Children's Martial Arts & Karate

As a parent, you are already aware of the tremendous potential of your child. But you may be worried about whether they would be able to make the most of their natural gifts. Maybe your child’s focus or attention span is limited; maybe he or she is shy or plagued by self-doubt; or maybe the child needs someone’s help to reinforce life-skills. These are situations where Tokon Martial Arts can help your child develop the necessary attributes to lead a happy and healthy life.

We at Tokon are passionate about what we do and the attention to every student sets us apart from any other school in the area. Our Karate program is unique in that we combine both a world class traditional martial arts curriculum and a world class character development curriculum. Our students do not only develop physical skills but develop character, focus, determination and commitment as well.

Tokon Martial Arts has a clear goal for anybody of our students: We train black belts and develop leaders. We are not the right program if you just look for an activity to fill up some free time. We are an educational training facility and not a daycare or casual activity center.  We are not a belt factory and not a candy store either - and though our classes are fun, they are also fast paced, demanding and challenging. That's why we demand commitment from both our students (yes even the young ones) but also you the adult (or the parent).

Martial Arts training provides children many benefits dearly needed in today's modern life:

  • Staying Away from Negative Influences: Just saying ‘no’ to drugs and negative influences isn’t enough; it should be backed up with deeds if needed.
  • Structure and Discipline: Classes are structured with a certain demand for physical and mental discipline. This will help children to learn about acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
  • Respect for Others: Everyone deserves respect and no-one should be mistreated. This key lesson is drilled into our students from the early stages since Karate begins and ends with respect. Our programs demand basic etiquettes like bowing and cordially training with others.
  • Self-Control: Karate teaches students to have control over their emotions and throughts. This will help them to be more successful not only during sports but also for their lifes and careers.
  • Leadership Skills: Our student ego from being followers to leaders. Things like conducting the warm up exercises, or assisting the instructors, help students aquire leadership qualities that will benefit them for life.
  • Goal Setting & Achievement: Karate is based on a rank system. Every student starts with the white belt before achieving the frist goal - yellow belt. Each belt will get the student closer to the first black belt. But, even after reaching this goal, there are further black belt ranks to aim for. Throug this path students learn to set goals, achieve them and accept working towards a long term goal.
  • Self-Confidence: Lack of self-confidence can hamper the mental growth of a child. We at Tokon Martial Arts aid in develooping self-confidecne and self-esteem in children and adult alike.
  • Reliefe from ADD & ADHD: Complex physical movements and activities in martial arts strengthen the neural networks of the body and brain. This helps people with conditions like Attention Deficit Discorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder boost self-control, focus and attention capabilities through the medium of Karate.
  • Team Spirit and Team Building: Team Bulding and team spirit are vital parts of martial arts taining but society as a whole. These skills will help children in their professional lilfe as well. (Read more here).
  • Fostering Extroversion: Karate classes for a couple of months can assist in transforming shy and introverted children to bold adn outgoing kids.
