Youth Karate and Martial Arts Programs
Martial arts classes are a fantastic activity for children of all ages. Children in our dojo learn focus and discipline in a fun atmosphere while learning self-defense techniques that will serve them for a lifetime.
Children, Lil’ Dragons – Ages 3-7
Our Lil’ Dragons program teaches kids how to respect their bodies, their peers, and their teachers. While learning practical defense, these students learn life skills such as:
- Stranger danger
- Health and nutrition
- Benefits of exercise
- Goal setting
Our Lil’ Dragons get a jump on life by developing life skills that will make them a better, healthier citizen.
Novice Youth Karate Program – Ages 8-12
Today’s kids are growing up with more challenges than any previous generation and they are inundated with negative role models in popular culture. Additionally, social media creates an environment where bullying, intimidation, and poor choices are just a click away.
Bushido Academy recognizes that offering our kids an alternative approach to life is critical in ensuring their safety and success. The discipline learned through our karate training provides a foundation for every child’s continued success in life: in their school career as well as their professional future. The confidence built through positive leadership helps steer our students to make choices that support them becoming the best person they can be.
Youth Karate Leadership Program — Ages 8-12
Once a student has successfully promoted to orange belt, they enter our Leadership Program. Students in these classes learn more advanced self-defense techniques, kata, and bun kai (application of technique).
