The teachings of COR Karate emphasize psychological and physical development and provide young male adolescents with a process for experiencing personal growth through self-discipline. The goal of the training is to decrease aggressive and violent behavior. Students learn controlled breathing, physical and mental concentration, tolerance, and respecting others. These practices result in immediate positive changes in attitude resulting in a decrease of aggressive and self-destructive behavior.
The long term effect of practice is realized as students become self-motivated to sustain positive and non-aggressive attitude and behaviors. In addition, students benefit from the physical health enhancements including musculoskeletal strength, cardio-pulmonary endurance, fine/gross motor development, visual motor coordination, flexibility, balance and power.
COR Karate is facilitated under a strict culture of discipline that ensures students safety, staff safety, and respect for peers and staff.
