KinderKickers are karate students of three, four and sometime five years of age. The Kinderkicker program was created by Karate America in the early nineties to allow younger children the opportunity to enjoy some of the same benefits as the older children without requiring as much memorization. The KinderKicker learns to focus, pay attention, be respectful and become part of a team while thinking they’re just having fun! A separate belt and promotion system for this age group gives our young karate students the satisfaction of working toward their own “black belt” just like the older students. At some point (at the Chief Instructors discretion) the KinderKicker will roll directly into the regular program.
While training in karate each student focuses not only on the physical skills he or she must learn, but also on the important skills that will help lead to personal success in life Learning these life skills are just as important as being able to defend yourself. The program has even more of a positive impact as the Karate America system partners with parents and teachers to make sure these life skills are being used at home and school before a child is able to promote to their next belt.
