National Karate for Youth (Ages 7-12)
About the program
The boys and girls in the NK Youth Program learn to be accomplished martial artists; strong, confident and skilled. As they earn higher belt ranks, the NK curriculum will challenge them physically and help develop their powers of concentration, but most importantly, it will develop their leadership skills. Martial arts training is a safe and effective way for youth to stay strong, flexible and fit. Youth who have earned higher levels of NK martial arts skills do not have problems with bullies and do not become bullies.
NK training emphasizes positive behavior, respect for others and personal responsibility. Children can become highly skilled martial artists and many earn the black belt rank and higher. Belt rank must be earned…it is not handed out. True self esteem comes from real accomplishment. NK training develops self-confidence, improves physical fitness and helps youth have more success in school. NK children are leaders. Students learn perseverance. NK students do not give up easily.
