Neil Stone's Karate Academy Programs
The junior program does teach children how to defend themselves...but not in the way portrayed on TV or film. First of all, we teach our students to be safe by using a common sense approach to protection. This means understanding conflict resolution techniques, self-defense techniques, and self defense strategy. Our second area of emphasis is physical fitness. We develop fundamental athletic skills like coordination, flexibility, and body balance. The third component, is what we believe to be the most important; character development. At the Academy we emphasize what we refer to as The Eight Virtues of a Black Belt: modesty, courtesy, integrity, compassion, gratitude, self-control, perseverance, and indomitable spirit.
Our curriculum is a unique self-defense and self-improvement program. Karate, as taught at our Academy, can help improve a person physically, mentally and emotionally. Uechi-Karate consists of three related areas of training. 1.) TRAINING OF THE BODY to include flexibility, coordination, balance, strength, speed and stamina. 2.) TRAINING OF THE MIND to include concentration, awareness, emotional discipline, confidence and serenity. 3.) TRAINING IN SELF-DEFENSE to include timing, distancing, accuracy, techniques of blocking and counterattacking, and psychological principles of fighting.
