Children's Martial Arts Program

The purpose of the martial arts program is to provide students with a comprehensive series of courses in traditional Oriental martial arts from the Beginner level through the Advanced levels This program has been effectively taught to children in eastern Ontario for the last 39 years. Its activities have been praised by parents, educators, service groups and law enforcement agencies.

Martial Arts We Teach

Our system involves the study of 5 martial arts - Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Lost Track Kung Fu, Hsing I Kung Fu and Tai Chi. We offer the Karate and Jiu Jitsu program to students at the gym. We follow the traditional belt system - White, Yellow, Orange, Green. Blue, Brown and Black. Requirement for promotion depends on attitude, attendance and proper execution of technique. Each child is treated as an individual and encouraged to do his or her best. Our work-outs are fairly brisk and highly disciplined.
Overall attitude is stressed. Students are instructed in the proper ethical behaviour necessary for martial arts such as respect for elders, respect for law and community, respect for property, courtesy, self-reliance, self confidence and leadership. The ultimate goal of the program is "mastery over the self". After a student has succeeded to the Yellow Belt, he or she may want to join the Leadership Program where students develop from a basic Junior Leader level to full-fledged instructors. We also promote the Karate Kids Don't Do Drugs campaign supported by many businesses and service groups in the area.
Of primary importance in our program is Street-Proofing and Self-Confidence. Our Complete Child Safety Program features every aspect of child safety from escaping adult attacks either on the ground or in cars, in crowded places, in isolated places to dealing with bullies anywhere singly or during a "swarming". Our Head Held High Program teaches children to develop pride and confidence in themselves through repeated drills in voice, eye contact, posture and positive attitude training. All of these drills are tempered with the discipline of traditional martial arts. The goal is not to create bullies but to develop young people who have the discipline to succeed in life.

New this year
For thousands of years, Chinese martial arts instructors have taught simple, everyday knowledge about health alongside skills in self defence. Your child will begin to learn techniques to improve problems such as asthma, indigestion, nervousness, simple headaches, sleeplessness, and problems with focus and concentration.
A monthly bulletin keeps you informed of what your child is learning. You are encouraged to closely monitor your child's progress.
