Introduction to proper stretching, basic blocks, punches, kicks, strikes, and what to do to defend off an attacker. Children’s natural curiosity and playfulness combined with basic karate drill help develop coordination, mental focus and alertness. A great way to learn discipline, respect, self-confidence, help release energy and prepare students for future, more structured classes. Uniform, equipment and testing are additional fees. White belts up to two stripes. Uniform required after first class.

Beginners / Intermediate Ages 8+

Students will learn proper stretching, basic blocks, punches, kicks, self-defense and forms (Kata) while being introduced to the history and terminology of Chang Tai Do Karate.

This is a great opportunity for family and friends to get in shape, reduce stress and spend quality time together. This level is for white and yellow belt students.
