WHY TRAIN KARATE WITH ARASHI-DO:
At Arashi-Do we offer traditional Shotokan Karate classes for kids starting at age 4 and up; we have been teaching kids karate for over 30 years. We believe that kids learn best through age appropriate skills and drills so we group the kids into classes by age and belt level. Although we are serious about our martial arts training we make our classes lots of fun!
Our 4 to 7 year old karate program is called Little Dragons. We use a simplified version of our kids curriculum to help 4 to 7 year olds learn real Shotokan karate while they learn how to move their bodies, to follow directions and to interact successfully with others.
Our Youth karate program is for ages 8 to 15. Youth classes are longer and more challenging and the material is more technical. Kids love the structure of karate and we design our classes around skill building drills and fun.

Karate is great for kids - it is fun, it is good exercise and it makes them stronger both physically and mentally. We teach values such as good sportsmanship, courtesy, respect, self control and self-discipline. And we work on bully-proofing and self defense, teaching kids how to stand up for themselves and others in school yard situations in a safe way that doesn’t get them in trouble.
For those kids who want to compete, we run several club tournaments a year and we go to open tournaments. They can even take on the challenge of training for the Olympics.
Karate is a great place to make friends. We work hard to make sure everyone feels welcome and connects with the other students. You will see a boost in their self confidence and their ability to interact with others.
