Rakushinkan Kids!

I've added a page on the site advertising the karate classes that are offered through the Beltline Aquatic and Fitness Centre.
While, Calgary Rakushinkan mainly focuses on Japanese sword based arts I feel that these techniques are harder to grasp for younger people who have not yet fully developed their motor control. Basic karate training is in many ways simpler and the benefits are more clear and immediate than aikido or iaijutsu. In fact, I would prefer if everyone had a solid base in a striking arts such as karate, kenpo, boxing, etc. prior to taking up Japanese sword or derivative arts.
Calgary Rakuhinkan offeres training in Chito Ryu karate for kids under 13.
