GET HOOKED ON KARATE IN PRETORIA !!!!

Are your kid struggling with self-esteem, to focus or with coordination or needs more interaction with other kids to improve social skills? Is he/she too bossy, too shy, or perhaps just a little hyper, karate classes can help your child learn many important life skills to improve certain skills or aspects of life.

Solis Ortus Karate Club can help you to help your child to improve in exactly that. Our kids are more on the phones these days and what better way to help them by attending a good workout, get fit, improve their concentration skills, build their self-esteem, teach them respect for others and themselves, improve their behaviour and above all their grades.

Solis Ortus provides classes from as young as 4 years old. We have four class time schedules on a Monday and Wednesday starting with the Minis (45 minutes), White to Yellow (1 hour), orange to Blue (1 hour), Purple to Junior Black (1 hour) and Seniors Brown – Black (1.30 hours). We also have classes on a Tuesday and Thursday.

You are welcome to attend two classes for free and get hooked on karate. We are looking forward to meet you all. One way JKA, JKA one way!

Parents, please print this page and read it to your children.
