Children and pre-teens can also use martial arts to their advantage in building healthier, stronger bodies and realising a positive self-image. Karate helps younger kids learn limits and structure, develop listening skills, hone their focus, and enhance self-confidence. Karate can be a true positive influence in a child’s life, helping him, or her, to learn about conflict resolution and proper socialising.

Goal setting

Karate has a belt system. As you achieve a skill level your Sensei will send you to ‘grade’ for your next belt. After passing you’ll move on to the next color. The higher you go the more disciplined you’ll need to be. ‘Striving to achieve’ flows on into daily life.

There’s so much to learn in martial arts. If you’re thinking when you get to black belt ‘that’s it, there’s no more to learn’, then think again, because black belt is just the beginning. Karate encourages you to keep learning.

I’m truly amazed when I come away from training with my Sensei ‘I think whoo! I’ve just learned another bunch of stuff I didn’t know before’. So what I’m saying is, it keeps you grounded we all learn from each other, and I’ve seen that time and time again.

karate for learning problems in brisbane

My son was having problems at school and getting easily distracted in class. I didn’t know what to do to get him back on track.Going to karate classes has given him confidence and his behaviour in class has improved. His teacher even commented in our last parent/teacher interview that she’d seen a positive change. I’m pleased we gave this a try.

I wanted to find an activity that my kids could do together and get them away from the computer. They weren’t doing enough physical exercise and my little one doesn’t have good co-ordination. Starting martial arts classes was good for us. It was something they could learn at the pace that suited each of them. It’s been 2 years now and I’m pleased we started.

Karen, The Gap

We started our daughter going to karate classes thinking it would give her confidence. She was very quiet and I was worried about her standing up for herself. She’s surprised me and is really doing well. I’ve now joined too. I badly needed to get exercise so it suited me to stay and join in with the class.There’s all ages. It’s great, love it. It works well for us.

Pete and Sue, Ferny Grove

My son didn’t fit into the traditional sports mould of football and cricket. We decided to let him try karate because it didn’t necessarily have to be competitive. He’s still building muscle strength and co-ordination which makes him feel like his achieving something. Although he doesn’t have to compete in tournaments,one day he might want to and the option is there for him.
