Family. Such an important concept and karate is an ideal activity for families because it allows people of all ages to train together in the same class. At Shizoku Martial Arts parents and children may train together and learn at the same rate and of course brothers and sisters of all ages may also train in the same class. This creates a unique training environment that is more suited to some people than a specific kids or adults class.
Sharing an activity keeps families closer in the following ways, as they say “families who play together stay together”. This is because :
- It offers the family a common interest, always giving them something to talk and laugh about.
- While a hierarchy exists at home, in the dojo all family members are equal, this allows parents to establish a relationship as friends with their children.
- Training in karate allows families to set goals together, and work as a team for their achievement.
Family classes are also great for solo parents who want to work on their own fitness and self defence while being able to have their children in the same class learning with them.
