When we talk about building a foundation in our toddler martial artists, we aren’t just talking about kicks and punches. Unlike other sports and activities, the discipline of karate believes that the mental and emotional lessons are just as important as the physical ones…if not more. Though our toddler students may be young, they will still be expected to address their instructors respectfully, control themselves during class time, demonstrate patience when they can’t master a move on their first try, and treat one another with kindness. These are skills that won’t just help them advance through our curriculum, but will translate into better grades in school, improved behavior at home, and positive lifestyle habits that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Above all, students at Keith Elkins Karate enjoy their training. We believe that in order to become amazing martial artists one day, students have to develop a love for the sport first! Instead of just using repetition, we teach our toddlers important techniques, stances, and moves through fun games and creative activities. As they laugh and get their energy out, they won’t even realize how much they’re learning!
Creating Positive Relationships
Developing good social skills is an essential step of childhood development. As students learn the values that Keith Elkins Karate teaches, they will also create positive relationships with both their instructors and their fellow students. Toddler-aged students will learn how to communicate, be aware of the feelings of others, and build meaningful friendships. As students partake in our many activities, games, and drills that require them to work with others, we have seen hundreds of friendships form within our school. We are proud of our strong community of young martial artists who look forward to spending time together in class, take care of one another, and help each other become the best martial artists the
