Benefits for Children

Children who can benefit from Seido Karate

Overweight children after losing a few pounds through self discipline and exercise, children who have been ostracized because of their appearance, can gain a good measure of self esteem and confidence.

Physically smaller children who get picked on because of their size, often gain in strength and self confidence as their physical abilities increase.

Shy children who are always afraid of trying anything new because they‘ve failed in the past, are taught  how to overcome their fears and develop the "I’ll try attitude" through repeated, successful karate experiences.

Overactive, inattentive children will learn to channel their energy and focus their attention on the task at hand.
