Premier Martial Arts in Lawrence will host a Karate for Concentration workshop for kids ages 5 to 12 this weekend.

The workshop instructs students on topics such as the importance of education, ability to focus and concentrate and decision-making, according to a news release from the school. It brings the information to kids “in a manner that connects with them on a personal and emotional level” to help with retention, the release said.

Registration for the workshop, scheduled for 11 to 11:45 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 at 3201 Clinton Parkway Court, is preferred but not required. More information is available on Premier’s website at
