INFORMATION FOR SCHOOLS.......
Welcome to the wonderful world of Hidden Dragon Karate-Do. We are a family focused karate club that runs weekly classes in the local community. We currently run evening classes for all ages in Birkenshaw and Churwell and also run three classes, two for children and one for adults, at the Village Health Club, Tingley, every Saturday. As part of our expanding service, we now offer the benefit of martial arts education to local schools. We have a wide range of services specially designed to help schools meet the criteria of the extended schools programme. However, should you require something a little different, we can offer tailor-made sessions to meet the needs of individual schools.
What benefits can martial arts sessions offer your students?
Martial arts is a fun and exciting form of physical fitness that children enjoy. Besides the obvious benefits, martial arts also promotes the following areas:
Respect for oneself and others
Coordination and balance
Martial arts has many positive benefits that help young people to grow and develop into strong, determind and self-disciplined young adults.
Are the instructors qualified to work with young people?
Chief Instructor Sensei Ann-Marie is a qualified teacher of English and taught for many years in local middle and high schools prior to becoming a full time martial artist. Under her instruction, all Hidden Dragon Karate-Do instructors are given tutelage not only in karate technique, but also in instruction. All instructors hold enhanced CRB checks and most hold current First Aid certificates.
