Does it increase aggressiveness? Studies have shown that training in martial arts does not increase aggressiveness. In fact, your child will be taught from the first lesson that a true "Shinkyudo Karate ka" never misuses their martial arts skills. Throughout their training, they will become physically and mentally conditioned to handle life's stressers in a non-aggressive fashion. Shinkyudo Karate students are expected to be humble, courteous, and respectful. The instructors in Shinkyudo Karate will continually develop and assess your child's self improvement.
Can I take classes with my child? Yes. What a great way to come together as a family. We have had many families participate in Shinkyudo Karate.
Do I have to attend tournaments? No. Tournaments are offered as optional events. Members are invited to participate to learn, and enjoy these events. However, they are not required. It is a great chance to meet and become involved with others who are in the martial arts community.
