Children work on learning the basic techniques of the traditional Japanese-style of martial arts, Seido Karate. Each morning the students will start their day with a bit of quiet meditation. Then they will practice blocks, kicks and punches. Next, they will work on practical self-defense and explore the weapons of traditional martial arts.
In the afternoon, we will focus on sports conditioning and endurance training. A portion of the time will be dedicated to drills and games that work to improve motor skills. And of course we’ll spend some time in the outdoor pool.
Finally, classes will include artistic and educational components to make a well-rounded experience for the children.
