Karate Kids

Kids love competition sports, but some children don't excel at them, so those participating in these sports can have diminished feelings of self-worth. Karate helps kids to boost their confidence as it eliminates the need for them to compete with their others.

Karate for Kids

Karate is a great sport for kids helping to build self-confidence, self esteem, balance, discipline, co-ordination and courtesy, while learning basic self-defence skills. Children may start training with GKS as young as 7 years of age.

GKS's Kids Classes
GKS’s kids classes endeavour to provide an encouraging atmosphere .These classes run for one hour and consist of basic training as well as many karate-associated games.

Grading System That Helps With Goals
GKS provides a coloured belt system where all students start at White belt and work up through different colours (Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, Brown, Black Tip and finally, Black belt). This helps not only to measure a child’s progress but also provides a journey to start on. Children are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teaches them life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.
