Karate Classes for Beginners and Kids Karate Classes in Davie, FL.
BEGINNERS KARATE CLASSES AND KIDS KARATE CLASSES: The Beginner’s Classes are designed to introduce and nurture the “new” student in the fundamentals of Martial Arts in general and American Kenpo Karate in specific. The focus is on building solid basic skills. The classes are designed to develop the various kinds of kicks, punches, and stances as well as the basics to movement and introduce the student to the principles that American Kenpo Karate is known for throughout the world. In kicking, we learn front kicks, side kicks, back kicks, roundhouse kicks. In punches, we learn front hand, rear hand, straight punches, cross over punches, ridge hands and more. We also learn the elementary forms and technics of American Kenpo Karate. The first three belt groups (White, Yellow, and Orange belts) are considered the beginner’s ranks. During the beginner’s phase of their training students can participate in the beginner’ sparring classes which are made up of two parts. The first stage is what we call “sparring drills” where the student learns basic sparring skills in preparation for the second level of sparring. The second stage is actual sparring where the student can safely experience a “sparring match” with other students of equal skill and experience.
Typically new students are beginners for about nine months. We also begin the process of developing the life skills that are so important in character development in children and Teens. We incorporate the process of developing self-confidence, respect for self and others, the importance of integrity in all we do, why its important to be modest, the importance of courtesy, how self-control helps us become our best as well as many other life skills. Beginners typically begin by coming in and trying an introductory lesson which helps us evaluate which class is best suited for the student’s developmental stage. Age has a lot to do with developmental skill development of fine and gross motor skills, attention span, left/right brain transition and other skill levels. We offer four curriculum tracts to best suit each student’s individual needs. Little Eagles, Youth, Teen and Adult curriculum paths help students get the most from their training. After in introductory class for those who are NOT sure about making a commitment we offer our Introductory Program which is a one week (typically two to three classes) program. For those who know our center is a good choice for them we ask they enroll in our beginner’s program which is a six-month program of two to three classes per week. We do give a 30 right to cancellation clause.
