Children’s Karate Classes
Children love learning at Azatos Academy of Martial Arts. Our kids’ martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive. Our primary goal at Azatos Academy of Martial Arts is to build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.
Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques. At Azatos, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.
Our emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self- confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.
Traits That Martial Arts Develops in a Child:
- Physical fitness
- Self confidence
- Positive attitude
- Goal setting
- Strong work ethic
Life Lessons Developed Through Training at Azatos
- Avoiding conflicts
- Dealing with bullies
- Mental self defense
- Proper respect for adults
- Stranger awareness
- Respect for self and others
- Saying no to drugs and peer pressure
These valuable life lessons help our students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.
Adults Martial Arts Classes
While our martial arts training is an excellent personal-development activity for children, it’s great for adults also! Our adult students usually find that they cope better with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just feel better overall. They also have a greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.
However, the greatest benefit of martial arts at Azatos for adults is the increased sense of self confidence it builds.
No matter what the style of martial arts — whether it’s karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, tai chi or kendo — the physical and mental benefits are similar.
Physical Benefits of Martial Arts
- Greater flexibility
- Increased energy
- Improved muscle tone
- Increased cardiovascular fitness
Mental Benefits of Martial Arts
- Lower stress levels
- Higher self-esteem
- Better concentration and focus
- Emotional satisfaction — especially if you’re taking martial arts classes alongside your children
All of the classes are individualized. Adults participate at their own fitness level while progressing in skill and technique. When participating as a family, martial arts provide a unique opportunity for sharing in a non-competitive fun activity. Plus, parents have the opportunity to reinforce the life lessons taught in our martial arts classes at home.
Azatos Karate provides an ideal workout for both men and women. Our adult martial arts students range in age from young adult to seniors.
