Most Karate schools do not accept students who are younger than 6 years old. Although Hayabusa Karate accepts very young students (starting at age 2!), we realize that not every child lives close to our dojo. We decided to do something that would enable every little aspiring karate-ka to begin practicing karate regardless of parent schedules, location, focus level and cost. This course is available for free and accessible to everyone with an internet connection. All you need is a little bit of space to move around. 

Click on the links below to view photos, videos in regular and slow motion performed by 5 year old young practitioner who has been practicing Karate since he was 2 years old. Now ,your child can begin to learn Shotokan Karate at home. 

This course is perfect for parents who cannot take their children to a karate class or those who wish to support their child at home in preparation for a yellow belt test in Shotokan Karate. The course features the first Shotokan Kata (Heian Shodan) and provides four video angles of the same kata to help your child remember and follow along. The kata contains 21 movements. Learning time necessary to remember the kata may vary.
