What JKAA can do for your child
Our Philosophy on Children and Learning.”
Our students develop…
Confidence: By successfully completing set tasks and knowing that in everyday life the “never give up attitude” is important, whether academic, social or sports. Concentration: An increased ability to apply attention for a period of time. Responsibility: In completing training at the very best of their ability, listening to instructions, following instructions, taking care of their appearance, uniform and attending classes on time. Focus: The ability to think about the information and apply it when needed. Self–Esteem: In knowing that persistence by continually applying effort increases confidence and pride in a job well done.
Communication Skills: Understanding instructions and being able to demonstrate the intended message verbally or physically (body language). Respect: Showing the proper attitude and communication skills when communicating with adults, mentors and the wider community. Discipline: Being able to continue and strive for the best results. This includes the ability to focus and concentrate to achieve optimal performance in completing the set task. Obedience: The ability to follow instructions and have trust and reassurance that seniors or instructors provide information having your personal interest and safety at heart.
Patience: The ability to calmly wait until your efforts are required without the constant need for constant interaction when not required. Pride: In maintaining your uniform, personal appearance and completing all set activities at the very best of your ability. Empathy: Displaying understanding when injury or varying circumstances occur and being able to assist when required. Mental agility: Thinking quickly and applying the correct solution concerning self-defence techniques or problem solving. Perseverance: Never giving up and abiding by the “Practice makes Permanent” philosophy to achieve the very best personal performance. Commitment: Having the responsibility to follow through with training and strive to successfully complete the next grading.
JKAA embraces the philosophy of building on strong foundations concerning individual character and developing worthy lifestyle principles. We aim to reinforce the traditional bushido (Japanese warrior conduct) ethos of improving personal growth with a code enforcing moral principles, loyalty, honour and achieving your very best. We believe that karate develops character that transcends in all aspects of life. Our instructors and mentors guide your children and continually strive to develop qualities that will assist them in coping with all situations in life. We emphasise manners, etiquette and respect as core principles followed by commitment and perseverance. JKAA equips students with the knowledge concerning essential self-defence techniques for assertiveness and protection. Children are prepared to react in bullying environments, therefore parents can rest assured their child will not succumb to emotional or physical injuries associated with bullying. So, whilst karate is about speed, power, flexibility, precision and knowledge, it is also about being able to effectively apply skills learnt in training for everyday circumstances.
Parents notice the development in character and ability. JKAA has a mentor program and provides students with differentiated classes for varying learning abilities. Students learn at their own pace whilst parents remain assured that the instructors are aware of capabilities, ability and focus on the next stage of development.
Parents are welcome to sit in classes and observe the development of their children.
Give your children a gift for life!
