Kids Karate Programs
GROUP KARATE CLASSES
Dumlao's offers Group Karate Classes starting at age 4 1/2 to Adult. Each Group Karate Class is broken down into groups by age and skill level. The c lasses focus on the martial arts style of Armas De Mano which is Arnis, Hapkido, and Karate. The techniques taught also focus on self-defense, awareness, and discipline.
Dumlao's Competition Team participates in Open Sport Karate Tournaments all across the United States. Sport Karate Leagues that the Team takes part in, include: Affiliated Martial Arts Players Association (AMAPA), National Black Belt League (NBL), North American Sport Karate Association.(NASKA), Golden State Karate Association (GSKA), and our very own Bay Area Sport Karate Association (BASKA). The Team is proud to field skilled, respectful and successful competitors in adult/children point sparring, team sparring, traditional forms, open musical forms, and weapon forms divisions.
In addition to our curriculum we have added a new class, which has dramatically been a big hit in local and National tournaments called Freestyle Forms. Taking a Traditional Kata and revamping to a faster fluid motioned Kata, they now call "Open Forms". The use of traditional techniques and added Acrobatic movements has caused a stir for all Martial Artists seeking a new challenge.Our Open Form classes pave the way for our Demo Team members as well as competitors in all circuits and leagues. Classes start on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Requirements: dedicated, goldbelt or higher, attend daily classes, creative and ready to flip.
THE DEMONSTRATION TEAM
The Demonstration Team is a collection of Dumlao Karate's finest youth martial artists. The Demo Team practices once to twice a week, choreographing shows that eventually lead to performances at local community events and celebrations. Students are given the oppurtunity to create skits, demos, fight scenes and syncronized forms. We have Demo Team tryouts every 3 to 6 months, in search to find hidden talents ready to come out.
