Karate for Kids

Welcome to Kindy Karate Melbourne!

What is Kindy Karate?  Kindy Karate is a martial arts training program, specifically designed for children 4-5 years old & 5-6 years old.

Who will be teaching my child karate? Sensei Sandra teaches all karate classes. Sensei Sandra provides the best quality karate instruction for children, and is the founder and leading instructor of Kindy Karate and OKUKAN DOJO in Melbourne. Sensei is an educator with a passion for karate. For a quick overview of Sensei’s karate experience, click here.

What will my child learn? Children in our 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.

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 6-9 year old kids) or intermediate classes.

Is my child ready to start? If your child is ready to follow instruction, they are ready to start Kindy Karate! Kids do the class on their own with Sensei Sandra, following along with her as they discover the joys of karate. Karate time with Sensei is serious AND fun!

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!

Our Location:

Kindy Karate classes are delivered in our full-time, private venue, located at 9 Hunt Street, Coburg. This allows us to control the environment, ensuring safety, cleanliness, and uninterrupted class time. Sensei Sandra provides the inspiration!

Kindy Karate has been the best activity my daughter has done; she absolutely loves it. She looks forward to each and every week and enjoys practicing at home.
