Spreading Throughout Dundee! - In partnership with Active Schools Dundee, Sport Karate East is enrolling participants for our satellite karate clubs across the city in designated Primary Schools. Karate is an expanding sport in Dundee and we are delighted to be bringing this opportunity to your child’s school. The Active Schools Karate programme will offer children from P1 – P7 the opportunity to take up karate within their school and this programme will become a regular fixture in the school.
Karate penalises excessive contact, violence is not part of this sport. Being aware of our strength as well as managing to control it, alongside values such as respect towards the opponent makes Karate a suitable sport for social integration programmes. As an education tool Karate not only improves a person’s physical well being but also his / her mental state as well. Karate teaches the art of self-perfection and the virtue of human life.
At Sport Karate East we teach our students to have respect for their coaches, senior students, classmates and themselves.
The Sport Karate East lessons may also assist a student with their ability to study, as concentration is definitely improved by Karate training. Did you know that kids who are physically active attain better academic grades? Research shows that students who earn mostly “A”s are almost twice as likely to participate in regular physical activity than students who receive mostly “D”s to “F”s. Physical activity can help students focus, improve behavior and boost positive attitudes.
If you wish your child to take part in these karate sessions, please review the Active Schools class schedule and complete the online application form as soon as possible to reserve a space for your child, as places are limited within the programme.
