Pee-Wee Karate Classes

Pee-Wee Karate Classes

Karate for the young

The Pee-Wee Class is for children ages 3 to 6 years. We focus on building self-confidence, improving motor and coordination skills and having fun.

In the class we teach basic karate skills like blocks, kicks, punches and stances. We play games, that encourage team work and improve coordination. Students will learn some basic Japanese language, including counting, start/stop, colours, names of techniques, and more.


The classes are half an hour long and children learn in a fun and safe environment. We pride ourselves in ensuring that your child’s first sporting experience is a positive one. Pee-Wee Students do not follow a belt colour system but are rewarded with badges and a certificate at their grading class at the end of each term. Parents are invited to come along to this class to watch their children grade and to see the progress they have made.

What happens during a class?

Pee-Wee classes are 30 minutes long and the class starts with a warm-up and stretching. Instructors then move on to the children learning more technical karate skills including exercises to improve co-ordination and balance. Children will learn etiquette, discipline and respect and walk out of the class with a new sense of confidence.

When Pee-Wee students turn 6 years of age, they will move up to Funakoshi Shotokan Karate - which is an extension of our karate family.

Hamaara Sapna endeavours to uplift slum residents of Mumbai, especially woman, along with their families. The project involves imparting skill training along with a holistic education and hands on experience to foster “a better tomorrow”.

The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants." - Gichin Funakoshi
