Gilbert & Chandler Family Karate Classes
Little Dragons (ages 3-5) This class will impress you. Our Little Dragons learn to be better listeners. They also learn how to be respectful and how to focus. They are beginning to learn martial arts movements appropriate for their age group. As students grow they are also working to become physically stronger and more coordinated, so they gradually learn more challenging movements. Most importantly, they have FUN!
Children’s Beginners (ages 6-11) They learn how to set goals and have the ability to achieve them. They develop higher levels of attention and improve their overall coordination. They further develop respect, focus, and learn self-defense. We work with them on improving self-esteem, and encourage our students to do well academically.
Teens/Adults (ages 12 and up) Karate classes are a great way to keep teenage children out of trouble! We provide a positive environment for teenagers to grow both physically and mentally. They also learn how to overcome peer pressure. Everyone in this class has the opportunity to improve flexibility, endurance and energy. Also, our unique method of martial arts helps reduce stress in our students while adding an exciting new dimension to their lives. In addition, learning self-defense is extremely important for both teens and adults.
