Karate Class Descriptions
Our Little Dragons Karate Program has been specifically developed for 4 and 5 year olds to allow each student to reach his or her greatest potential. It emphasizes skills such as focus, attention, self-discipline, manners, respect, courtesy, and personal development. Instilling these values truly begins at an early age and will allow your child to have the necessary tools for school and life!
Each student will learn the positive benefits of self-defense; develop coordination and increase strength and flexibility. Because a structure of respect is built into Martial Arts, children develop the ability to listen, learn, focus, and achieve within a highly regulated environment. Instilling these values will allow your child to have the necessary tools for school and life!
Our Teen/Adult Karate Program is a high energy, explosive, exciting, and motivating class that will get you into shape fast! Throughout your training, you will be introduced to the many facets of Karate. As in all activities which develop strength, coordination, and precision, your rate of progress depends a great deal on your willingness to practice constantly and diligently. With this commitment from you, we can assist you in attaining the degree of proficiency you desire. Whether your interest is in self-defense, physical fitness, or mental conditioning, you will find that Action Karate’s Martial Arts program will provide the opportunity for unlimited personal growth and achievement.
Action Karate has a demo team that performs at fundraisers and special events. Students may try out for demo team on a determined tryout day set by Sensei Anderson. Students must be a minimum of 8 years old and yellow belt level to tryout.
Weapons are taught starting at purple belt level with permission by Sensei Anderson. Weapons that are taught include sticks, bo staff, nun-chucks, and sword. (All students are responsible for buying their own weapons to participate in class)
Sparring allows students to come as close to real fight as possible without causing injury. It develops skills that no other form of training covers. Through sparring, students develop timing, control, gauging of distance and reflexes. The purpose of sparring is to develop your fighting skills. It is not a win/lose situation. It is about gaining experience and skills!
