The children’s Karate classes focus on improving the child’s basic motor and listening skills. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook.
They will become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious towards the future. Our classes will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way.
In the children’s Karate classes your child will be exposed to positive social interaction. They will learn how to work with others and follow directions from their instructors - all whilst learning, exercising, and developing their new skills in a fun and positive environment provided by NGB and PVG registered instructors.
Book today and give your child the gift of martial arts.
Playing sports as a child gives you some of the fondest memories growing up. The thrill of competition, the camaraderie among teammates, and reward of self-improvement are more often found in sports than not.
JKS Scotland Karate actively encourage our members into competition if they choose to go along this route. However, the training and personal development of the individual is of most importance.
Sport Karate consists of two disciplines and training and guidance is provided for both. Kata - the solo forms, and Kumite - the point sparring event. Competitors can choose in which discipline they would like to compete, or the competitor may choose to compete in both.
The choice is yours...
