Karate helps to bring out the best in kids.Shy kids gain confidence and learn to be more outgoing and overly active kids find a positive release for their energy. Karate is an art and helps to prepare kids for life. It so much more than just kicking and punching.   

Our classes are very structured, and discipline is very important. We have found that Karate not only helps with physical coordination and balance, but that it helps to improve self-esteem, self-confidence, motivation, and we have seen a big improvement in school work and concentration.   We always encourage parents to stay and watch classes so they can see what their children are learning. 

As a new student your son/daughter will start with an individual instructor in a small group of 3-4.  We teach them the basics and beginning drills at their learning level. 

We emphasize that Karate is only for self-defense and should not be used at school or to show-off for friends.  We try to keep our classes fun and taught at the children’s level so they can understand.  We do skits where we act out how to deal with bullies or someone that may be trying to seriously hurt them.  We teach the “No-Go & Tell” method.

We stress that avoiding a situation or running is the best self-defense.
