Kids Karate Classes
About Our Kids Karate Classes
At Nixon’s Martial Arts our Kids Karate Classes are designed for children 6 to 13 years of age. At the core of our program we address and strengthen the qualities that children require in today’s fast paced society. Qualities such as self-confidence and self-esteem have become fundamental to the healthy emotional and mental development of today’s children. Our program helps to instil a strong sense of self-worth which becomes the child’s foundation for dealing with unhealthy peer pressure. In addition, our program emphasizes other important life skills such as self-discipline, respect for others, strong listening skills and an increasingly important understanding of physical fitness.
Karate & Academics
Did you know that Martial Arts instruction has a unique ability to create grade “A” students? It’s no coincidence that a lot of our students bring home top marks on their report cards. Our kids karate classes focus on a student’s development by improving their attention span, their concentration and helping them set personal goals.
a different kind of education
At Nixon’s Martial Arts our goal is consistent and professional instruction in every class. With our small student to instructor ratio each student gets time with the instructor and NO ONE is ever “left behind”. Our instructors are there to re-enforce our 7 Principles in every class and to make classes both educational and fun.
Great physical Exercise
Does your child seem to have a lot of excess energy? Wouldn’t it be nice to take some of that extra zeal for yourself? While we can’t help you there, we can lend a hand in wearing your child out through fun physical activities. It’s important in a child’s development to include physical activity as it promotes a healthy lifestyle later in life. While expending their energy in our kids karate program, children also build strength, flexibility, balance, and hand-eye coordination. At Nixon’s Martial Arts the Kids Karate Classes are a positive and fun way for a child to achieve their fitness goals.
Our Leadership Development Program is designed for members who meet the required qualities and display the initiative of a future instructor. As a Leadership Team Member you will have an important role to play in every class you participate in. In essence, your role is as an instructor-in-training. Often the more critical but less measurable role is as a mentor for the lower belt students. Team members will be trained in the art of communication. Much more than the technical skill involved in throwing a side kick, your skill as a successful communicator and motivator will determine your success as a teacher.
