Karate?

My Son is wanting to try Karate. He is 6. I was wondering if your children play Karate. At what age did they start? Have they been hurt? Do you think it teaches Discipline and Hand/Eye coordination?

  • I was in karate at 6 and they teach both of those and yes they have a chance of getting hurt but they can also get hurt on the playground. I had a lot of fun doing it. Taught me how to defend myself when my older brothers would pick on me.
