*** Before signing up for this class, all students must complete the White, Yellow, Orange, and Green belt programs.*** Hello, karateka (the Japanese word for "karate student")! Congratulations on making to the Blue Belt program! This is the first course of the Blue Belt program, there will be two more levels to this course before your next belt (blue-advanced belt). This session will build upon skills that you learned in the previous courses and introduce new techniques and concepts, as...
There will be no formal homework assigned, but students will be expected to watch the tutorial videos and practice what they learned in each class in order to gain proficiency, and to help them ask questions about techniques they may be struggling with. I will send out tutorial videos after some classes to help consolidate learning of new techniques.
Some Youtube video links will be sent in my messages in the classroom page, so that students can watch videos after class as part of their homework to supplement their learning. Various household items will be used in certain classes (e.g., chair, pillow). As stated above, parents may choose to purchase a karate uniform and belt. It is preferred that the uniform be a white karate uniform (as opposed to Judo, Tae Kwon Do, etc). There are various online sellers to choose from. I will also send a curriculum sheet sometime throughout the course.
Students are assessed on an individual basis, and will not be compared to other students in class. I will take notes of each student's progress in each class and verbally share with each student during classes.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
It is strongly recommended that a parent/guardian is present to ensure the student's safety (e.g., clear training area - free of toys, nearby furniture, pets, siblings, etc), and that a parent/guardian help the student to set up their device so that the Sensei can have a clear view of the student. It is also recommended that the device have as large a screen as possible, or be hooked up to a television with an HDMI cable. Also, please note that it is Outschool's policy that only the registered student is allowed to be on camera (e.g., no parents, siblings, etc, should be on camera during class time). Students must wear appropriate athletic clothing (a karate uniform may be purchased separately if desired) - sweatpants/trackpants or tights are recommended, whereas shorts/dresses/skirts are inappropriate for karate training, and students will be asked to change if they are dressed inappropriately. Finally, having a water bottle nearby is highly suggested.
Students may watch YouTube videos on their own time (not during class) to consolidate their learning.
