Teens Karate

Funakoshi Karate focuses on developing fitness, physical mastery, mental control, intellectual enrichment and
self-defence capabilities. The underlying philosophy is built on the karate maxims defined by the late Japanese
Karate Master, Gichin Funakoshi:

CHARACTER,
EFFORT,
ETIQUETTE,
SINCERITY and
SELF-CONTROL.

For teenagers, the self-image, self-confidence, self-discipline and self-control that they develop can determine, to
some extent, the level of happiness and success that they experience as an adult. Funakoshi Karate can help
teenagers attain:
* Respect for others
* Improved grades
* Leadership skills
* Increased concentration
* Increased coordination & dexterity
* Goal setting & achievement

Karate can give teenagers the strength to say "NO" to negative and potentially harmful peer pressure, and to
replace negatives with positives in thought, word and deed. Many karate students become leaders of their peer
groups, not complacent followers who do "whatever" just to fit in.
