KARATE FOR CHILDREN
Firstly we would say that Karate is not just another after school activity for children. Whilst we feel that activities such as football, ballet and horse riding for example are all great fun for children to be involved with and certainly should be tried and tested, Karate is all about a child's personal development through the physical discipline of Karate.
Our exciting, yet structured and disciplined classes, teach children how to focus their attention which improves their ability to learn. We have found that learning builds a real sense of accomplishment in children and with each new accomplishment a child's self-confidence will grow.
Our children's karate programme is designed for all children from five years plus and the curriculum has been built around good, strong foundations in technique along with positive life skills development.
The programme works hand in hand with a child's schoolwork, improving self-discipline, focus, mental alertness, self-confidence and learning to set and achieve attainable goals.
Our aim is to progress children through our belt grading system and every student’s goal is to achieve Black Belt and beyond. Black belt is a symbol of excellence in karate and an important tool for instructors and parents to use for developing desire, determination and for teaching the importance of follow-through in any activity.
Our students are taught never to give up at any given task and that they can do anything as long as they just put their mind to it.
Our classes are loved by the students, parents and their teachers because we make them fun and encourage the children to grow into young responsible adults in a natural way.
Our instructors at Seiken Karate all hold a DBS, First Aid & Safe Guarding Qualifications and are fully insured and recognised by the National Governing Body for karate. The chief instructor of Seiken Karate is Sensei Dean Roberts who is is a former English & British Champion, International Medalist. Sensei Dean has been training for 30 years holds a 3rd Dan Black Belt and has been teaching for the last 17 years.
