Classes for Kids

Ashihara Karate presents special classes for children from the age of 5 and upwards. These classes have been designed especially for children by Sensei Mark Cousins, a Black Belt, who has more than 20 years of martial arts experience.

If it seems as if our classes are chaotic - ie. Without a system, then it is because it has been designed so for one purpose only. That is to suit our children. More than anything else, kids need to be kids. Their training is not geared for mortal combat as it is for adults. Instead, the emphasis is on the development of self-discipline, agility, balance, co-ordination, self-confidence, and some basic defence skills. And most importantly, it is Fun! After all, if they don't enjoy it, they won't learn it.

By making sure that your children attend regular classes you will be giving your child a head start in achieving a happy well-organised style of living. Many parents do not realise the depth and scope of a good martial arts training. It offers a lot more than just surface value.

Along with proper guidance from parents, the study of Ashihara Karate is an invaluable aid in creating a well adjusted human being. If any parent would like more information or has any questions, we encourage you to talk to your dojo instructor or write to or telephone our headquarters.
