Anatomy of Our Kids Kenpo Classes

Our kids class at Bowley Kenpo Karate, while not a huge volume of students compared to some other karate schools, is an awesomely diverse group. It runs from students of a young age to special learning needs. Our dojo culture is, in part, defined because of having a diverse student group. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

With such a class mix like this, it’s worked well for us to have a consistent structure of class. Generally speaking it follows with this breakdown:

  • Bow In
  • Cardio Warm up (5 to 8 minutes)
  • Stretches (5 to 7 minutes)
  • Basics and Pad Drills (15 minutes)
  • Review of curriculum and new material (25 minutes)
  • Karate games
  • Bow Out

There are different types of drills, exercises, and games inside those bullet points, but the end picture looks consistent from class to class. Our kids seem to like it, and equally as important, they seem to be progressing well as martial artists too.

Here’s a recent compilation of class videos.
