Students registered in this program must be ten years of age or older and have trained for a minimum of two years along with instructor approval.

In today’s world, leadership skills are crucial tools for success at home, in the community, at school, and in the workplace. Our Leadership Program helps to develop leadership skills, gives students the opportunity to take on leadership roles in class, and builds self-confidence among children and adults.

Students in the Leadership Program focus extensively on Life Skills such as knowledge, humility, vision, discipline, passion, and empathy. Class discussions help students to understand the meaning of these life skills and how they apply at home, at school, and in their communities.

The Leadership Program also offers students advanced training in self-defense.

Our Leadership Program gives students enhanced responsibility in class and teaches them to be positive role models both at the Karate dojo and at school. Students explore the behaviors that exemplify good leadership and develop confidence and public speaking skills by giving oral reports on life skills related to leadership. They learn to set an example for others in the class, to help mentor junior-ranked students, and to take on a variety of leadership roles at the Karate.
