Shobukan Kids Karate Perth

There is more to Karate than kicking and punching. Besides learning the important life skill of self defence, a general karate class covers topics such as PERSEVERANCE, CONTROL, ATTITUDE, FOCUS and RESPECT to name a few.

Every month a life skill theme will be chosen. All students will receive a parent/student handout to take home. Parents take the time to read this material with their child and talk about the meaning of the life skill of the chosen month, and how they can demonstrate the skill at home, school and the martial arts.

Instructors hand out life skill badges in class for students who demonstrate the life skill in class or if parents inform instructors that their child has demonstrated the life skill at home or at school.

Now imagine your child actually learning valuable life lessons, skills that he will take throughout life, laying the foundation for a happy, well-adjusted and fulfilled adult life.

The Advantages

  • Karate, and other martial arts for kids, builds confidence and self-esteem as well as self-discipline, respect, concentration and courtesy. All valuable LIFE SKILL lessons that are continually covered in our structured classes
  • Martial arts is ideal for children who do not do well in team sports, giving them the ability to flourish this activity, while combining physical and mental practices.
  • Many do not realise this, but it is a fact that martial arts training are safer than most school sports.
  • Children with special needs, such as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), learning difficulties and hyperactivity are often recommended to participate in martial arts for kids because of the clear benefits in its structured training techniques.

Our Karate Kids program is designed to teach your child to set goals with regular in class and formal assessments, designed to promote a sense of achievement.

Many of our students that have commenced our Karate Kids program at Shobukan Karate have gone on to win numerous State and National championships and are now instructors within our school.

Karate enables your child to progress at their own pace and is one of the few sports where competition is not necessary.

If your child is lacking self confidence, concentration or fitness then our Karate Kids program at Shobukan Karate is for them.

Look what some of our parents have to say!

Chick
Fantastic! My daughter has Aspergers and the Shobukan Young Samurai program has helped her balance, confidence, ability to remember more than one instruction at a time, fitness and she can raise one leg off the ground without falling over most of the time now! She loves the lessons and the fantastic instructors.
Paul & Sophie Franceschini
Shobukan have a unique approach in teaching children and adults of all ages. Their instructional style is informative, professional, disciplined, challenging and fun. These great qualities have enabled Stephanie and Danika to achieve great success in traditional karate techniques and in the competitive karate arena with a number of Australian Gold Medals. We highly recommend Dion and Michael without hesitation or qualification.
Charmaine
We were previously with another club who after 1yr still did not know my daughter's name, nor could she even kick properly. We have never looked back since moving to Shobukan. The teachers are fantastic and focused on developing the children to be the best they can. There are numerous teachers per class to ensure everyone receives the proper attention. Teachers know every student's name and how they are progressing and are happy to talk to parents about any concerns. Shobukan feels more like a family than a karate class and I recommend them to anyone interested in karate.

So friendly, welcoming and supportive! My son (6 years old) joined up and had such a good time that I joined as well. Such a great group there; for all ages and fitness levels. Thoroughly recommended!
Samantha Lakin
I've recently started my 3 and 5 yr old sons here and I love it (so do they!). My 5 yr old had previously been going to a different martial arts school but this one feels so much better. The staff and Sensei are all so friendly and it feels very welcoming every time we go. Sensei Mike is amazing with the kids and you can see he loves working with them and helping them achieve in a friendly atmosphere. The way Mike keeps the kids focused is amazing also. At the old martial arts centre, it usually felt like there wasn't enough instructors, but at Shobukan there are usually 1 or to instructors for 3 or 4 kids. Thanks, we love it!

We feel very lucky to be a part of Shobukan Martial Arts. My daughter and son have been under the excellent guidance and instruction of Sensei Mike and Dion for 4 years now. They have gained focus, confidence, a positive attitude, and respect, not to mention a tremendous knowledge of martial arts skills and safety awareness/self defence skills.....all while having a lot of fun! Being able to train at the various Shobukan locations also gives us the flexibility to balance our busy load ensuring the kids don’t miss out on their training. I have also joined Kick Box and Burn adult classes and I am also benefiting with exercise, martial arts knowledge and training, and having a great time while doing it! Shobukan has been a great addition to our family life.
