The aims and objectives of Zen Do Kai’s ‘Kidz Karate Program’ are to develop: A healthy attitude towards self and a healthy attitude to sport. Using innovative methods and just the right amount of fun, we teach our “Juniors” life skills and physical skills that will benefit them now and as they grow into adults. All of this is achieved by making sure we have fun!


We emphasize non-violent conflict resolution and teach children to recognise and avoid lures and threats.



The aims and objectives of our ‘Kidz Kickboxing Program’ are to develop: A healthy attitude towards self and a healthy attitude to sport.


We do this by teaching basic martial arts training and basic self defence skills. This inturn improves children’s basic motor skills, group socialization, co-operation with others and self discipline.


All of this is achieved by making sure we have fun!



Specifically designed for 3 to 5 year olds and classes run for 30 minutes. All of our exercises have been carefully designed to help develop hand-eye coordination and motor skills. Your child’s confidence grows every time something new is learned! Your “Karate Kid” will be will be well equipped to do his or her very best in school and in life.
