The Benefits Of Karate

Juniors (Ages 5-13)


An individual journey…a goal to try and do better than you did the day before…not a competition against anyone else. But learning good sportsmanship to understand the importance of the values of courtesy and empathy.


Earning belt promotions is a wonderful feeling and having a goal to work toward, makes a student feel successful and want to persevere. All of this carries forward into life outside the dojo.


Bullying is a hot topic these days and many people are unsure how to handle different situations. Students are taught ways to handle stress and avoid situations.


Exercise and fitness is important to learn to stay healthy and strong. With children and technology today, many children do not get the right amount of exercise that they need.


A commitment to martial arts, progressing through different ranks, and learning martial arts skills, helps develop positive character traits to stay focused and disciplined in school, work and any other activities.

Training in Karate takes many people out of their comfort zones. Karate is physically very dynamic with a lot of active movements and poses from other perspectives. Many parents at White Mountain Karate enjoy enrolling their child in our programs because it is a total learning activity that involves basic forms, board breaking, kicking, striking, and punching. This helps a child’s coordination, balance, and physical fitness. Karate also helps students learn self-discipline, respect, and focus.
