Tips for Returning to Karate Training for Kids
Getting back into karate after a break can be exciting, but it might also be a little bit scary. Here are some tips to help you feel confident and ready to get back on the mat!
It’s important to take it slow when you start training again after a break. You might feel a little bit sore at first, but that’s okay. Just keep moving and try to do a little bit more in each class.
Ask for Help
If you’re not sure how to do something or if you’re feeling a little bit nervous, don’t be afraid to ask your Sensei for help. They are there to help and support you and will always be happy to give you a hand.
Our Online Dojo also contains an on-demand library of Kata videos that can complement your in-class training.
Think about what you want to achieve in karate. Maybe you want to learn a new kata or get better at a certain technique. Write your goals down and keep them somewhere you can see them. That way, you’ll always know what you’re working towards.
Train With a Friend or Family Member
Training with a friend can be a lot of fun! You can help each other out, cheer each other on, and have someone to talk to during breaks.
Going to karate classes with your family can also be a fun way to spend quality time together. Plus, you can show off the new techniques you’ve learned to each other after class!
If you’re feeling tired or a little bit overwhelmed, it’s okay to take a break. Just step back for a few minutes, take some deep breaths, and then jump back in when you’re ready.
Enjoy the Journey
Remember that karate is a journey, not a race. You don’t have to be the best right away. Just have fun, be proud of yourself, and enjoy the process of learning and growing.
