Our basic karate program teaches the fundamentals of karate training. In it we emphasize fitness through power karate techniques and common sense, as well as practical self defense. In addition, we teach 36 valuable life skills and principles for successful living. For example, this month we are studying respect, self respect, and how to earn respect from others. The purpose of the basic program is to help prepare students to commit to earning their black belt through our Black Belt Training program and qualify for our Black Belt Leadership program.
Black Belt Training
Our Black Belt Training program contains everything that is in our Basic program, plus these students learn all the techniques needed to become a black belt, including exciting, fun, yet safe sparring drills which really build confidence. In this program students also learn how to handle the safe, traditional karate weapons nun-chucks, bo-staff, and short sticks which increase hand eye coordination, which translates into greater mental focus which leads to better grades.
These students also do board breaking to test to see if they can apply the principles of power behind a strike or kick. They receive unlimited classes to ensure they are ready for their black belt test and train for an hour per class instead of the standard 45 minutes for the basic program. Finally, students in this program wear a special uniform, half black, half white, so all the karate teachers at this school will know he/she is training to become a black belt for which he will receive more respect which in turn will teach him to be more respectful to others.
Black Belt Leadership
With all the distractions facing children these days we see most grow up to be leaders, followers or loners. All black belts tend to be leaders, but to make extra sure we also offer specific leadership training in this program.
We define a leader as someone who has the ability, confidence, and dependability to influence others in a positive manner. In this program we teach our students how to be leaders through teaching them personal development and leadership principles, and providing leadership opportunities in class.
Our Black Belt Leadership Program is designed to take our students to Black Belt and beyond. It includes all the same benefits as the Black Belt Training and Basic Programs plus more. To sharpen their focus these students also train with some additional weapons: the kama, the sword, and double nun-chucks. They do actual sparring matches not just the drills which helps quicken reflexes. They also receive lots of recognition in the karate school because they wear the full black "leadership" uniform. They learn additional curriculum such as grappling and more acrobatic kicks. They receive a special leadership only class Saturday mornings to help sharper their skills with the extra curriculum and learn their leadership skills.
They receive an hour and 15 minutes of training per class. Because of the extra training involved these students promote straight to a first degree black belt rather than the standard plain black belt.
Our Instructor Certification program is for Black Belts desiring to become a professional karate teachers or perhaps open their own branch of Bobby Lawrence Karate.
