Traditional Goju-Ryu Karate

At the Shima Karate School we have a number of different programs.

Samurai – 4 to 6 year olds – Here we work on improving coordination and expand the students karate knowledge with techniques that take them into the stripe belt system.

Junior – 7 to 11 year olds – At this stage the students can physically keep up with the demands of the full karate program. They learn katas, sparring and develop self defense skills. Goal setting, work ethic, honesty and integrity are some of the qualities that are developed.

Teen – 11 to 13 year olds – Here the students are finally starting to discover their full strengths, skills are refined and students can compete up to a provincial level. We talk about peer pressure and bullying and what to do if confronted with it.

Adult – 14 and up – The adult program finishes fine tuning the students physical, mental and spiritual abilities to get them ready for their Black Belt Grading. The student must be 16 years of age to grade unless there is a special recommend for their sensei.
