About Karate Kids
Karate Kids is a martial arts program for ages 5-10 that emphasizes character development, physical fitness, self-defense and individual responsibility. We teach leadership skills, discipline, and techniques to help your child lean to think on their feet. And, we provide them the opportunity to go all the way to Black Belt if they want. We have Karate Kids classes Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday at 4:45 p.m. (for Beginners) and Monday through Friday at 5:15 (for Advanced ranks). From that schedule you may choose as many classes as you like. A good (recommended) schedule for the new Karate Kid is to pick 2 or 3 days a week (as consistently as possible) which will help your child learn more efficiently. However, there is no minimum attendance requirement.

Is it Different From  Other Martial Art Programs?Master Blevins Karate Kids
What sets Karate Kids apart from other martial art programs is that we use modern teaching methods in a child-friendly class. We do this in a way that still emphasizes the traditional and authentic approach of a classic martial art system. The format is high-energy with very little down time. And, we try to have a lot of fun with the kids while teaching them martial arts skills. In addition to achieving belts, Karate Kids have the opportunity to participate in Summer Camps, Tournaments, Movie Nights and many other exciting extra events. Our job is to motivate your child to become great and have a great time along the way. Most importantly – Karate Kids is a SAFE environment for your child.

Karate Kids ClassWhat Will My Child Learn in Karate Kids?
First, your child will learn some basic techniques. Proper hand position, stances, punching correctly, high block, down block, twin fists block, front kick, side kick, round kick, back kick and more. Then, we put that basic technique to work in ancient patterns called forms (or Kata). Later after they have learned proper execution and control they are introduced to a very simple 2 person drill called one-step sparring. Later, as they progress, many more intermediate and advanced techniques, forms and sparring drills are taught. Also, besides punching, kicking, and blocking, your child will become more fit. In the process of learning techniques, the class activities promote a healthy lifestyle while we improve strength, balance, agility, quickness, endurance, and flexibility. But, most importantly,  your child will develop some very important internal qualities like:Blue Wave Karate Kid

Testimonials

“Tae Kwon Do has been a really fun experience for me. I’ve made new friendships and have learned new skills. For me, this class has taken away most of my anger and has replaced it with peace. As of right now, I am a green belt and am eager to go back every week. The tests can be a bit nerve-wrecking, but getting nervous sometimes is healthy for you. Everyone is always welcomed by the great people here. I’ve loved this place since I started, and I think other people will, too.”

“Blue Wave Martial Arts training has provided my boys with improved physical coordination, self-discipline and increased social awareness. They are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to one day becoming black blacks.  The confidence they feel when they earn a new belt or skill carries over into all aspects of their lives.  They know they can be successful at whatever they focus on accomplishing and that is a tremendous skill to provide your children. Thanks, Blue Wave.”

Master Blevins does an amazing job at connecting with each child on a personal level in a group setting.  The children are taught self confidence, mutual respect and at the same time, having fun while developing their motor skills.  I am glad we chose Blue Wave! We truly love it!”
