Karate at Hillhurst - Class Descriptions

  • Little Dragons Karate (Ages 5-7) - CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION

    Description:
    Research has shown that young children learn well through motion and the use of games. By being actively engaged they'll remember the concepts and lessons of Karate. Even at an early age, Karate trains the body, mind, and spirit. The physical training involves good conditioning; keeping kids active and off the couch. The mental training involves discipline, confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills. And certainly, feeling good about yourself and finding a place in the world helps engage the spirit. Building a strong body, mind, and spirit at an early age helps all students prepare for life's challenges.
