Kids Karate at JKA Adelaide!

Safe kids make for happy parents.

Kids tend to listen to people they like, trust and respect.  Our highly trained teaching staff will share vital safety tips and teach your child practical self-defense.  Most important is that your child understands some simple rules of safety.  They will learn tips such as safety in numbers and learning to practice safe habits in their daily routine.

Knowledge is power; we teach kids to be cautiously aware of their surroundings.  No parent wants their child to live in fear, yet they want to know that their child is safe.

We believe strongly in helping your child become confident and capable young adults who understand right from wrong and will know when to stand their ground and when to run-yell-tell.  We also stress non-violent conflict resolution, how to avoid dangerous situations and practical techniques for getting away from a range of situations.

Practical Self-Defense and Safe Situational Awareness

Champions are always Victors and never Victims…

Kids who learn to defend themselves usually will never have to.  They have learned to walk with confidence and they are less apt to be a prime target for bullies and/or abductors.

Studies prove that anyone who wants to harm a child or has ill intent is more likely to go for the weakest looking kid they can find.  Kids that are aware and act in a more confident manner are the greatest deterrent to bullies and dangerous adults.  Kids who train in the Martial Arts become more assertive and less aggressive.

Just like Adults, if they have a healthy outlet for their energy, they will let go of stress and frustrations.  Watch the level of energy our kids exert in a class and you’ll understand why they sleep well at night.  Kids with a high level of self-confidence are also better able to deal with negative peer pressure and “Say No” to dangerous situations and threatening adults.

We are the best kids self defense training school in Adelaide.

We have specially designed classes that are targeted at children's developmental levels.

We start training with our Fit Kidz classes at 2 years old. These classes run for 45 minutes and teach children's basic and essential skills like focus and paying attention. This class is a great prerequisite for Tiger Cubs.

These classes run on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays at 11 am

When children turn 4 the can enter our Tiger cubs classes which are more structured and focus more on karate basics. Children have specific syllabus they need to master before going for a formal grading and moving up belt levels.

Tiger Cub students are then assessed at the age of 8 based on their skill levels and enter our main stream Shotokan-do karate classes as Cadets.

Tiger Cub classes run on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 4pm and Saturday's at 10am.
