The Benefits of Children Learning Chito-ryu Karate

Self-Discipline - Chito-ryu karate will help teach children self-discipline.  Sometimes children can become accustomed to getting what they want when they want it.  Chito-ryu karate teaches restraint and patience.

Get Active - It gets kids away from their screens and off the sofa and encourages them to be more physically active at the same time as having fun. Learning Chito-ryu karate is a full body workout that includes the mind as well!
