Typical Class Breakdown
The Junior Advanced class is reserved for the students who have obtained a purple belt and above. This martial arts and self-defense program is a continuation of the training received in the Juniors (Beginner Level) Program. In this higher level of instruction, martial arts and self-defense fundamentals are reviewed and expanded upon. Our instructors introduce new approaches that combine with your kids’ prior lessons to guide them into the next phase of their karate journey.
Students are encouraged to grow in ways not previously focused on in classes, such as in increasing their speed, power, and fluidity. During this stage of martial arts instruction we take students from structured, more-or-less predictable methods of karate training to a more reactionary, improvisational, freestyle approach that prepares them for a more realistic self-defense situation they might encounter.
