Karate is not only fun, it provides many important benefits to young people. Some of these benefits are referred to in Japanese as chic (mental development), tokuiku (moral development) and taiiku (physical development). Theses are the same three classes of personal development found in traditional educational systems.

In terms of chiiku (mental development), karate helps build concentration, focus, clear thinking and decisiveness. Karate has strong internal benefits as well. It helps instill patience, discipline, perseverance, understanding and open-mindedness. It builds confidence, develops self control and increases calmness, courtesy and peace – all of which will aid everyone in every endeavor they undertake in life. Thses correspond to tokuiku (moral development).

Of course, karate is good for the body too (taiiku). Physically it is excellent for the heart, builds strong bones and bigger muscles , creates resilience, and makes the body less susceptible to sickness and injury.

In all these ways, karate is profoundly helpful to young people in dealing with the many challenges facing them in todays society. It brings them balance and perspective at an age when these are needed most. It adds a strong foundation to their character.

Join us for a class  held at Joy Park Community Center on Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays @ 6 PM. For more information call: M F 9 – 5 pm (text friendly) at (234) 738-0636
