Children’s Karate Werrington

Fun and effective Karate for Kids in Werrington, Peterborough

Children’s Karate in Werrington

We run 2 children’s Karate classes per week in Werrington, Peterborough. The lessons are designed to be fun and engaging while slowly improving the skill and character of the children over time.

Karate is great at improving the self-discipline, fitness, and confidence of children. Our classes begin traditionally. We bow and take a traditional seated position, called Seiza. Then we have a quiet few moments of mindful breathing, called Mokuso. This helps the students to get into the right mindset for training.

Activities in our children’s Karate class

We learn Shukokai Karate. This includes learning the 3 “K”s of Karate.

We start with a warm up. This is a fun and engaging way to improve the fitness of our students. It is also important to help stop injuries during training.

We then work on our basic techniques, such as punching and kicking, called Kihon. Every week is different, and has different activities. We usually incorporate Kata and then Kumite training.

Finally, we make sure every lesson ends on a high, with races or other high-energy activities, before ending the class in a similar way to how it started.

What the children learn

The list of benefits for children training in Martial Arts is huge, from improving their fitness and activity levels, to improving their confidence and self-esteem, learning a new skill.

We find our students (as reported by their adults) learn to resolve conflict in healthier ways, they learn self-discipline and a solid work ethic. That’s before we add in all their newfound techniques – which they’ll be dying to show you!
