La Jolla Karate Puts the Power in Kids’ Character!


La Jolla Karate is proud to launch the industry’s leading character development program, Powerful Words Character Development. La Jolla Karate is incorporating this comprehensive program for children, ages 4-14. It forms the backbone from which all students can study, grow, develop, learn and become an upstanding member of the community and a confident individual.

“This full education process provides purpose to what we do as teachers — it gives our students something for which to strive, the strength to explore, and a foundation on which to succeed. We feel that by providing several facets to learning, both physical and mental, we can ultimately help our students grow in a variety of positive ways,” said Dr. Robyn J.A. Silverman, creator of the character development system.

Using Powerful Words Character Development, which includes “The Powerful Word of the Month,” projects and lessons within the context of a fun, organized karate curriculum, will invite students to listen, share, discover, and reflect — and of course, bring the lessons home to their families. Students and their families can use this positive approach to set, evaluate, prioritize, and achieve goals—building strength, respect, responsibility, and hope along the way. They learn the power of choice, the thrill of accomplishment, as well as the consequences and rewards of certain behaviors.

“Ultimately, our aim is to help our students embrace the person that they are, respect those around them, and share their appreciation at home, in school, at La Jolla Karate, and within their community while having a terrific time learning at our facility.”
