MISSION STATEMENT

OUR PASSION IS CHILDREN, OUR FOCUS IS DISCIPLINE AND HELPING TO ESTABLISH A POSITIVE SELF IMAGE AND VALUE SYSTEM


WHAT DOES KARATE OFFER.

Not only is karate an excellent form of self-defense, it also offers the interested learner an opportunity to adopt a healthy and balanced way of living.  As a sport karate encourages self-discipline and is a way to develop the control of concentration and awareness.  While karate training is much disciplined, the interactive nature of the sport offers a platform for participants to learn and practise life skills such as mutual respect, sincerity and positive attitude.  This, together with integrity – a code of behavior that includes self-control, also helps to mould the physique:  it tones the body, builds muscle power and promotes flexibility, increases endurance and hightens the overall physical aptitude of the body.  Karate provide students the opportunity to reflect upon themselves and their beliefs, attitudes and behavior.  Karate caters for both sexes and all age groups (6 years and up).  Participants have the opportunity to enjoy and take part in an activity that is suitable, not only for the individual, but also for competitive performance. 


BASIC RULES

All training centers have a set of regulations that assists with the training and discipline of the students. 

  • Shoes should be removed before stepping onto the training area.
  • No chewing of gum while training.
  • Adherence of strict rules of hygiene.
  • No foul language or bad behavior will be tolerated.
  • Absence from class due to sickness or due to any other reason must be   reported to the instructor before  the class commences.
  • Please note that no jewelry and watches are allowed;  please leave  these at home to prevent the loss  of these articles.
  • Students are required to stay in the Hall after practice to be collected  by parents.  No student will be   allowed to wander around outside   the hall on his/her own.

 

PRINCIPLES TO WORK TOWARDS

A well-trained karateka will develop inner control, balance and compassion as well as devotion and loyalty, truthfulness and sincerity from the very foundation of karate.  The great challenge for the individual is to maintain self-control in the face of any event.
