JKF Goju Kai / Seiwa Kai South Africa
JKF Goju Kai / Seiwa Kai South Africa was founded in the early 1990's by Sensei Ben Maré, 7th Dan and has been steadily growing throughout the years. Classes are run in and around the Hillcrest, Durban area and all age groups are catered for, right from 3 years old (Tiny Tigers) to adults.
Classes provide an excellent, fun cardio workout which is an important fact in today's modern technology-orientated lifestyle.
The physical aspects of karate make it an effective way to improve muscles (strength), co-ordination (balance) and cardiovascular (aerobic), which leads to confidence in many other aspects of life.
Depending on the belt and age level of the class, each session may incorporate the following elements:
- warm up and stretching
- basics and stances, i.e.:
- practising blocks,
- and other basic moves up and down the dojo floor
- repeating kata's multiple times
- controlled dojo sparring with gloves
