coordination. The emphasis placed on self-respect, posture and creating stable emotions is of equal importance. This class is specifically designed for ages 6-12 and will alternate in presenting all of the basic kicks, blocks and the first Kata promoting strength, balance and listening skills.
