Beginners - Kids Karate

The beginner program at NYGKA is a place where children can have fun and, simultaneously, learn valuable life skills. While they learn the basic techniques that will become the foundation of their karate training, they will progress through a series of eight personal development stripes: Focus, Control, Balance, Teamwork, Coordination, Discipline, Fitness and Memory. The beginner program is perfect for students ages 5-11; students between 3 and 5 years of age qualify for our Tiny Tigers preschool program and students over the age of 11 may benefit more from our Teen/Adult karate program. We would love to help find which program would be best for your child — please fill out the form below so we can get in touch!
