Karate for Kids:
We offer the Best Karate Training for kids of all ages...
A lot of parents struggle with whether or not they should send their kids to a dojo to train. They often conjure scenes of bloody violence and having a future bully at their dinner table. The facts remain the same that students who train in martial arts are safer than the majority of other school sports. They learn discipline; fairness and accountability while in the dojo and try to bring those concepts into their daily lives. Kids benefit from regular exercise, look better and feel more fit and confident. Karate training can give children unique and wonderful health benefits as they grow, forming the basis of a lifetime of enjoyment and healthy habits.
Karate training builds cardiovascular fitness, and strength and flexibility like most sports. But it also particularly builds perfect body awareness and control, precision in movement, and speed and strength. At the same time, it builds inner well being and self-esteem. As a traditional art, the focus is on respect for oneself, one's peers, and one's teachers, discipline, and rigorous self-examination and improvement. More than any other sport for children, karate and its inherent values counteract the "win at all costs" mentality so common in sports today. These values alone with the individual pacing can make karate particularly hopeful for children who struggle with attention and behavior. Doctors have actually prescribed it for children with ADHD.
Multiple Services Are Offered in Karate for Kids Martial Arts are the perfect way to give your child confidence and improve their self-discipline. The students that are training in the martial arts will be developing their bodies into living self defense weapons. Karate meaning empty hand develops those hands into the perfect tool as weapons through the unique conditioning designed to make punching and striking less painful without deforming the hands or creating unsightly blemishes.
Part of learning martial arts starts with teaching the student how to stand (dashi) in given situations that are unique to the martial arts. We at Kenwayoshin Ryu Martial Arts Dojo employ many different dashi / stances that give our students the combative advantage in any given situation.
Additionally, from a self defense perspective our students are taught to defend themselves from attacks from punches, strikes and kicks by employing exceptional means of defending themselves through blocks developed over a thousand years that can be used in a combat situation.
To ensure that our students don’t fall victim to an attack, we teach them how to protect themselves using tactical combative techniques using punches, strikes, kicks, throws, takedowns, joint locks, pressure points manipulations and many more self defense applications.
Our program teaches your child the life skills of self-defense, which can help them, feel more at ease while facing the challenges of growing up. We use a combination of proven techniques and self-defense training while maintaining an emphasis on safety and fun to keep your child feeling challenged but also, calms and secure.
Our Program is designed to not only be a physical workout, but one that will strengthen your child's mind as well. We focus on traits like concentration, self-respect, and respect for others. These traits will develop and strengthen as your child work through our martial arts program. Our Program fosters this growth by working with each child, at their own pace, in a positive and disciplined environment.
Working through our Martial Arts Program you will notice that your child will show improved stress management, be less inclined to suffer ADD symptoms, and show a well-developed sense of respect for themselves and others.

Our Kids Know How to Stop the Bullying
Our curriculum includes training that is age appropriate for children but still provides the self defense skills to emerge successful in any confrontation. This program was created to answer parent's question: "How can I keep my child from being bullied?"
Bullying can have devastating effects on children and even adults. It effects them academically, emotionally, physically (stomach aches, Etc.), and psychologically.
The emotional and psychological effects of being bullied can carry on into adulthood. Bullying is a serious matter and needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, most children do not report being bullied because they are embarrassed, they don't believe anyone can help them and they fear retaliation for reporting the bully; some fear their parent(s) will be ashamed of the them for not standing up for themselves and some because they fear the parent’s involvement will make matters worse.
During the training we will work on understanding what bullying is and how it affects us, we'll learn verbal and non-verbal communication skills and the appropriate time to use them, identify the child's reaction when the "hot buttons" get pushed, and how that reaction benefits the bully. Students will learn new non-violent techniques to use to avoid being bullied.
The second half of the class will focus on self-defense techniques and while I do not promote fighting, there may be a time when you are given no choice. Learning new skills involves commitment and some practice. Your child will learn techniques taught by the Verbal Judo Institute for the past 28 years, and although the training was originally created for law enforcement personnel, the principles are the same for the civilian program. Change and learning something new can be scary and hard, but trying to avoid a bully or bullies all day is even harder and far more stressful.
