Kids Karate / Family Karate: (Parents and children 6 – 12 years)
A fun filled program specially designed parents to attend with their children ages 6 to 12. Parents have the option to participate or watch and must initially remain on premise for children who are newcomers to the program. Through games and drills the children learn the basics of karate, stressing the need to respect themselves and others. It develops karate technique and helps to build self confidence, discipline and control. The benefits go beyond the dojo. A positive attitude will help with every aspect of life, home, school, or otherwise.
Youth/Adult Karate: (13+ years)
A dynamic program for teenagers and adults alike intended to teach both the physical and mental sides of karate. Fun, exhilarating, and a great confidence booster. Adults of all ages can benefit from the art and sport of karate. Condition the entire body while relieving stress. Feel your spirit soar as you build self-confidence accomplishing things you never thought possible. Perhaps even achieving the rank of black belt. Learn to defend yourself with dynamic and effective techniques. And best of all, meet and develop new friendships. Whether your goals are to just be active, learn some self defense or to potentially travel the world and compete with our Wado Kai National Karate team, all that is required is to show up and try your best. Everything else will fall into place.
Students are welcome to attend classes at other clubs that are part of the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation at no additional charge. Please be courteous, introduce yourself and your home club to one of the club instructors.
