Enrol Your Child in Fun Filled Martial Arts Classes Guaranteed to Boost Your Child’s Focus and Confidence

Martial Arts Improve Mental and Physical Health in Children. It’s Not All About Kicking and Punching.

Most parents want their children to have skills that can help them navigate through life, especially when parents are not around to supervise them. Furthermore, every parent wants their child to remain focused in school, and act with confidence when tackling life challenges. Enrolling your child in Kassis Karate and Martial Arts Academy Melbourne improves their confidence and self-esteem, which plays a crucial role in helping the child succeed in life.  Improved self-image also gives your child a confident mindset.

Do You Feel Frustrated by Some Behaviors in Your Child? 

  • Does your child lack focus and the ability to follow rules?
  • Is your child shy, has low self-esteem, and clingy especially when trying new stuff?
  • Does your child hate sport and shy away from team sports?
  • Has your child been bullied or lost self-confidence and self-esteem?

If your child is struggling with one of the above, enroll them in Kids Karate Classes Melbourne. From our experience, parents who have enrolled their kids in our karate classes have reported that their child:

  • Found it easy to focus on difficult tasks from start to finish after enrolling in kids karate classes.
  • Was able to focus for longer periods of time.
  • Stopped coming home from school angry due to some form of bullying.
  • Their self-esteem and confidence increased dramatically.

Parents also confessed that they felt helpless and unsure on how to deal with their child before they started taking karate classes. Furthermore, the parents were concerned about the safety of their child while in school. Enrolling their children in a Karate Center provided the relief these parents needed because they were seeing improvement in their kids.

Parents are often amazed at the progress their child makes in a few weeks after enrolling in a martial arts class. The children start to show improved confidence, focus at home and school, and improved coordination. Children also start to learn bully prevention strategies shortly after enrolling in a karate class.


Martial Arts Melbourne provides children with an opportunity to exercise in a non-competitive environment. Enrolling your child in sport improves their fitness by providing whole-body workouts that keep them physically fit and mentally alert. Martial arts also improves the core strength and balance within weeks.

Martial arts help children learn because children learn best through repetition. When children learn through a fun activity like karate, they absorb most of what they have learnt. This leads to better grades. The improved focus that your child develops because of taking part in Beginner Martial Arts for Kids also helps them attain better grades. The first four lessons in martial arts teaches the child how to focus, which sharpens their minds.

Martial arts classes emphasize character development, helping children learn important life skills, for example, respect, resilience, perseverance, and goal setting. Martial arts are increasingly becoming the most preferred tool for teaching children the skills they need to succeed in life.

Self-defense martial arts will help your child stand up for themselves and others without necessarily engaging in violence.  Karate helps kids deal with bullies through role-play, reading body language, and tonal variation.

Apart from “keeping the bad guys away”, martial arts is also fun for kids to learn. The lessons are mixed with fun activities that help children learn more. The lessons are structured and carried out in a highly disciplined environment. This helps them learn to build a healthier body and mind.

As a caring parent, you should strive to equip your children with skills that can help them live a meaningful life, especially when you’re not around. Martial Arts For Kids Melbourne will help your child remain focused at school, and become both respectful and respected.

  • The greatest gift given to my girls from training with Kassis Karate has been the exceptional mentoring and encouragement that has lead to an enormous sense of worth that I hope they will carry for life.

  • My daughter, Isabella absolutely loves her karate classes at the academy. We looked at a few classes on offer around our neighborhood but found that Kassis is the best. We find the classes more structured, friendly and fun for her.
    Maria Alquiza
  • For us as parents Kassis Karate ticks a lot of boxes: each week our kids learn self-defence, manners, respect, discipline. The Senseis get the best out of the kids, and we have found them very approachable at every level of our children’s development. Our kids love it! We often catch them practicing at home amongst themselves!

  • Two years ago Dimitri started as a Little Samurai having fun mixing with other young kids. Now he's a cadet belt with much more focus and discipline. For us karate is perfect at promoting and nurturing this and more. Dimitri loves the environment at Kassis Karate. He keeps reminding us that 'a black belt is a white belt that never gave up'. We couldn't be happier. We even did the Japan karate tour and loved it.

  • As parents we are so happy that we found Kassis Academy. It’s just the dojo to be. Our son Nicholas after 3 years of attending classes has become more confident, disciplined and has had a great opportunity to also meet new friends. Respect, responsibility, attitude are all keys to success - this is what it’s all about at this academy. Fantastic people Sensei Con and Rosanna Kassis.

  • My youngest son has had the privilege to train with both Sensei Con and Sensei Rosanna for approximately 6 months. As a father, I have been impressed with the overall balanced and nurturing nature of the Karate classes, never too forceful nor difficult and never too soft nor weak, while at all times promoting a safe training environment for the kids. I am pleased to see my son growing in both confidence and fitness, as a result of which, he now regularly participates in school sporting clubs. My son always looks forward to his next karate class.”

  • When I started karate I was unsure where I'd be and today I am closer to my black belt and it's all thanks to Sensai Con and Rosanna. They have improved me in self-confidence and discipline. I am also proud of my 2 children Steven and Clares' achievements who are both black belts. To get where we are today, would not have been possible if it weren't for the dedicated instructors.

  • After watching my son’s classes and witnessing the patience and kindness of the Senseis, I felt for the first time that I perhaps could do it too. I am so glad I found Kassis Karate Academy as it has given me a calmer mind, fitness, more self-confidence, great new friends, and the sense of belonging. What I also like is its emphasis on the 'why' as well as the 'how'. We also learn about the history/philosophy of karate, not just the techniques.

  • I have been a student at Kassis Karate Academy for about four and half years. I signed up when I was 58 looking to increase my exercise program. I have found the experience challenging, rewarding, and stimulating, from both a mental and physical perspective. My son was a prime motivator and we train together. The founders of the Academy do a wonderful job in catering for the various needs of students. From a holistic health point of view my sense of wellbeing has improved and with the help of the ‘sensei’s’ I have gained a more thorough knowledge of the spiritual significance of karate as a way of life.
    David Trussler
  • I reintroduced my children to karate after a two year break. We were previously part of another organisation, and it was challenging to convince my them to try again. After meeting Roseanna at the initial one-on-one meet, they were easily convinced. It has been nearly 18 months now since joining and it has been an inspirational journey. The principal Con Kassis is a fantastic mentor for my children, in particular my son Jesse. I have seen Jesse's confidence improve at school. I am so proud of what my children have achieved with Kassis Karate. Thank you Kassis for your outstanding service.
    Judy Gatt
  • We have three boys attending Kassis Karate Academy. Each has benefitted in their own way from Karate, be it the calming and focus on an energetic young mind or the increase in confidence from a shy child. As a parent we are reassured by the fact that our boys understand how to defend themselves. We would not hesitate to recommend this as an enjoyable and valuable sport.
    Geoff & Kim Pinner
  • I used to think karate is only suitable for kids and young people until I see senior people, some older than me, competing in tournaments. I thought, this is something I could do to improve my fitness and strength. After the introductory lesson, both my husband and I were totally convinced and became members. The training sessions are structured and fun; and we train with people of similar age in a respectful, encouraging environment. Training is not just fitness for us, it is our socializing time with like-minded people, focusing on ourselves and our well-being. The enthusiasm and passion for karate of our trainers, Sensei Con and Sensei Rosanna, are very contagious and we always look forward to our training sessions every week.
