KARATE WITH MY KID
WEBB, KEVIN
Have fun, learn something and grow together from the experience.  That is what family karate at the Martial Arts Institute is all about.  In fact, every child we teach trains with a parent in the SAME class. Families will learn traditional Goju Ryu karate in an environment that allows parents and kids to connect on a different level.  Together families will be introduced to the physical skills of karate kihon (basics) and kumite (partner training). Families will be exposed to different aspects of character and emotional development, as well as how to translate these concepts into practical child-rearing techniques. This program is a means to articulate how martial arts training and traditional Okinawan philosophies can enhance and improve not only the life of the martial arts student, but that of their family as well.
