The children's martial arts lessons were started in 1986 in response to the high number of youngsters that wished to join the adult classes. A special junior martial arts syllabus was written to take into account the different ages and abilities of the pupils. Classes are taught in co-ordination with 2 or 3 instructors, each with their own beneficial characteristics. Their rapport with the children is one which envelops the morals which are so often missing from younger members of society: kindness to compatriots; respect for individuals; courtesy and good manners to others.
As well as gradings leading to junior and full black belt status, students can enter the annual sparring competitions where trophies can be won for each weight category. Basic first aid and outdoor survival techniques are included in the syllabus.
