Karate Kids Canada is a committed team of Martial Arts and Fitness Instructors devoted to bringing the benefits of Martial Arts, fitness and character development to children in elementary schools across Canada.
We believe in providing a cost-effective, superior program that is accessible to all students. Through our unique combination of Martial Arts, physical fitness and character-education lessons it is the goal of Karate Kids to make a significant and lasting impact on the lives of our students.
Karate Kids Canada’s Top Priorities Are:
To build strong moral character
Karate Kids classes are designed to bring awareness and practice to the concepts of mindfulness, integrity, self-discipline, courtesy and compassion. Character talks and reward-based assignments integrate these concepts into students’ daily activities.
To introduce children to basic martial arts
Traditional Martial Arts helps students develop focus, discipline, and concentration through a controlled class environment, repetitive practice of essential Martial Arts movements and an emphasis on the development of each student’s character, as opposed to tradition sports that focus on winning or losing a game. Karate Kids’ ratio of at least 1 instructor to 20 students ensures that the learning atmosphere is well supervised and controlled.
To make students feel important and acknowledged
We at Karate Kids Canada feel that the development of each child's self-confidence is an essential part of our program. Therefore, we have incorporated several forms of acknowledgment into our program, and we strive to recognize and engage with every child during each class. Our program features leadership team participation, earned character-education badges, and monthly progress checks designed to give participants regular, positive feedback.
To increase levels of physical fitness and focus
Karate Kids ensures that participants enjoy at least 20 minutes of fun vigorous physical activity in each class, in a non-contact, non-competitive atmosphere. Our exclusive games teach and develop fine motor-skills and increase students' strength and endurance. Repetitive practice of traditional Martial Arts movements increases the ability of the student to have self-control and focus.
