Karate in Basingstoke. For Children between 7 and 9 years old, who are much more socially adept than their younger siblings and have much better motor skills and control to use during their Karate training with us in Basingstoke. However most of them are not quite ready to study at the same level as the 10-15 year olds. We will work with them to help them develop physically, emotionally and socially with their peers and friends.
At this age your child will learn how to fine tune the performance of their motor skills whilst gaining an excellent detailed understanding of their Martial Arts movements at a deeper technical level. The refinements to their practise will now focus on teaching and improving their more advanced skills focussing on:- Agility Technique Courage Intensity Flexibility Perseverance Speed Concentration Stamina Self Confidence
Make the right choice for your child. Get them involved in a sport which will keep them active for life.
We have many systems in place within our Basingstoke Martial Arts Academy to recognise effort and achievement within our students including trophies, stickers, badges and special weekly, monthly and annual awards. We recognise all achievements in our students, not only those who are physically talented but also those who, for example, are polite, hard working, thoughtful towards others, show good attendance or who have worked well as part of a team. Students are also able to take regular gradings within the Academy, allowing them to earn their next belt, all the way to Black Belt.
Classes are structured so that we train safely and all classes include a warm up, flexibility and strengthening exercises as well as a cool down at the end. The format for each class changes slightly on a weekly basis as we progress through our curriculum. For example in Week 1, Lesson 1 may cover Dynamic Kicking and Lesson 2 may cover Tai Chi and the following week it changes to the next topic. We also work on a skill, this is partly by discussion in class and also through practical exercises, for example working as part of a team or stranger danger. We finish with a Karate game partly as a reward for good behaviour and effort but also to aid in the development of a particular technical skill, such as co-ordination.
Our classes are structured to encourage a ‘can do’ confident attitude in all the children we teach. It is our job to work with parents to make sure your children are successful, not just in the Academy, but in life in general. We achieve this by showing children that hard work means achievement and achievement means success.
