If you're looking for a safe and welcoming environment for your child to learn Karate, Jujitsu, and Self Defense you've come to the right place. When your child takes a junior karate class, they will develop not only martial arts skills but life skills as well. For Worcester, MA, and the surrounding areas, we offer beginner, advanced and black belt programs designed to teach karate, Jujitsu and self-defense to all ages. Children’s karate classes are broken down by age and skill level. Our students learn the proper techniques for blocking, punching and kicking while having fun. Your child will develop improved balance, flexibility, strength and coordination in a fun and welcoming environment. Students will gain nonphysical skill of self-confidence, respect, and self-control. Our character development program helps children avoid peer pressure and gain confidence. In this way they learn how to handle bullies and life's challenges. We teach the student that nonviolence and safety are always number one. This gives us an opportunity to talk and reinforce stranger danger and other safety issues.
In our junior karate classes, students will meet new friends in the martial arts while learning and growing in so many ways. We do not give social promotions but help the student to achieve their own success. Belt testing is a formal presentation. Students are reviewed and pre tested in class before being put on the test list. We are sure they know the material before the formal test. In this way we help the student build the pride and confidence that only come from knowing they did it themselves. Our children’s karate class structure is called an open clinic format. This style of teaching allows us to give individual attention when we see a child is have a little problem with a technique. The beginner classes and junior classes are more traditional group settings. We also offer private instructions and personal train sessions if your child needs them.
