The Panthers Karate Program

Our unique Panthers program uses interesting and fun methods to keep students enthusiastic about training.

Regular Tip and Belt Gradings promote motivation and help teach our younger students skills that they can use for life.

Our students learn to develop self-control, self-motivation and perseverance through martial arts discipline.

Setting Goals

Setting goals is the “road map” of life.  On the road towards Black Belt, Proactive students gain the experience and motivation for success by earning progressively higher belt ranks.  Success is the reward for goal setting along with increased confidence and great focus.

And of course they will learn effective self-defence skills as well as the fundamental attitudes appropriate to those tools.  We promote non-violent resolutions to conflict, our methods help children explore and understand conflict through role-play and other exercises.

The basic attitudes of a successful martial artist, and a successful person, are confidence, respect, discipline, goal setting and effective leadership.

Our goal for every student is to help them earn their Black Belt, not only in martial arts, but also in life! By working toward this goal we create an instructional environment in which individual students develop confidence by accomplishing realistic and attainable goals!

Kids Martial Arts

Christchurch Courage
Our students find the courage to move outside of their comfort zone. They will themselves to take on more difficult karate moves and skills. They suddenly see their lives as a constant, never-ending journey of life-giving improvement. In short, with a deep breath, they refuse to become a victim of fate. They learn to create their own destiny.

Staying Power

Our students find joy in improving their physical stamina. They can walk farther, run longer, and practice skills until they get them right. In turn, they learn not to give up. They strive harder and longer to reach goals. Even if at first they fail, they persevere. They won’t let self-doubts get in the way of finding ultimate solutions.

Keener Focus

They learn to make eye contact with teachers (and not just in karate). They pay greater attention to what each teacher says.

Powerful Self-Control

They’ll refuse to give in to negative peer pressure and they’ll gain a deeper respect for rules.

Improved Focus

They’ll learn what’s needed, along with the skill to “zero in” on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting, childhood distractions won’t get in the way.

Fearless Self-Confidence

Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.

Respect

Through the Proactive Martial Arts method of martial arts instruction, your children will learn philosophy and customs to build superior relationships based on friendship and mutual respect. “To get respect one must first give respect.”

Discipline

Our students learn to develop self-control, self-motivation and perseverance through martial arts discipline.

Goal Setting

Setting goals is the “road map” of life. It has been said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” On the road towards a Black Belt, the Proactive student gains the experience and motivation for success by earning progressively higher belt ranks. Success is the reward for goal setting.

Self-Defence

And of course they will learn effective and powerful self-defence skills, (after all, we are a Karate School), as well as the fundamental attitudes appropriate to those tools. The basic attitudes of a successful martial artist, and a successful person, are confidence, respect, discipline, goal setting and effective leadership.

Black Belt Excellence

Our goal for every student is to help them earn their Black Belt not only in martial arts, but also in life! By working toward this goal we create an instructional environment in which individual students develop confidence by accomplishing realistic and attainable goals.

Towering Role-Model

Teachers
As you might guess, all of this couldn’t have happened unless we had the very best teachers. To make sure we have the very best, each of our teachers have years of experience in our system and has been thoroughly trained in positive teaching methods. Instructors are constantly up dating their teaching mythologies to provide the best possible service.

If you have any questions, feel free to talk to any instructor or program director. We believe strongly in the value of our program for all ages – but especially for the young. Our highest goal is for your child to become a black belt, not only in martial arts, but also in life!
