Karate – Beginner Level

Our BEGINNER LEVEL classes are for students aged 7 years old and up and ranked White Belt to Blue Belt. These students  discover karate by learning  basis techniques (KIHON) and practicing sequences of simple techniques (KATA). They also experience fighting (KUMITE) with drills executed two by two and by participating in light sparring under supervision. From the start, our students are exposed to the various aspects of karate, in accordance with Japanese tradition.
