Ages 4-5 attend our Mini Ninja program at Pacific Martial Arts. Through interactive stories, children will learn focus, attentiveness, and beginner Karate motions. Coordination, balance and posture result from the acquiring of these basic karate skills. Parents always enjoy watching the lessons and see first hand the change in development both mentally and physically of their karate kids.

Ages 6-8 enter the Ninja program. Students learn Karate forms and techniques with a partner, with instruction appropriate to their age level. These are formative years, children are growing bigger and stronger. Concrete thinking has set up and these youngsters are able to absorb the physical movements such as kicking, blocking, punching, kata forms and more at a rapid pace. The school lives up to its motto of “we teach attitudes first.”
Ages 9-12 are members of the Samurai program. As students become faster and stronger, emphasis is placed on the philosophy behind Karate - it is only used to protect yourself or others. These youngsters also learn their leadership skills as they are encouraged to teach students younger than themselves or with less experience. Students can practice in two major studios well equipped with mats, mirrors, kicking bags and lots of space.
Students over the age of 13 are part of the Shogun program. Students continue with even more fitness, alertness, respect, self-defense, concentration and mental development in Karate. This program allows teens and adults to work together and derive mutual benefits of interaction. Karate is truly for all ages. Adults are nurtured carefully and each person’s physical types and capabilites are allowed for to allow appropriate participation if there are physical limitations.
