JUNIORS

(6-15 years)

Rising Stars

Shotokan Karate is the ideal sport for children for building self-confidence, balance, co-ordination, discipline and courtesy, while learning basic self-defence skills. Children may start training in our junior karate classes from 6 years of age.

ESKA classes provide a warm, friendly and encouraging atmosphere and all instructors are fully qualified and CRB checked. Children may train in regular classes (alongside people of all ages including other family members) or train in special children’s only classes.

Our goal is to help your child grow into a respectable and confident young individual. We encourage all students to behave in a disciplined and respectful manner. Our instructors regularly communicate with parents regarding their child’s progress to ensure each child reaches their full potential. While the predominant focus of karate is to develop character, students also learn basic self-defence skills. ESKA instructors regularly promote that children MUST NOT misuse their karate under any circumstances.

ESKA Karate offers a coloured belt system where all students start at White belt and work up through different colours (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Purple, Brown, and finally Black belt). This serves not only to measure a child’s progress but also provides a journey to embark on. Children are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teach them life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.

When karate was first developed in Okinawa, its purpose was to teach children to become people of high character, with self-defence being a secondary focus. The character these children exhibited was so impressive, in 1902, karate was formally introduced into the Okinawa Primary School system so all Okinawa children would benefit from its teachings.

When karate moved to Japan in the 1920’s, within a few short years the Japanese Government were so impressed with the values it promoted, it too introduced karate into it’s education system. This still exists today where every school in Japan has karate as a subject all students must study.

The Beginning of your Journey

Starting out any hobby can be both exciting and a little daunting. Starting out in karate with ESKA can be more than average of both. Your first karate lessons might be the beginning of a life-long journey to your black belt.

Your first lessons will typically consist of a simple warm up and stretch, basic karate blocks, punched and kicks, simple fitness training, etiquette and safety talk. At ESKA we separate the beginners from more experienced students. You won’t be expected to work on particularly challenging or complicated moves during your beginning lessons. The purpose of this is to give you a taste of karate and to see if you like it.

CONCENTRATION 100%
CO-ORDINATION 100%
CONFIDENCE 100%
SELF-DEFENCE 100%
