I would like
to involve you in one of the biggest problems in karate, which is getting people to come
regularly to our practice, a problem most apparent with 5-year olds. How does one succeed
in getting them excited, involved, and provide them with the feeling that they are here in
the very best place and it is always worth coming back?
To it in order to learn and practice our karate?
At the moment I have ten 5-year old children in my dojo, and each time before working with
them, I devote a great deal of thought to what to do with the kids today.
So that they don't get bored, so that they don't
become impatient, disinterested, and, I have the feeling that 5-year old children are a
school for psychology you always hope that none of the children arrives tired at the
dojo, because then others will jump to join him, or that he doesn't feel like it
today, or that what we're doing today we did at the last lesson, and it makes him
impatient. I would be happy to hear the benefits of your ideas and experience in how to
make karate appealing to 5-year olds so that they will continue to practice and grow.
