Karate for 4 years olds near me | Delivered weekly

Looking for karate classes for 4 year olds in Melbourne? In Kindy Karate classes, children learn proper karate movements, kata (karate steps in sequence), and karate etiquette…. all while having fun, gaining self confidence and building karate-friendships.

  • Does your child separate well?
  • Can they follow instruction?
  • Are they a good listener?
Book a trial

One class a week is recommended for this age group. Four and five year olds get used to returning to the same activity each week, and gain an understanding of regular class time to help them prepare for prep class. Four year olds tend to keep to themselves, and need more time to adjust to the phenomenon of group learning.

Children put their listening skills to good use in class, by following Sensei’s instructions. OSS!

Classes are paced at just the right speed for this age group -and Sensei Sandra has her tricks to help four and five year olds feel at ease, so they can make their first steps onto the tatami a joyful one.

Class duration: 40 minutes

Karate teacher: Sensei Sandra

Class Time: Saturdays at 9am

Venue: Private dojo (with free onsite parking, and close to train, tram and bike paths)

Are you ready to join us? Book a trial class today to secure your child’s spot. Limited places are available.

(Ooh, we know 40 minutes is a long time for a four year old to focus! Other activities for this age group around the country are usually finished within the 30 minute mark, but the extra time allows for more learning, and affords children an opportunity to properly warm up and to focus for that little bit longer. (Time flies when you are learning new things!)

Martial Arts for Preschoolers (5-6 years) | Delivered weekly

Our martial arts for preschoolers program combines fun exercises and drills to help introduce children to the art of karate. Prep classes are especially designed for preschool children 5 and 6 years old. 

Children learn proper karate movements, kata (karate steps in sequence), and karate etiquette, and start to learn basic self defence movements:

  • Basic Blocking Skills
  • Karate Walking
  • Controlled Offensive Techniques
  • Karate Kicking & Karate Punching

One or two classes a week are great options for kids in our preschool martial arts program (you choose!). Preschoolers learn at a faster pace than the 4-5 year old group, and tend to make karate-friendships, work well in pairs and look forward to progressing (new coloured belt!) with their peers.

Preschool martial arts classes also help six year olds transition to school-aged classes when they are close to turning 7! If your child is 6 years and is quite shy, for example, these classes will help them thrive in class and gain confidence on the tatami, before moving up to primary school-aged classes with the ‘big kids’.

Class duration: 50 minutes

Karate teacher: Sensei Sandra

Class Time: Mondays at 4pm & Saturdays at 10am. Check our class schedule page! Class size restricted.

Venue: Private dojo (with free onsite parking, and close to train, tram and bike paths)

There is something special about Sensei Sandra’s prep classes. You really need to experience it over time to see the magic (and even then it’s indescribable).

Children are rewarded for their progress, and experience a sense of achievement for their efforts

At Kindy Karate, we have a grading system where kids can earn belts striped with colour to symbolise learning achievement. This is a wonderful way for young children to gain a sense of accomplishment for their efforts in class, and to be rewarded for their progress.

Children 4, 5 and 6 years old are individually assessed on an ongoing basis by Sensei Sandra. Parents will be advised by Sensei Sandra when their child is ready to grade for a new belt!

There are a few interrelated aspects that are considered when assessing whether children are ready for grading: these include technical aspects, spirit and behaviour. Oss!

Parental support is pivotal

Your Role…

Firstly: let your child know that they will be attending a karate class! This sounds silly, but don’t let it be a surprise activity! Give your little one time to look forward to their first martial arts class. Explain that they will be learning in a group with other children, and that this will be their very own class time (parents will be close by, watching on).

Secondly: bringing your child to their trial class early! Also, make sure they have a good breakfast and a good sleep the night before, this always helps for the trial class, when everything will be new.

Bringing your child to class on time and regularly gives them the best possible opportunity to learn and make progress. Encouraging them to practice their karate steps at home will enhance their progress also.

Our preschool martial arts program is delivered every week.

Our classes for four, five and six year olds don’t stop and start for school terms. Rather, classes are delivered every week by Sensei Sandra, stopping for four weeks during our end of year break. Having the opportunity to attend karate class every week can really benefit children at this age.

What to Expect at the Karate Trial Lesson:

A trial lesson is available for prospective students. This helps Sensei Sandra assess your child’s readiness for the program, as well as their enjoyment of class.

Please note that class sizes are restricted for our Kindy Karate program, so a trial lesson is subject to class availability.

Our Kindy Karate kids wear a karate uniform, but for the trial lesson your child can just wear something comfortable that is suitable for stretching (like tracksuit pants and a t-shirt). Our lessons are done barefoot and shoes will be taken off when you enter the room. All you need to bring is a water bottle.

Kindy Karate

Kindy Karate is a high quality martial arts training program for children (4 years and up!). Designed and delivered by Sensei Sandra, kids receive expert instruction in the Japanese martial art of karate, in our full-time private training facility, 7km north of Melbourne.
