Kids Programming

Our kids programs run 6 days a week with scheduling based on belt level. Your child will also be introduced to Japanese history and culture. We teach the traditional Goju-Ryu karate system which was founded by Chojun Miyagi in Okinawa, Japan. This includes kata, kumite, self-defence and safety training. We now offer virtual training for all students. Train from the comfort and safety of your own home.

The goal of our karate classes for children is to teach a traditional martial art using modern concepts in a practical manner so that it can be applied to the reality children face on a daily basis.

Karate improves physical strength, stamina and co-ordination, enhances self-esteem, teaches your child how to listen and follow directions, and teaches self-control, self-awareness and respect for others.

Trial classes are available for kids 4 and over. Please contact Sensei James Fries to book a class.

Additional Programs and Opportunities include:
  • Special Events
  • Annual open House
  • Seminars
  • Teensafe®
  • Tournament Competitions
  • Elite Team
  • Weapons Classes

Each student is encouraged to train twice per week. Class times are determined by age and belt level. Please refer to training schedule for specific class times.

Parents are welcome to watch their child during their classes and assess the benefits of the program.
