Mini Warriors : (3-5 years old – duration 20 minutes)
The goal is to get the student to listen to basic commands and develop their hand/eye coordination skills. When our students eventually transition to the Little Warrior class, they won’t feel intimidated by the other children or have trouble adapting to the class length.
Little Warriors : (5-10 years old – duration 45 minutes)
Our Little Warrior classes are in a caring environment, using positive reinforcement and behaviour modification techniques. We have a reward programme in place which encourages students to achieve “Stars” for their good effort during class. This programme will develop a new sense of self-esteem and pride with a feeling of accomplishment within their own small world.

Dragons : (10-13 years old – duration 45 minutes)
The Dragon programme will enhance your teen in strength, memory and fitness agility whilst giving them the goals to meet inside and outside of the Dojo. Our teens are encouraged to work toward their next rank with support and excellent instruction. Often this spills out into other parts of their lives, resulting in better grades, social skills and a much higher sense of self. Every aspect of karate training is designed to help your teen deal better with stress, and supports you in building the foundation for a successful life for your child moving forward to the next level.
