Our Pee-wee Karate program caters for children aged 5 - 12 years of age. The programs focus is on building a good moral character while at the same time developing effective self defence skills.
In each class children are taken through a traditional Karate warm up, which encompasses stretching, co-ordination, balance, strength and fitness drills. Following this the practice of essential basic Karate techniques takes place, along with Kata (pattern or form) training. The remainder of each class is entirely different from session to session as the instructors maintain variety for the children. A range of fun practices from self defence, controlled free sparring, stranger danger, to avoidance methods takes place during this time.
Unlike most schools, our children's programs do not take a miltaristic approach. There is a mutual respect built between students and their instructors. Children are also asked questions to test their knowledge and are encouraged to ask questions to improve their understanding.
Grading tests along with training camps are our focus, over competition fighting. Our aim is to develop the children to place a higher priority on improving themselves, rather than trying to beat others all the time. One tournament is held each year for our members under the flag of friendship and goodwill so they can help each other develop and participation is purely optional. Grading examinations are held 2-4 times per year at your local centre, so there is no need to travel away for tests. Children also have the opportunity to participate in training camps in both Australia and around the globe, learning directly from some of the world's most senior masters who are more than willing to give their time to the needs of our children.
All childrens classes are instructed by Sensei David Lambert who is one of the world's most sought after childrens instructors. He is assisted by his talented team of assistant black belt instructors, so if your child needs individualised attention to progress - they receive it.
We pride ourselves on making the children laugh in every session and have them leaving our centre feeling confident and with a smile on their faces. Give your child a head start in life and build their confidence in our close, affordable and safe Dojo's. Book your Free trial today and find out more about the benefits of Karate.

Family of four training at our centres
We've had the pleasure of being involved with the Lambert Karate Dojo since 2009, when our eldest son started training with there as a kindergarten student. He has trained through now to his high school years and we feel blessed to have such a good role model now teaching 3 of our children, which is fantastic for their discipline, morals and life skills.
Sensei David (or DJ to us) blends passion, wit, humour and discipline in a unique teaching style which sees him sought after world wide as a teacher of Goju-ryu Karate. We are so lucky to have one of the best teachers in the world right here!
DJ is a friend, and the Dojo is like a family, with our children, and us as parents having the chance to meet and get to know so many wonderful people from different places. We've even had the chance to travel to NZ and Okinawa, Japan, the birthplace of Karate.
We see it helping mould our children into confident, caring, disciplined young people. Whether it's for young kids, teens or adults, we highly recommend Lambert Karate Dojo & Family Fitness Centre for everyone.
