Does karate influence the height of children

Here you can see children of the first group meditating at the beginning of the lesson


Afterwards, basic techniques (punches and kicks while standing and moving, steps and turns, simple block techniques) are practiced in the beginner's training. In the advanced training, the first Katas (Sanchin, Kanshiwa), Hojo Undo and Kyu Kumite exercises are also learned. Free fighting is also practiced under close supervision by the trainer.


What hour should I go?

In principle, every child can come to either of the two training sessions, but experience has shown that one training session is certainly sufficient for one child. The children should therefore decide on one of the two lessons. It is not a problem if an advanced child attends the first lesson and refreshes the basics or a child from the beginner group "sniffs" the advanced learners.


Karate is a disciplined sport and it is important and useful for children to learn some rules. Important "dojo rules", which are also helpful in everyday life, are, for example, greeting ("rei") when entering and when leaving the dojo, good behavior during training (no shouting, no disturbing), wearing a clean one Tightening and the concentrated and motivated execution of the exercises.


It is particularly important to be very polite to older fellow practitioners. They, in turn, must treat their younger fellow practitioners with great decency and care. That means the children respect and help each other in order to achieve the common goal, namely to become a good, self-confident fighter and a strong, calm person.


If you are interested, just come and visit us with your parents at the training time on Friday at 6pm or 7pm (it is best to be there a few minutes beforehand, training pants and a T-shirt are sufficient for the trial training). Then you can just take part and see if karate is something for you. If you like it, you can come and try it three to four times and only then have to decide together with your parents whether you want to continue. If so, you can register at TSV Adlersberg using the relevant registration form. The form is also available under the menu item Download on this page.


If you want to inquire in advance or have questions about karate training, you can simply call Michaela or write an e-mail. You can also use our contact form.

The costs for children up to the age of 14 are currently € 75.00 per year. More details can be found on the TSV Adlersberg website under Membership.


The karate suit is called Gi, the belt Obi. It is advisable to buy a gi only when or after registering (a white obi is always included). A simple suit, which is available for around € 20.00, is certainly sufficient for children. You can buy it in larger sports shops or simply on the Internet. The size of the suit is usually given as the height. Since the suits can easily shrink, if in doubt you should buy one size larger. In addition, children should have fist protectors for Jiyu Kumite (free fight), which are available for less than € 20.00.



There is a kyu exam (belt exam) for the children about twice a year. Taking an exam is not compulsory but of course makes sense because it allows the children to see their own progress. If a child does not feel that safe yet, they can skip one exam and take the next one. If you are not sure, you can ask a trainer beforehand whether he / she is "ready for the exam".
