Kenshikai Kids

"Start Them Young and Watch Them Grow" 

Kenshikai Kids is a Japanese based karate style that targets all areas that pre and primary school kids need in order to grow in the sport of karate. Our main focus is on kids ages 3 - 13 where we teach them the fundamentals of karate and from there they can grow their skills and knowledge of Kenshikai Karate before moving on to our evening dojo's.
