Our Kids Karate Program, designed by Hanshi Ian Pollet, was developed especially for children from ages 2 and up. The ultimate goal of this program is to develop and build respect, discipline, confidence, fellowship, co-ordination, balance, fitness and self defence in all our L’Tigers.
Additionally, PMAC infuses the basics of karate with Stranger Danger Awareness and Bully Busting.
The skills taught to children in Karate permeates throughout their day to day lives. They will be more focused, disciplined, alert and have a better overall attitude.
