Adaptive Martial Arts


We are pleased to announce the g.

ADAPTIVE MARTIAL ARTS  ClassAges 9 to 14: For children with developmental delays and disabilities

A parent can be asked to participate with their child during the adaptive class, as they develop initial skills as a bridge to individual success.  The class does not provide one on one instruction, but has peer role models that work with the kids in a group setting.

The focus of this program is to provide opportunities for children to socialize among their peers, and to improve overall development in a fun and supportive environment. Emphasis will be placed on:

  • Individualized effort and progress
  • Character Development by challenging each child within their own capabilities
  • Karate Fundamentals: balance, coordination, blocking, kicking, punching
  • Beginning self-defense techniques (techniques will be adapted based on child’s delay or disability)

The purpose and goal of this program is to provide a fun learning environment that fosters a child’s developmental well being, and promotes a sense of belonging to a community family.
