This class serves as an introduction to karate techniques as well as an outlet for siblings to do something fun and active together. My goal is for pairs (or trios, or more) siblings to be able to learn karate all at the same time and give them some things that they can hopefully practice together (with grown-ups' permission, of course!). **Parents, please sign up siblings individually** Per Outschool policy, learners need to be signed up individually, but are welcome to use the same device...
This class is taught in English.
Students will be introduced to and learn a variety of martial arts techniques. These techniques may include: Kicks (front, crescent/rainbow, round) Punches (center, face, twisting) Blocks (high, center, lower) Rolls (rolling on the back in a ball) Falls (seated back fall, forward fall) Terminology (counting 1-10 in Korean, names of techniques)
I have been teaching karate to students under age 10 for the last six or so years and I work regularly with students aged 3-6. I am skilled at redirection and patient with learners who are having trouble. My classes are upbeat and encouraging and I work to mention each student's successes during class.
There is no formal homework, but students are encouraged to practice together with a grown-up helper during the week so that they feel ready for the next class.
Loose clothing to work out in Something like a carpet or mat to roll on (we rock back and forth on our backs and some students like something soft underneath them) A parent helper (optional, but recommended and helpful)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Karate is a contact sport and accidents can happen. When we are practicing individual drills, there is little risk of injury other than occasional falls when balance fails. When we are working in sibling pairs, it would be advised that a grown-up is available to mediate any conflict that may come up, but I will try my best to point it out verbally if I see something going awry and will stop partner work if a particular group is having trouble that day.
