The children’s classes have four to six black belt instructors on the floor in each and every class. So with nearly a 100 years experience between the instructors on the floor, Newcastle Karate offers “real student outcomes” and ensures that each student can receive the attention and the guidance they need to reach their potential.
Newcastle Karate is not a babysitting service. Our instructors break the class off into smaller groups delivering a private session with a smaller group of kids for a large portion of the class. Our programs speak for themselves and the parents speak for us!
Is your focus for your child confidence, self-discpline, exercise, self control or anti bullying skills, we take the time to understand what you as a parent would like your child to achieve from martial arts.
We have three classes for consideration:
Tiny Tigers Class ages of 5 to 7.
Little Dragons Class ages 7 to 9.
Juniors Class ages 9 to 12.
Improved learning outcomes – Learning karate contributes to an improvement in learning outcomes across all key learning areas (KLA’s) as students are required to demonstrate self discipline, focus and the ability to follow explicit instructions. The holistic nature of this program assists in achieving clarity of the mind, hence the link between practicing karate and improving learning outcomes.
Improved self control – The Newcastle Karate program focuses on teaching students the importance of self discipline and skills in order to control their actions at all times. They learn to control their body, as well as their words and tone.
Improved confidence – For some children, self confidence does not come easily. The Newcastle Karate program aims to improve students self confidence via encouragement, positive reinforcement and individual recognition when they achieve each grading goal. Newcastle Karate teaches students how to avoid conflict however, students gain confidence knowing they have the ability to defend themselves if under attack, only as a last resort.
