Program for kids
If it seems as if our classes are chaotic – i.e. Without a system, then it is because it has been designed so for one purpose only. That is to suit our children. More than anything else, kids need to be kids. Their training is not geared for mortal combat as it is for adults. Instead, the emphasis is on the development of self-discipline, agility, balance, co-ordination, self-confidence, and some basic defense skills. And most importantly, it is Fun! After all, if they don’t enjoy it, they won’t learn it.
Ashihara Karate presents special classes for children from the age of 3 and upwards. These classes have been designed especially for children, keeping in mind of factors such as multicultural Canadian environment, school seasons and weather to name a few. Classes are typically twice a week, of one hour per session. The Program was designed in keeping mind that each child is different and have a different pace of learning.
Program for Adults
The essence of Ashihara Karate is a strategy that enables its practitioners to convert defence into offence. It stresses the development of flexibility, power, and speed, emphasising stretching, conditioning and practice. The principles behind the movements one learns, reinforce the essential points for any physical activity – the use of the hips to enhance power (as in throwing or hitting a baseball), keeping one’s weight centred and low (as when hitting a tennis ball), and so forth.
In the classes at Ashihara Gym, you will learn basic punches, kicks, and blocks. You will apply them in combinations, working with partners in controlled fighting situations. You will learn specific self-defence techniques – how to throw someone who grabs from behind, how to counter various frontal attacks. Classes consist of both practising basic techniques, and application of them in varied situations, so whether you are there for the first or twentieth or even your hundredth time, there will be familiar things to refine and new things to learn. Sessions will run continuously. Karate is not merely a tool for protection in the face of danger. It can also provide a sense of confidence, strength and alertness in today’s world. Don’t miss this opportunity for you or your children to explore this sport/art form which is both practical and enriching. Here at Pine Tree Fitness Ashihara Gym, you can learn Japan’s most popular style of Karate from one of its most versatile instructors.
