Children’s classes: from 4 years old

Martial arts education from age 4

I try a lot of things while I’m playing.

“The slogan of the Children’s Division of Classes for Kids is “Martial Arts Education from the Age of 4” and is aimed at preschoolers and small children.

Through karate practice at Ryushinjuku…

  • Through the joys and setbacks of success, students will appreciate the importance of hard work and the spirit of never giving up.
  • They will grow up to be polite, energetic and cheerful children.
  • Before entering elementary school, students will learn to hear the end of a story and respond to it correctly.
  • Students will learn how to use their bodies and strength through glove drills and sparring matches, and become strong and gentle through learning about pain.
  • You will be able to greet and respond out loud.
  • Being barefoot all year round will improve your health and help strengthen your resistance to colds.

What you can learn through basic instruction and the “heart power” that we strive for at Ryoshinjuku, if learned early, will give you a good foundation for the rest of your life.

Q:What happens when you do karate?

Carefully guided according to your age and level

The first thing we do in the children’s class is to put on our own karate clothes and practice tying our belts.
Next, we practice shouting, lining up, and silence.
As we learn these skills, our ability to do so will gradually increase.
Eventually, you’ll be able to do front rolls! I can do 10 sit-ups! I could do a reverse kick! and the smiles on the children’s faces are filled with joy every day.
We encourage parents to feel the joy of their child’s success with us.

Karate is said to be the best way to learn for beginners!

There are five major advantages to learning to get up early.

  1. Make a habit of greeting and being polite before class
  2. Grow and develop useful skills
  3. Learn the basics from a knowledgeable teacher
  4. What you can do that you can’t do at home
  5. Make friends of all ages
  6. .

There is a limit to the amount of exercise we can do and shout at home.
Sometimes, “Be quiet!” . But at the karate dojo, we welcome pranks.
However, at the karate dojo, we welcome frolicking.
We also teach greetings and proper posture from a young age.

frequently asked questions

I want to take a class for my child (4-5 years old), but I’m worried it will interfere with my older child’s practice.
Don’t worry
If your child is already 4-5 years old, you will find it easier to attend Child/Jaynen Classes A and B; in Class B, the older students, mostly 2nd and 3rd graders, take care of the younger children. Interacting with the little ones helps the older students learn to be more attentive and develop leadership skills. For older children, the little ones are not only a hindrance, but a need.
Younger children imitate their elders, so they will grow up faster if they practice in a group of different ages.
We welcome children who are restless, whiny, or mischievous.
I’d love for my kid to join the club, but he’s too shy to fit in well with the group.
Different children have different personalities and different feelings.
Why don’t parents join in and try physical activity until they get used to it?
Surprisingly, many girls get used to it when their parents are with them.
My kids can raise their hands to their friends. Doesn’t playing karate make you more violent?
Some of the parents who actually attended the school had similar concerns before they entered the school. As a result, they learned about their own strength and pain through sparring matches and set practice with opponents, which led them to believe they were practicing karate and shouldn’t touch it.
It’s hard to say, but karate does help you learn how to use your body and control your strength, and knowing the pain of a fight helps you be nicer to others.
Do I have to accompany you during practice?
In general, students may travel unaccompanied.
If there are specific concerns, we may ask you to accompany your child in consultation with you and your instructor.
There is a viewing area at the back of the dojo where parents are free to observe.
However, guardians are encouraged to observe and encourage the child to try harder.
What other support do you need from your parents besides transportation to and from the dojo?
While the coach will be responsible for practice time (although they may ask you to help with gloves from time to time), parents are asked to support their child at home.
Guardians are people who encourage their children to do their best.
We want karate to be the new way of communication between parents and children.
Are you going to get hurt?
Some people think karate is dangerous, but we wear protective gear to prevent injury.
Beginners will learn the basics first, and then we’ll add step by step what they can do.
All dojo students are required to have sports insurance in case of an emergency, and we have not had a serious injury in our ten years at the dojo.
How many games do you play a year?
There are about 8 matches in Okinawa.
We will notify you of the details of each game at the time you register.
Do I have to go to the game?
Wins and losses are not everything, so Wins and losses are not mandatory and we respect the wishes of the players and their parents. However, if your do-gooders are going to play in the tournament, please take the time to support them, as their support will be of great help to you.
