CLASSES ARE HELD AT BYFORD DOJO, BYFORD HALL, 9 CLIFTON STREET, BYFORD
and the SERPENTINE JARRAHDALE COMMUNITY RECREATION CENTRE, MEAD STREET, BYFORD.
Family Class (7 YRS +)
Classes focus on families training together
Learning from each other
The focus of this training is on developing a sound knowledge of the basic karate moves.
We aim to teach students how to protect themselves and more importantly how to avoid dangerous situations.
The class is both fun and informative for all students
Students are allowed to travel at their own pace, their confidence in performing the movements of kata and drills will increase over time.
Students will be offered the opportunity to grade only when their instructor believes they are ready to take the next stage of their journey. The student is welcome to decline the opportunity if they themselves do not feel ready and would prefer to attempt to grade at another time.
While students are always encouraged, they will never be pressured to advance.
a note for older students:
Training for a senior student is more advanced in regards to technique and complexity as opposed to junior training.
A persons ability is taken into account – age, weight, previous injuries, illness etc all play an important role in your ability to perform certain tasks. One of the beautiful things about Karate is that it was designed as a lifetime pursuit of perfection. Class members do not compete with each other as a measure of their own personal achievement, instead we judge our success on our ability to perform a task better than we did the last time.
Juniors (7-12 years)
This class is dedicated to students up to age of 12 or 13. This is an intensive basics driven class which has been set up to help new students of all ages become familiar with the foundations of Shito-ryu Kofukan Karate. Some junior students are invited to train with the seniors while others choose to stay at the junior level for a while longer.
