Being the largest children’s karate group in the UK we often get quiet, shy kids through the door, or children who have experienced bullying, violence or abuse. The change we see in those kids over the course of a year or two is something else. The quiet kids are volunteering to take part in school concerts, the ones with short fuses are much calmer and more controlled. Academic achievement also shows a definite increase. The feedback we have had from parents in that their kids are doing much better at school because they are more attentive and disciplined.

Many Sama Karate Kids have shown dramatic changes in their lives, such as a higher self-esteem and confidence which has contributed to better improvement with their school work and social skills.The Sama Karate Kids program is a well-rounded learning and improving activity teaching important values.We also emphasise that karate is not to be used in school or for fun. We at Sama Organisation look forward to working with you and your child.From this system, we have become the largest children’s karate group in the South of England teaching in over 350 junior and primary schools. We also teach in over 45 leisure & community centre’s.

SAMA KARATE CLASSES PROMOTE:

DISCIPLINE

Discipline is one of the most important parts of our karate training. Children learn this from us at the very start as they are taught to line up in class, act on order, learn to behave, control their anger, control their techniques. they learn that karate is not to be used to hurt people either at school or outside.

RESPECT

From the start our young students learn to respect other children within the class or outside the class. We feel this is important as without respect in the dojo a karate student would become a danger to themselves and to others.

SELF-DEFENCE

Our Students are taught that karate is only to be used as a means of Self-protection. The philosophy of karate is that the first move starts with a defensive one and not an attack.

CONFIDENCE

Mixing with other children in class decreases separation anxiety and helps children gain more confidence. We also run for children’s inter-club competitions a year with many children winning trophies and medals. In time we find that many children start to build confidence in themselves helping them at school and with their social skills.

CO-ORDINATION

Karate is great for all-around co-ordination, it applies the left and also right side of the brain, which is not normally used. Through time we find children can manage many complicated combinations of hand and leg techniques.

GOOD MANNERS

Etiquette is an old-fashioned word to some people, but good manners cost nothing and this is part of our teaching.

HEALTHY EXERCISE

Within the Sama system children enjoy what be boring and tedious exercise. Our system gives them the full benefit of an all-around healthy exercise program building a healthy body the future, giving them strong bones, muscles and fitness.
