Children's Program, 6-12 Years
The Adult Kenpo Karate program has been modified for children. Children are taught self-defense skills in the form of katas (structured, memorized moves), kicks, punches, yells, and running away.
Emphasis is on situational awareness, utilizing awareness (gut reaction, anxiety, fear), awareness through the senses (identifying strangers, violation of personal boundaries and sounds that may indicate a dangerous situation) and creating an exit strategy.
Rules, rituals, physical exercise, and formal training help children to focus, concentrate and perform better in school. Children become empowered as their confidence builds, and self awareness and physical conditioning increase. They set and achieve goals through learning the life skills of self-discipline, patience and self respect.
All children are modeled the freedom that exists when our energy is focused. Children are separated by age and skill level. They are taught privately, as well as in group classes.
