Have you ever dreamed of crashing through boards with your bare hands?
Do you feel confident that you, your spouse or your child could defend yourselves if necessary? Karate might be just the thing for you – and you can now learn martial arts from home.
Technology allows you to safely bring your instructor into your own space through both live and recorded classes.
Let’s take a look at how to learn Karate at home:
Prepare for Martial Arts Classes in Your Home
First, you’re going to want to get set up. This is martial arts, so you’ll need enough space to move around. Training next to the cabinet full of your grandmother’s fine china is probably not the best spot in the house.
Instead, choose the rec room, basement, living room, or even out in your yard when the weather is good— somewhere you can kick and punch without worrying about taking out a lamp.
If you have other family members to think about, make sure you have enough space for everyone.Get the Karate Checklist
Prepare with a Karate Uniform and Belt
Even though you’re at home, it’s still important to dress the part. When you sign up for virtual Karate classes with Super Kicks, we’ll send you a gi (Karate uniform) and belt for you to wear while training.
Take Your Karate Classes On Your Own Time
We offer various live classes each week that you can participate in – and if you miss one, no problem, just watch the recorded version. The instructor will conduct the class just as they would an in-person class in the dojo and you simply follow along. We have a small handful of students in the class so you can watch them interact with the instructor and benefit from tips and corrections the instructor gives them.
Have a question? There’s a live chat feature that allows you to ask it!
What Happens if You Miss a Class?
We record each class so if you miss it, you can still watch it at your convenience. That’s not something you can do with in-person classes! It’s just like watching the live stream, except the chat feature won’t be available.
Karate Training Enrichment
Beyond taking the classes, we provide a whole host of video content that will help enrich your training sessions. There are a set of techniques that you are required to perform in order to pass to the next belt level. How to do each of these techniques has been recorded and you can access them at any time so you can practice.
Plus, you’ll be assigned a Black Belt buddy whose goal is to befriend you and help you get the most out of your martial arts training. These are advanced students who have been with us for years and are excited to see other people benefit from training the way they have!
There is no time like the present to take up a new, enriching hobby like martial arts. Now that you can take classes from the comfort of your own home, it’s even better. So, turn off Netflix for a bit and turn on your class from Super Kicks!
