For the kids sessions we encourage safe but fun practices which allows children to develop their agility, body confidence and coordination. The children’s classes are based around developing core skills involving kata (patterns of movement), basic forms (punching, blocking), and partnership working. Of course the key ingredient is ‘fun’, and we recognise that children develop in their own way, so although we have grading events we monitor progress continually and guide children through their karate so they develop at their own pace.
Neil leads a team of instructors who contribute to the kids sessions. He has experience of different forms of martial arts and has trained in Shotokai for 20 years, running the Kids sessions for over 10 years. Like all our instructors Neil has trained regularly under the direct supervision of Master Harada who is the principle of the Karate Do Shotokai organisation, established after Master Harada was awarded a 5th Dan (1956) personally by O'Sensei.
