Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Children's Martial Arts Program

A specific part of our preschool and kids martial arts classes at East Coast Karate in Edgmont is teaching respect, and teaching when to use their new self defense training and when to NOT use them.  We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies.  And have more humility and kindness to others though their martial arts lessons.

We don’t require parents to stay during classes.  However, we do find that parents who get involved with their kids martial arts lessons, truly build a solid connection as they see their child grow in confidence and skill as they progress through their belt ranks.   And building strong family units is important to us at East Coast Karate for our Edgmont community.

Yes! One of the great things about martial arts classes, is that it’s an individual sport, done in a group environment.  We find all our students improve in their focus, self control, discipline and social skills.  But the best part is…. They don’t even realise that is what our highly trained Kids Martial Arts Instructors are actually doing.  They just think they are having fun!

The best way to find out for yourself, is to take advantage of our limited time offer.  You’ll find our team so helpful and dedicated to helping your child become the best version of themselves. Book in now!  You will be glad you did!

Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’?  Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee.  They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

Not at all.  You will find that martial arts classes are the PERFECT sport for kids who are not good at sport.  Kids martial arts classes really are an individual after school activity, that they do in a group. 

The journey from white belt to black belt is different for each student.  But what is the same…. They improve co-ordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline.  Plus, they makes lots of great friends!

Our Instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts for kids.  Really… It’s their PASSION!

This is probably the BEST kids activity for children who sit a lot! 

Getting them active, without them realising they are learning, is our skill.  Kicking and punching pads is such a great stress relief, that kids blossom in all areas – because of their martial arts training.

Many Edgmont parents find that once their kids start martial arts classes, they see a happier, more social child develop right before their eyes.  You’ll be glad they started classes!

PLUS…. Most kids LOVE being ninja!
