Is Karate Suitable for Children?

Karate is one of the best recreational pursuits that a child can practice. With the high degree of discipline in the class, the child will learn to accept responsibilities, become more aware and self confident without being big-headed. Add this to the fitness and self defence benefits and you can see why so many parents enrol their children into Karate classes. We usually have special classes for children from 5 years of age. Many parents bring along their children to either build confidence in a quiet or shy child, or to instil discipline in an unruly child. Whatever the reason, the child will quickly settle in and become part of the "Dragons" group!
