Does your young child
They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.
They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.
They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.
Parenting young children is a real challenge.
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.
Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.
The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
Results and growth with every class!
Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.
Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control
Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.
They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.
Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus
Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.
The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.
Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.
The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship
Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.
Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.
The Enfields are among the best karate instructors anywhere. The balance of skill, knowledge, with a desire to teach others is second to none.
Without ego, I can say that this is a world class school. Fun, knowledgeable, caring, and zero politics. Just experienced karate and wonderful people. Their approach is a functional and disciplined based program as an education, not just a recreation.
I am very blessed to have such great sensei. Sensei Paul Enfield practiced with my late master Stan O'hara and through one of his students I discovered this dojo. Every student and instructor is a shining example of what makes karate-do beautiful. I am honored to call this my dojo. I highly recommend this dojo to anyone beginner or not to help them along the way.
Went in for Friday morning class while in Carlsbad for vacation. Having a Goju Ryu background I was hoping to learn some new takes on techniques and get a workout. I wound up experiencing a new paradigm in Goju karate. Wow. Really good stuff.
Paul and Michelle sensei's were very friendly and warm. Definitely recommend.
My son started here at Goju about 6-7 months ago... it has been such a wonderful experience! He is learning so much, Sensei Michelle might be his favorite person ever! All of the staff is extremely good with the little ones! Tiny Tigers was such a wonderful program to start out. Now, in Little Dragons, my 5 year old is a new kid! I cannot recommend this place more! Great place for all ages!
My child has been going here for 2 years. She loves it, and we have seen the change in her confidence level and techniques. The Einfelds and all Senseis are amazing with children—they keep it fun but serious at the same time.
I have been going to this dojo for about 4 years and I absolutely love it!! I am now a purple-brown belt and have the honor and privileged of helping out or "Senpai-ing" with some of the younger students. They have been very patient and kind to me while I am still learning how to do this! Sensei Paul and Sensei Michelle are some of the best instructors one can ask for. They instill courage, respect, focus, and discipline among many other things. If you are looking for a dojo in Carlsbad for your son or daughter, or simply for yourself; please try this one out because you will not leave
