    From the instructor, Emilie De Caen:
    I am excited to announce that junior karate for ages 4-6 at the Miles Nadal JCC is finally here! The goal of the program is to take a new approach to karate in a way that will be engaging for this particular age group. Not only will I be teaching karate fundamentals but there will be a lot of age-specific activities designed to help develop skills that can be translated into everyday life: the ability to stand up for oneself; safety around strangers; discipline and focus; self-awareness and manners; nutrition; and anatomy. In addition to the karate training, once per session a guest artist who specializes in a health and wellness topic or another form of martial arts will be invited to teach an introductory class in their field.

    During her years of study, Emilie developed much more than combat techniques. Karate imparts important life skills, including the strength and personal confidence to avoid conflict; the courage to present in front of a group; and the ability to stand up for oneself.

    At age nine Emilie was targeted by a school bully. Her mother enrolled her in the Karate class at the Miles Nadal JCC not only to learn how to defend herself but also to understand the philosophical difference between fighting and self-defence.

    In 2014, Emilie returned to the JCC as a karate instructor. She continues to work with the speciality fitness staff to build a safe space for learning self-defence techniques, an opportunity to practice indispensable life skills through a highly active sport, and to create a karate program for all ages, gender, and abilities.
