What Do We Do?
All the sessions are one hour long. The Monday and Thursday classes introduce kids 6-10yrs to the dojo environment, Japanese etiquette and language that we use. We use the same training elements as the adults but modified to suit the age range. That means the kids learn most of Kyokushin’s basic techniques (striking, blocking, kicking), they do ‘moving training’ (co-ordinating stances with basic techniques), kata (choreographed forms) and kumite (sparring). They also get plenty of fun & games and skills & drills to improve their balance, agility, co-ordination and flexibility!
Do we need a uniform?
It is part of the dojo culture to wear a traditional uniform. The uniform is available to purchase from reception when you join. The cost is $75-85 depending on size. The uniform comes with a white belt.
Do the kids do gradings?
We grade the kids mid year and at the end of the year. For their initial gradings they need to have attended class regularly for at least one term. The cost for the gradings start at $35. The cost of a new belt is additional and these can be purchased at reception.
What else do we need?
We recommend all the kids have their own shin pads and gloves. Both items can be purchased at reception.
