Children's Wado Ryu Karate Classes

Whatever your age or interest in Karate we very much welcome hearing from you and hopefully seeing you at one of our classes!

The 'Find a Club' page can be accessed from the left hand side menu of the website or by clicking here - Find a Club.

Children’s classes are taken separately because of their special needs and only the appropriate exercises and techniques are taught. The children's classes are specially designed for this age group, and the aim is to help the younger student gain overall fitness, co-ordination, balance, confidence, respect, self control, concentration, self discipline, etiquette, and self defence awareness procedures. Progress for children is measured by merit badges and a colour belt system.

Fitness Exercises
Specially designed games are included in the warm up exercises to keep the students motivated, and at the same time all types of karate movements are learned to help with co-ordination and balance as well as all round fitness.

Confidence
By encouraging the students to practise for their karate award badges and colour belts, the student will gain confidence in their ability inside and outside the class.

Respect
Respect is a very important part of Martial Arts training. In the days of the Samurai he respected himself, and all others, even his enemies. It is very important to have this respect inside and outside the training hall (dojo) as it is the bridge to mutual understanding and ultimately to peaceful co-existence with others.

Self Control
When practising with other students self control of ones' actions is very important as to not hurt each other.

Concentration
The way Karate is taught to Children at the club seems to improve their self discipline, concentration levels, and their focus a great deal.

This is because the student uses the mind and physical action at the same time to a precise set of instructions.

This helps the student at school and later on in their lives. The art of concentration is to learn to ignore distractions and clear the mind of all thoughts, except for the task that is being done at the time.

Self Discipline and Etiquette
At S.E.M.K.A. we like to teach Martial Arts Discipline, but in a relaxed way. Discipline in the Training Hall (Dojo) is very important for safety and an essential part of teaching a Martial Art.

All students have to obey the clubs' rules (Dojo Kun) and obey the Instructor (Sensei). Students are taught that Karate is for self defence only, and the student (Karateka) must never attack first, mentally or physically (Karate Ni Sentenashi). As the student trains good manners and precise etiquette will also develop externally and more importantly, mentally.

Self Defence
Karate is a form of self defence but the real essence of Wado Ryu is to train hard yet search for a mental condition where martial arts need not be used. Within the syllabus children are taught awareness of different situations and personal safety practices.
