SELF-DEFENCE

For many years Karate has been used as an instrument to develop the mind, body and character of youths and adolescences.  

At VALOUR karate academy we proudly carry on this tradition, spreading the old-school values of courtesy, respect and discipline, alongside a well-tested and comprehensive self-defence practice.

Why Valour Karate for your kids?

RESULTS-DRIVEN PROGRAMMING

Each of our kid’ s curriculums are purposefully designed to teach REAL effective self-defence and build the character of our students. We take the time to know our students and each family’s individual goals, and we guide each students progress individually to accommodate their needs. Our very experienced and knowledgeable instructors commit themselves to delivering the best possible outcome for each and every student!

SELF-DEFENCE FOCUS


Valour is the ONLY full-time school in the Tweed Heads area that offers a self-defence based martial arts program. Self-defence is much more important for children to learn than winning points in competition, therefore our practice is designed to teach real solutions to real situations that are appropriate to the size, strength and abilities of young children.

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT


The number one objective in all of our kid’s programs is to build strong character. Our character determines how hard we work in life, how we see the world and whether we are successful and happy. Valour’s traditional Japanese structuring promotes strong character through the development of respect, courtesy, discipline, determination and commitment. We teach our students to work hard, to set higher goals, to accept challenges, to not give up and to take advantage of every opportunity! The positive habits and qualities lay the foundations for every success in life. No other martial art or fighting style offers the same level of personal growth and self-awareness!

WHY KARATE FOR YOUR CHILD
WHY KARATE FOR YOUR CHILD?

There is no sport more beneficial to a child’s overall health and well-being than karate!
Not only does Karate improve strength, coordination and overall fitness, it also provides social, emotional and mental benefits to its students; improved confidence and self-awareness, increased social skills, decreased stress, anxiety and anger, greater maturity,better focus and discipline, greater coping skills and the list is endless. Most importantly, Karate offers the most completeself-defence system and could save your child’s life!

The traditions and practices Karate follows, many based on Japanese culture (refinement honour and respectfulness) are responsible for the development of greater discipline, confidence and moral values. Karate is an art form, meaning that it is philosophy not a fighting style. Its primary purpose is to develop character.

So how is Karate different to other martial arts?

Karate begins where other martial arts end.

Karate is the ONLY martial art evolved with the purpose of self-defence. It was not developed with the intent of competition and therefore, does not possess the many restrictions rule-based, competitive fighting sports contain.

While striking styles like boxing and taekwondo are limited to standing, and grappling arts such as BJJ and wrestling have absolutely no practice in long range exchanges, karate is effective in all areas of fighting, with practices in punching, kicking, throwing and grappling. Karate has no limitations, where almost all other martial arts fail to prepare outside of rules.

Being that a child is already at a disadvantage being smaller and weaker than a likely attacker, it is ludicrous to restrict them further by forcing them to train within a set of rules only effective in a fair match, within a ring and overseen by a referee.

This is where Karate proves to be the best self-defence art for children!

Testimonials
  • My son Sam (11 years old) is a proud student of Sensei Ian and I.M MMA and has been for over 18 months – my family are so happy with the level of fitness and respect taught for others that my daughter (13 years old) has also now joined the dojo and also loves it.

    Sam’s passion and enthusiasm for the sport is constantly growing due to the care, instruction and motivation that he receives from the instruction team and loves to train for as many sessions a week that he can.

    As a mum, I have noticed many positive changes in Sam since he has attended I.M MMA and know that he is much happier in himself by training with Ian. The benefits that I can see in Sam include a great respect for others, a stronger upper body strength which has greatly benefited his posture, his overall level of fitness has increased, self-respect and the best of all is that he believes in himself and knows he can achieve great things if he works for them. All of these things are attributed to the care and dedication given by Sensei Ian and his team.

    I thank them enormously and love to see the massive smile of my children’s faces after they have completed their training session. Fantastic!

  • Being a mother of two very different boys, it was difficult for me to find an activity that was suitable for them both. Fast forward 7 months and my boys, in their own ways, are more disciplined and respectful towards their peers. They are motivated, challenged and inspired to achieve. Signing them up for karate is a decision I will never regret. Thank you Sensei and Gemma for your commitment to our boys.
