The latest club for Prep School boys kick-started this week in style. Dr Wallace, who is our Director of Digital Learning and also a black belt in Karate, welcomed boys of all abilities, from beginner to those with experience. The very first session of Karate Club went down a storm – the boys were clearly enjoying themselves as Dr Albin put them through their paces.
Karate offers more than just fun and exercise; the martial art also teaches respect, listening and teamwork, it is shown to increase self-esteem and confidence and, perhaps the most surprising, teaches peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills. A wonderful combination of skills that most boys will learn and benefit from, without even realising!
