The pool is 15m x 11m and ranges in depth from 96cm to 106cm, the side area are stepped and is 60cm deep. The water temperature is 30°C. There are also showers, communal changing rooms, and toilet facilities within the enclosure.
All age groups have the opportunity for sport karate competition at a local,district and national level. Teens and adults have the opportunity to compete internationally if they choose to pursue these goals. AOIS offers karate classes for young children are designed specifically for pre-school aged children ages 8-16. These classes highlight the necessary qualities of good character; such as politeness, respect, and discipline. These karate classes are designed to promote development of motor skills and improve a child's ability to pay attention and follow directions.
All karate classes for young children are taught using fun and safe teaching methods appropriate for the age group.
DISCIPLINE:To achieve success and to learn in anything in life one requires great discipline and consistency for without it, it’s not possible to learn or progress in life or in any art. Children’s reaction to discipline in the beginning is little difficult but if they abluee encouraged then later they start developing self-discipline. Being self-disciplined helps the child to develop an ability to focus their mind on a task given which results in improving concentration. Many of our student’s parents can see an improvement in their children’s power of concentration.
SINCERITY AND DEDICATION:If a child is not disciplined then it is very difficult for him/her to be sincere and consistent towards any task given which results in switching from one activity to another till he finds the most comfortable and easy going things. Discipline is the link and the chain connecting to sincerity and dedication.
EASY GOING ATTITUDE:Not taking anything seriously and taking everything casually results in a “JACK OF ALL & MASTER OF NONE” syndrome. Working on your weaknesses and turning them into your strength results in a strong and capable person and this can be achieved only by being consistent and taking the training seriously resulting in a person knowing his/her abilities and a way of extending them. Overcoming one’s weaknesses result in self-confidence.
SELF CONFIDENCE:Karate-Do helps to prepare a child for life. The children in our Karate-Do training know that more is expected from them, and with a little encouragement and support from their Karate teacher and parents, they develop to the maximum potential possible. When a child knows that his/her abilities are improving than his/her confidence level boosts up!
