Orillia Academy of Karate Announces Launch of New Children’s Program

‘Karate Fundamentals’ for children aged 5 to 9 years will begin in the New Year.

Orillia, ON – The Orillia Academy of Karate is pleased to announce that it will be offering karate classes for children aged five to nine as of January 2022. ‘Karate Fundamentals’ classes will be held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 10:00 am at the Orillia Recreation Centre, starting on January 29th.

According to Orillia Academy of Karate Chief Instructor Gerry Ramsay, karate classes for kids are always very much in demand. But the Academy doesn’t accept children under the age of ten, for a number of reasons.

“We have always welcomed families to our dojo, but we know from experience that our adult classes can be challenging for younger children,” says Ramsay. “It can be difficult for youngsters to focus for any length of time, and our classes are 90 minutes long. Added to that is the fact that we train on Monday and Wednesday evenings, which can make for a long day after school.”

The children’s program will be taught by black belt Stacey Theis.

“Stacey will make a phenomenal instructor for this age group,” continues Ramsay. “Not only has she been practicing karate herself since she was a child, she’s also a teacher by profession. Her patience, cheerful disposition, and unparalleled karate skills make her the perfect person for the job!”
