Konjaku Shin is very
much family orientated.
We believe that karate is for everyone; all ages, male and female.
In traditional karate, age and
sex are irrelevant.
Correct training benefits all, regardless of size or strength.
The very young can train side by
with the rest of their family.
Training is very carefully
structured, to help each
student reach their full potential.
In traditional karate, emphasis
is not on winning trophies.
In fact, only about 10% of people practicing karate worldwide
wish to enter competitions.
So why do the other 90% practice karate?

Many parents bring their
children, hoping the training
their son's or daughter's self-esteem, making them
less susceptible to bullying. Bullying is unfortunately a universal problem,

Karate has also been proven to
an effect on childrens schoolwork. Their concentration
is greatly improved with systematic training.
On many occasions, parents have
brought their children
to attend a beginners course, then once they have watched,
they decide to start themselves.
So, if you are thinking of
something to take up as a family,
karate-do - "the way of karate" is perfect!
