S.I. Karate and its instructors understand the need for children to be taught in different manner than adults as well as teaching young children differently from older ones. It is for this reason that Classes are structure by age and experience.
We have separate beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes for Peewees (ages 4-8) Juniors (ages 9-14) And adults (ages 14 & up) While all classes will learn from a similar curriculum, it is the manner in which the classes are taught that will vary.
