Goju-Ryu Basics

Kids Goju Basics is intended to aid Benoit's younger Tigers, Dragons and Youth who are interested in learning and practicing at home. It is also for parents to learn the same Goju basics that their children learn. Goju-Ryu Basics has two sections. This page is the Text Section. The Photographic Sections is accessed by clicking on the link corresponding to the Karate Moves in the respective table below. These sections provide basic information, to help an eager student or parent. These virtual sections do not replace real class time with an experienced instructor, but may be what a focused young karate student needs until their next class.

The text guidelines are straight out of the Dragons Handbook (available at the office). Select a topic from the Goju-Ryu Basics menu.

All basic skills photos were selected by Sensei Donna and approved by Shihan Don.

The download times for the Basic Skills vary due to the number of photos in the selection and the bandwidth of your internet connection. i.e. Kata Ichi Bon will take longer to download due to the number of photos.
