Karate is an introspective art form of Martial Arts that predominantly involves punching, kicking, and striking. Many adults and parents choose to sign their children up for Karate because it teaches confidence, perseverance, and self-defense skills.
Build your child’s confidence and self-awareness with our Lion Cub program. Classes for this age group (three-and-a-half to six years old) focus on improving large motor skills, self awareness, personal space, making eye contact, “no touching,” and “first time listening” both inside and outside of the school.
The children’s program is the beginning of true martial arts self defense training at Lion’s Den. Additionally, students will work to improve their social skills particularly in the areas of conflict resolution, peer relations, and bully avoidance. The focus is physical and emotional wellness and increased confidence through goal setting and learning to protect oneself.
Students in the adult class will learn self defense skills from an adult point of view. The scenarios are geared to be more practical than in the children’s class. The focus remains on improving physical and emotional wellness.
MAAP is our Martial Arts Apprenticeship Program. In the old days, martial arts was a highly regarded part of the education of individuals for self growth and improvement. Through MAAP we provide this old school mentality. While we are not a private school, we pick up children directly after school and bring them to the karate studio.
This class is available for any woman who would like to take charge, feel empowered and confident. Targeted for women 18 and older, children 16 and 17 years of age with parent. Please contact us for private or business training.
