The Kids Karate Program
All of our kids karate programs range from ages 7-12. Students enjoy growing their body, mind, and spirit in a fun and challenging environment.
Our pledge is to help students of all different learning abilities to succeed in their journey of personal growth and betterment.
Whether you are looking for your child to gain more control and focus at home and school, or maybe they need a little more confidence and self-esteem, RSAK is the studio for you. Classes range from 30-45 minutes and are fast paced to best keep students engaged and learning. This in return helps aid in retention and growth.
We view each child as an individual although they train in a socially dynamic group environment.
Your Journey to Black Belt
Starting after their complimentary trial program, students enter in to Basic Training for foundational learning and core skill acquisition. Students then receive an invitation to join us in the intermediate ranks called Black Belt Training Level 1 where they are introduced to longer training times, more challenging curriculum, and specialty skill development. In the advanced classes of both Black Belt Training Level 2 and our specially designed performing Xtreme Martial Arts (XMA) class, students are prepared to hone their skills and discipline as they prepare to take on the ultimate challenge of earning their Jr. Black Belts.
If you would like to learn more about the individual steps toward becoming a Black Belt at RSAK check out more information in the accordions below.
Our Basic Training class is designed for children between the ages of 7 and 12. This class, being the next step from Little Champions, is designed to be extremely value adding and will challenge students through a higher level of training. Lessons and curriculum are taught through 3 main avenues including auditory, visual and kinesthetic exercises. Students learn practical Self-Defense techniques and Forms, which put into practice the basic kicking, striking, blocking and stances from their core training. The goal of this program is to develop both the body and mind, while growing the students in areas of confidence, focus, discipline, responsibility and leadership. This foundation program will allow each child to have the necessary skills to progress into black belt training programs where they will work on achieving their ultimate goal of becoming a Black Belt.
Once our students learn the foundation for their future training, they continue to develop the confidence and leadership skills which will help them achieve their goal of earning their Black Belts. Black Belt Training Levels 1 focuses on intermediate level training. Students will continue learning new Universal Forms, Self-Defense, more advanced kicking and striking, while also beginning a new phase of training which incorporates safe, traditional, weapons (Bo Staff, Nunchakus and Kamas). The black stripe running through the center of the student’s belts symbolizes their approach to black belt and the inner leader shining through in each of them.
Our Black Belt Training Level 2 program stresses the importance of spiritual and mental growth alongside with advanced curriculum. Students now begin using their traditional weapons in their synchronized patterns which help them hone their skills and proficiencies at this higher level. An important component of the advanced level training is to improve the students confidence and control through safe and exciting sparring exercises using partners within their class. This helps students on many levels including improved self-esteem, faster reactions, more dynamic defense training and improved hand-eye coordination. This path leads students through their final belts before earning their Jr. Black Belts.
XMA is a fusion of all martial arts styles, blended together with performance arts, high-flying kicks, and tons of action! At the basic levels, XMA is a non-violent, performance based program. XMA (Xtreme Martial Arts) signifies the transition of martial arts from the traditional towards the contemporary. Having evolved from ancient forms of self-defense, the modern martial arts movement is now more sport and entertainment while still remaining true to the time-honored principles of Loyalty, Discipline, Integrity, and Respect. XMA Class Components include Warm Ups, Basics (punches, blocks, kicks), Forms, Xtreme Kicking Combinations, Weapons Training, Sparring, Plyometrics, Presentation and Performance, Conditioning and even Acting skills. This program was designed to allow students to have an alternative path to earning their black belt, if they are up for the challenge!
Great karate school. We have been attending for almost a year now. Mr. L has a niche for children and really grabs their attention. All the instructors are friendly and accommodating to you and your child’s needs. I really appreciate that they follow up constantly to ensure your child is behaving and growing and maintaining their schooling. I recommend this studio to anyone interested in karate.
