It is important for kids to start to develop their physical, mental and social skills as early as possible. During Karate and Self-Defence classes they can do that better than in any other sport.

While training in Martial Arts kids develop their focus, discipline and selfconfidence. Karate for kids also teaches them important values such as respect, responsibility, and teamwork. Students will learn to move their bodies with precision and control, while also developing coordination, confidence and self-esteem.

Sensei Gabi often incorporates games and activities to keep students engaged and motivated, and may also include sparring and other interactive drills to help kids practice their skills.

All students are sure to have a blast while learning valuable Karate and Self-Defence skills!

Help to Improve


Students are taught to respect their Sensei, classmates, and the traditions and techniques of Karate. This respect is demonstrated through proper behaviour and manners, as well as showing deference and regard for others during training.


Students are expected to follow the instructions of their Sensei and the traditions of Karate. This includes maintaining proper posture, showing respect to others, and practising self-control. Through disciplined practice, students can improve their physical and mental abilities, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the principles of Karate.


Teamwork is an essential component of kids Karate classes, as it helps students support and encourage each other as they progress in their training. Through regular training sessions and group activities, students learn how to work together, share techniques, and develop a sense of camaraderie. This team dynamic helps to create a positive and inclusive environment, where students can push each other to achieve their goals and improve their skills.


Focusing is an essential aspect of Karate classes as it allows students to concentrate on their movements and techniques. This mental discipline helps students to develop their physical abilities and improve their overall performance. Focus also helps students to stay present and avoid distractions, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in their training and achieve their goals.
