Kaizen Freestyle Karate
Kaizen: a Japanese word meaning - betterment, incremental and continuous improvement.
Freestyle: as we have broken away from the old school in line teachings of Kata, instead we introduce interaction by encouraging students to partner up and empowering them to communicate with each other, thus assisting in their learned drills and skills.
Karate: a Japanese word meaning Empty Hand.
Our kid’s classes are a great way to increase physical activity, make new friends and have fun, but most of all we give your child the necessary tools to develop and grow into a responsible adult.
Our program combines the best techniques and qualities from various styles

- Muay Thai - They learn the explosive striking power and speed along with the accelerated fitness levels as they persevere to higher and harder levels of techniques and knowledge.
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - With its gentle approach to avoid larger opponents with simple easy escapes from locks and holds combined with effective takedowns and submissions.
- Filipino Martial Arts - Single and double stick weaponry skills together with the empty hand applications and the knowledge from weapons defence will show our youth how to safely and easily avoid or disarm an attacker with little or no effort. While at the same time complement the teachings of the rest of our well balanced system and disguise repetition with variety.
