Kids Karate

 Kids Karate Classes

Kids love learning at Ki Salem MA. Our kids’ Okinawan Goju Ryu karate-Do program is high-energy, fun and interactive. Our primary goal is to build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

Learning karate is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and karate techniques. At Ki Salem, we use karate as a system to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.

Our emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of karate, such as increasing self-confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.
