Your child will learn discipline, focus and respect while actually having fun! Through training, karate students also learn self-control, mental and physical self-discipline, and the development of highly effective self-defense and fighting techniques.
Students may start at age 5, but we recommend taking pre-school gymnastics before you register for Karate. Register for one class and come up to 4 times a week.
Karate belt represents the young shotokan karate student’s experience therefore it is never washed. After much sweat, blood and dirt the belts color will change representing new levels achieved in this order yellow, orange, red, green, purple, blue, brown and ultimately black. How long does it take to become a black belt in Shotokan Karate? The average student that trains diligently, at least three times a week, can potentially become a black belt in about 3 1/2 to 4 years. This large window of time is based on individual skill and natural ability.
