How many times per week does a child need
to attend class? We basically played with everything over the
past 20 years for how often kids should attend Karate classes. We found that 2 classes per
week is solid, anything less they generally don’t retain what they saw the week before
so you spend a lot of time having to go back over. At the same time, just because they’re
training 3-4 times a week doesn’t necessary make it better. What some Karate schools will
try to do is try to promote the unlimited classes, come every single day but then it
almost creates a pressure on the family that you really need to be there every day and
that’s not necessary. What we do in our system is we have different levels of membership
that allows for different numbers of days by choice. And then at that point we try to
create the culture that the martial arts school is a fun place to be. We have roles models
and we want kids in that type of environment but you’re there because you want to be there
not because of any pressure that you feel that you have to be there for the 3rd or more
training and make this your whole life. People are busy, they’ve got to be able to fit
in other activities.
