Kids Karate Classes in Chelmsford

At Chelmsford Karate, we understand the importance of providing a safe and engaging environment for children to develop valuable skills and learn the art of Karate. Our Kids Karate program is designed to instill discipline, confidence, and physical fitness, all while having a great time.

Kids Karate Classes at Chelmsford Karate Club

Chelmsford Karate currently runs four sessions a week dedicated to the teaching of Karate to Kids. These classes are held in the evenings after school and last for one hour. We recognize the importance of flexibility for parents and aim to accommodate your family’s busy schedule. The Kids Karate program is open to children starting from 6 years old, but we understand that each child is unique and may develop at their own pace. Our instructors tailor their teaching methods to suit the individual needs of each child, ensuring a positive and inclusive experience for everyone.

Qualified Instructors and Child Safety

All our Kids Karate classes are led by fully qualified instructors who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and love for the martial art. To ensure the safety and well-being of our young students, all our instructors are DBS checked. We take pride in our commitment to providing a secure environment for kids to learn and grow.

Chelmsford Karate goes the extra mile to ensure child safety. We have an active Child Welfare Officer, Sarah Milford, who is dedicated to upholding our club’s standards of child protection and safety. Sarah is readily available to address any concerns or inquiries you may have regarding your child’s well-being during their time at Chelmsford Karate Club. You can reach out to Sarah at

At What Age Can a Child Learn Karate?

We advise that children can start to learn karate at 6 years old. However, our instructors can also advise on younger children starting lessons depending on a variety of factors. If you’d like your child to start training in our kids’ karate classes, don’t hesitate to speak to one of our expert team members who will be able to advise you on the best course forward. We’re always more than happy to see people wanting to get their kids karate classes, and we’ll discuss how your child can benefit from joining our Chelmsford karate studio.

Benefits of Kids Karate Classes

Karate helps in child development, improving both physical and mental health. The key benefits are:


      • Confidence & self-esteem: Children who train in Karate are less likely to be bullied.
      • Focus and concentration: Your child’s education can be enhanced, as your child’s focus and concentration increases through karate training.
      • Respect, positive attitude and behaviour: Karate teaches your child how to be respectful to others.
      • Discipline and perseverance: Your child’s school work can be greatly improved by the discipline learned during a karate class.
