KIDS AT THIS AGE ARE INTELLECTUALLY CURIOUS & BEGINNING TO MATURE EMOTIONALLY

HOWEVER …

They tattle on others without accepting responsibility for their own actions.

They have a hard time coping with losses and setbacks and may not demonstrate good sportsmanship.

They don’t remember what you or their teachers tell them and struggle with paying attention.

INTRODUCING OUR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
& DYNAMIC MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM FOR AGES 10 TO 14

JUNIOR KARATE SKILLZ

By understanding the stages of development in kids ages 10 to 14, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up our Jr Karate SKILLZ Program:

1. DEXTERITY
2. REACTION
3. VERSATILITY
4. MOMENTUM
5. PRECISION
6. INSTINCT
7. STRENGTH
8. VISION

We’re taking Martial Arts training to a whole new level!

We use basic elements of our traditional Okinawan Karate curriculum to build skills that are appropriate for 10 to 14-year old’s. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging.

The best part is that our Jr Karate SKILLZ Program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life for years to come!

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

The solution we found is to provide tweens and teens with their own program that targets their unique needs and abilities based on their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success.

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Kids between 10 and 14 typically have great technique and agility, but they can be lazy which leads to sloppiness.

We expect them to initially be sloppy on things that are easy physically.

The goal of our program is to get them to understand their potential if they pay attention the intricate details. We normally bypass the basics elements of physical development and jump right into the complicated details.

INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT

Tweens and teens are extremely smart. Their critical thinking skills are top-notch, but their decision-making skills are typically the exact opposite, and that is why most adults treat them as a child.

We expect them to initially make choices that are easy as compared to applying thought and effort.

The goal of our program is to get them to see the bigger picture and apply their intellect.

EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Thanks to science, kids at this stage of development are typically all over the emotional spectrum. This is more prominent in boys than girls.

We expect their efforts to be based on what they think is cool.

The goal of our program is to help them apply intrinsic motivation and realize their true potential. Our goal is to also help them improve their decision-making skills with drills that challenge their reaction time.

SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT

These kids care about what their peers think. If something is cool, then they will put more effort into it.

We expect them to initially hold back if they are uncomfortable as a defense mechanism.

The goal of our program is to help them excel at everything they do, especially in front of a crowd.
