Karate for Kids

Welcome to Kindy Karate Melbourne!

What is Kindy Karate?  Kindy Karate is a martial arts training program, specifically designed for preschool children (4-5 years old) and prep kids (5-6 years old). Classes for these age groups are delivered separately.

What will my child learn? Children in our martial arts school are taught genuine Japanese karate in structured classes, helping essential karate movements become second nature. By the end of the martial arts program, kids will have developed karate skills that will enable them to effectively engage in learning complex martial art drills. Our class environment is quiet, although kids make a lot of noise when instructed! Giggles are also frequently heard.

Who will be teaching my child karate? Sensei Sandra delivers all classes. Sensei provides the best quality karate instruction for young children and is the founder and leading instructor of OKUKAN karate school in Melbourne. Sensei Sandra has years of teaching experience both within dojos and within Australian higher educational institutions. For a quick overview of Sensei’s karate experience, click here.

Beyond Kindy Karate…..  We have classes six days a week for all ages.  Pathways from Kindy Karate lead straight into Just for Kicks! (beginners classes for 6-9yr old kids) or intermediate classes.

Is my child ready to start? If your child is well behaved, a good listener and can follow instruction, they are ready to start! Enrol now to secure your child’s place. (Places are limited.)

Since starting Kindy Karate, my daughter’s balance and co-ordination has improved out of sight as well as her confidence. Sensei Sandra really motivates the kids to do their best and instils them with a respect for the Karate tradition, the teacher and each other. I cannot recommend Kindy Karate highly enough!
