Our program teaches discipline. We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school. Oakland Karate & Kickboxing teaches children essential and proven self-defense skills in a fun and lively environment. The program also addresses BULLY PREVENTION; including playground altercations, protecting personal "space", setting boundaries, abduction awareness, and how NOT to start a fight.
Our students are much less likely to act out of anger or fear or must use physical resistance after asserting some of the proper awareness skills and appropriate de-escalation behavior. One of the core reasons our program is so successful is because we make the classes challenging, fun, and exciting. If the kids are having fun, they learn much faster. Come in today with your child and experience the wonderful world of martial arts!
Here at Oakland Karate & Kickboxing, we have our Youth Program, which teaches children ages 4-12. In our Youth Program, we have a reward system that improves the kids' self-esteem. The belt system is the key to achieving that. When kids earn their belts and their skills stripes, it gives them a profound sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.
Integrated inside our Shaolin Kempo Karate is our Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Muay Thai KIckboxing. It is an excellent for kids ages 4-12, it teaches techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, including takedowns, ground skills, and the stand-up fighting skills of Muay Thai.
Most importantly, we train our students to be good citizens and helpful members of society in a fun and non-threatening environment.
