05 Mar Kids Karate Classes in Jupiter: Importance of Schedules
I receive a lot of calls from parents asking about our karate classes in Downtown Abacoa. Many parents post in Facebook groups asking about kids karate classes in Jupiter & Palm Beach Gardens. Oftentimes, parents give their feedback because of personal experience with that specific school.
However, there are two significant factors of how a kids karate classes in Jupiter will be a good match. First is its class schedule and how often the instructors teach kids classes.
For example, many martial arts schools offer classes for kids ages 4-5 years old only at 4pm Monday- Thursdays. Those schools are not able to serve many parents because they need classes after 5pm. Even if the school has the best instructors in town.
The importance in asking about when classes are offered and how missed classes can be made up is a great question to ask. What happens if classes are missed due to sickness, vacation, or dental appointments? Will the school allow classes to be made-up?
Rising Sun Martial Arts of Jupiter in Downtown Abacoa is offers a large variety of classes and kids can make up classes easily. We offer kids 23 classes per week at many various times.
When kids miss classes, they can easily be made up at any time (no time frame) as they like.
The second important indicator in a great school is how many kids classes per week does the instructor teach?
At Rising Sun the Chief Instructor, Mr. Buzick and Lead Instructor, Mr. Navedo, teach at least 23 kids classes per week. We solely train kids and concentrate our staff trainings on kids martial arts.
Instructors for kids karate classes in Jupiter ought to have thousands of hours of teaching experience to be considered an “expert.” Teaching kids martial arts is both a science and an art that high quality instructors can only craft after years of teaching experience. Primarily teaching adults whilst also teaching kids is a significant gap in skillsets for any person to do well in both.
Whilst a person may have a PhD in chemical engineering or nuclear astrophysics – it does not qualify them to teach a 7th grade science class. Teaching kids effectively takes intentional planning, significant experience on the mat and modern teaching methods.
Do the staff attend consistent trainings, workshops, seminars and ongoing education to maintain their skills in teaching kids martial arts.
Having a black belt is not an indicator in one’s ability to teach kids, it’s just an indication in a person’s ability to perform physical movement.
To conclude, when looking for karate classes in Jupiter ask the school about class schedule flexibility and instructor experience teaching kids martial arts.
