Kuro Obi Martial Arts in Petersham is offering full day camps/seminars this summer to primary school aged children aged 8 to 12 years old. In order to optimise the attention each child can get, there will be only 10 spaces available each day.
Thu-Fri 20-21 Dec 2018
Mon-Wed 7-9 Jan 2019
Mon-Wed 14-16 Jan 2019
9:30 am – 3:30pm
In these camps, the children will be introduced to the basic concepts of martial arts, and Kyokushin karate in particular, with insights into their history and development. They will also be given the opportunity to learn some of the simpler techniques of Kyokushin karate, and a chance to practice them in a safe manner. These would include punching, kicking, and blocking, and basic self-defense. Coupled with this would of course also be discussion and debate regarding the proper use of this knowledge.
Naturally, they won't be able to train karate for the entire time, so there will be entertainment for them in the form of games, crafts, and videos - most of which will be martial arts themed.
No previous martial arts experience is necessary, but if your child DOES have previous experience, he or she is still more than welcome, and can serve as a role model for the more inexperienced. In this way they can also learn about and practice the senpai-kohai concept that infuses Japanese culture and is still very relevant to the martial arts.
All adults involved will have have current Working With Children Checks, and there will be at least one person with a current First Aid qualification.
