The club’s Pre-Competitive Program is a dynamic coaching service for members who have big karate goals like challenging the junior 1st degree black belt exam in the future, or competing on Team Kenzen at local tournaments, or eventually trying out for the Karate BC Team.
Regular Kenzen members who thrive on daily karate training may apply to join the Pre-Comp program. Please come talk to the office if you are interested.
To make sure members achieve their dreams, the Pre-Comp program follows Sport Canada’s “Long-Term Athlete Development” pathways. This means school grades 1 to 3 focus on their FUNdamental skills and then grades 4 to 7 focus on their Train to Compete abilities.
The daily Pre-Comp schedule Monday-Thursday 3:15-5pm. Elementary students are dropped off by parents, & middle school students may also bus or walk to Kenzen.
To keep practices fresh and broad ranging, each day Pre-Comp members either join in the regular Beginner or Intermediate classes for their level, or practice with just their Pre-Competitive group for higher intensity, sport-specific skill & fitness training.
