Our Little Ninja Program has been designed for 3 yr – 6 yr olds, This program has been designed to assist development at this age group with poise, self confidence and character.

Starting out at only 3 years of age, the Little Ninja program is the perfect way for any child to kick start their Kinder years learning life skills such as parents phone numbers and their full names and addresses. The class is well structured to this age group with focus on co-operation.

Little Ninjas start to develop even further with skills of understanding 000 calls, stranger danger, water safety, and anti bullying being the main focus while also developing good listening skills and coordination ready to take to school.

Traditional Karate – Peter Hollowood Martial Arts teaches a wide variety of techniques as part of its syllabus – blocks, punches, strikes and kicks. Basic traditional karate training, or Kihon, includes both standing on the spot practicing single techniques at a time; and moving forwards and backwards practicing combinations of blocks, punches, strikes and kicks. As you advance, you will learn new techniques and the combinations of techniques become more complex. You will learn many different techniques commonly practiced in other styles (such as Shotokan, Goju, Kyokushin and self-named styles). In addition you will learn many striking techniques that are are not commonly taught and are being lost with time. Some of these techniques have lost popularity as they are seen as impractical in today’s fast paced WKF fighting world whilst others require a higher grade to be attained before being taught.
Kata – Kata is a choreographed pattern of techniques. Each kata has a name and each style (and each association or even dojo) will perform the kata slightly differently. At Ishinryu Karate SF, you will learn a wide variety of kata including from Shotokan, Goju, Kyokushin, Shito-ryu, Wado-ryu. There are fixed requirements for colored grades however at black belt levels we encourage learning all katas from all styles in addition to the syllabus requirements.
Fighting Kumite – Peter Hollowood Martial Arts teaches a number of different fighting (or kumite) styles including: Ippon Kumite (Single attack), Sanbon Kumite (Multiple attacks) and WKF competition sparring. Our emphasis is on WKF kumite and this requires students to have their own protective gear to participate. This is a point based sparring system that rewards fighters for clean techniques that demonstrate power, accuracy and intent
