Benefits

GOAL SETTING - Our program helps each child to determine what their personal goals are. Once the DOJOKU student sets his/hers goals, our trained instructors will help the student reach for and achieve their goals. COORDINATION - Physical participation in the classes challenges the entire body, developing coordination, balance, agility and poise, often neglected in many team sports available to children in this age group. FUN! - DOJOKU lessons are a dynamic and challenging approach to the martial arts. The classes are designed to meet the level of all children whether they are athletic, energetic, awkward or shy, bold, nice, or maybe even a little wild once in awhile... Chances are that our Instructors have seen it and our classes are probably for a kid just like yours.
Martial Arts training often also provides many benefits to youngsters beyond that offered by other sports like patience, concentration, humility, self- discipline, self-control, self-confidence, self- improvement and a strong healthy body with good coordination as well as a healthy mind set. The introverted youngster often begins to blossom when he or she learns karate. The structured drills that involve punching, kicking, and yelling help the youngster overcome shyness and timidity.
The anxious or worried child becomes more confident and assertive as he learns to move and control his body. He or she learns to work and compete with others in a friendly and safe environment. Self-confidence and self-esteem grow. Many parents report a marked increase in the child’s social interactions. The youngster feels less threatened by other children or new situations. As a result, there is often more of a willingness to become more involved with others.  The extroverted youngster has a safe, healthy outlet in which to compete with himself and others. Youngsters are taught how to avoid trouble and challenges. They learn to have enough self-confidence that they need not respond to teasing or provocation from peers. The aggressive child is taught the self-discipline that aids in keeping anger under control. He or she learns that fighting is merely a way of showing off and that showing off is a sign of low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence.  Martial Arts training is a gross motor activity that helps youngsters develop a sense of integrity about their bodies. Balance, coordination, posture, and general movements improve with karate training. The kids are always active in their sport as they progress, instead of just "warming the bench."  The pre-adolescent, in particular, finds that Martial Arts training helps him or her cope with the clumsiness that often accompanies the spurt of growth at this age. Martial Arts also offers an additional bonus that other sports do not provide. Martial Arts teaches self-defense, in the unsettling times in which we live, a knowledge of how to protect oneself can be crucial. Parents often report feeling more secure knowing their sons or daughters are capable of defending themselves.
