Our karate programs can be started any time of the year. Because of the unique way we structure and organize our classes and curriculum you can begin right away in a beginner class and not feel like you are “behind” the other students. It also means that you do not have to wait for a group of students or a certain time to advance to the next level.
We evaluate all of our students on an individual basis so that when a students has demonstrated the required skills of their current level they can immediately move on to the next set of requirements. This means more personal attention and more enjoyment.
If you’ve already looked at Taekwondo/ karate schools, you may have seen some that weren’t really set up for teaching kids. Your concern is valid – children studying martial arts have different needs than adults, yet some schools simply modify their adult courses and call them ‘children’s karate.’
At our martial arts institution, we have developed specialized programs for taekwondo/karate instruction in different age groups to ensure that the learning exercises are fun and safe and educative. We have the Taekwondo Kinder Karate Program for children ages 4-5 years and the Junior Achievers Program for children ages 6-8 years, special winning attitude team program for ages 9-12, as well as specific programs for Teens & Adults.
At our martial arts institution your child learns and practices in a physical and philosophical environment that also emphasizes their safety. It begins with strict discipline within the dojo/dojang, or training gym, where our instructors discourage showmanship and egotism, promoting camaraderie and mutual respect. It’s completed with a K2000 Safety Floor and other padded equipment that reduce accident risk during training.
As every child is unique, there is no one correct answer. That’s why we designed the programs to meet the needs of all our students at each stage of their physical and emotional development .
Our pre-school program is unique and does a great job of making our youngest students feel safe and comfortable learning with other children. The school-age classes offer a great introduction to Taekwondo/karate for the inquisitive young person in your home. Designed to be both stimulating and challenging, these classes are not only divided by age but also by skill level, which means that as your child advances they will always be learning with other children with similar abilities.
Our instructors can help you determine if your child may be ready to try one of our programs. Feel free to call or come in to talk to us about your specific needs. We are here to help.
Today’s parents are learning a new vocabulary. Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders are being diagnosed in children under 13 years old by many paediatricians and psychologists. Parents are looking for alternatives to drugs, such as Rydalin, to help their children focus and concentrate in school. And many parents are finding that their children are learning to control their emotional reactions and concentrate longer in school due to participating in karate classes. This increased performance has been linked to the combined mind and body training that is integral to Taekwondo/karate.
In his book Shadow Syndrome, Dr. John J. Rately says “… karate … involve(s) both strenuous exercise and focused awareness. It is this dual focus that gives the martial arts a unique power to improve a variety of brain functions.” Dr. Rately goes on to say, “Unlike most Western sports, the martial arts specifically train the mind as well as the body: novices are taught to pay attention – conscious focused attention – to their balance, timing, endurance, ability to act sequentially, the speed and strength of each muscle and the way they move through space.”
Helping children diagnosed with ADD, Autism and other learning disorders involves getting a team together, including doctors and educators, to guide parents towards finding solutions that work for their child’s unique situation. Our institution is proud to be included on many such “teams”. Please feel free to contact us or go to our website to discuss/inquire about any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child’s unique challenges.
Most teachers will agree that a high level of confidence and self-discipline are essential to achieving good grades in school. At Halton Martial Arts we are experts at raising the confidence and self-discipline of children, using a structured system of instruction and encouragement.
The first step to success is developing the ability to focus on a given task. Part of the curriculum includes “The 3 Rules of Concentration” which our instructors regularly review, including examples of how to follow these rule both in the karate class and in the students’ other activities. Knowing that all stripe and belts are only awarded through consistent effort and improvement, students develop discipline by setting and achieving short- and long-term goals. You may have heard the saying “Nothing succeeds like success.” We bring all our students and their families together every month to celebrate the successful graduation of our students from belt to belt. When our students perform their latest skills for a supportive audience confidence soon follows.
Add in our “I CAN DO IT MYSELF” Home Report system which is the citizenship award program (job list) (which allows the staff and instructors to monitor your child’s progress with home responsibilities and school work).
The best way to determine if your child is ready to begin a martial arts program is to have them actually try a class and see how they respond. At our institution we use our 3 quick start Beginner Introductory Program to help you discover when is the right time to get involved with karate.
Our instructors will assess your child during their trial classes and will let you know if and when they can be accepted into the program. Don’t worry, if there are not ready, we will tell you and also recommended then we think you should bring them back to try again. We want you to feel comfortable in your decision to join our academy, whenever that time may be.
There are many types and styles of martial arts offered at various clubs throughout the city. While the names vary – karate, tae kwon do, ju jitsu, judo – the type of techniques taught can range from striking (punching and/or kicking), throwing and takedowns, grappling and submission moves.
At our institution we feel that the best martial art combines the elements of effective self-defence within an environment that helps develop strong character – Confidence, Respect and Discipline. That is why our curriculum is comprised of elements from both traditional karate and Taekwondo. Equally as important is how the techniques are taught. Our certified Black Belt instructors know how to keep kids focused and having fun while ensuring they progress at a pace that encourages further effort. Combine that with our wide selection of training equipment for every person in class and you get a program that will keep your child having fun for years to come!
