Kid’s Classes

These classes are for all kids ages 5-12. We focus on positive reinforcements. Children learn “There is no first strike in karate” – Gichin Funakoshi. We help children to understand that karate is for self defense purposes only but that it is a lot of fun as well.

Through our teaching and techniques, kids learn not only the moves in karate but also how to focus their energy in the karate classes and out so they can focus on things like school and increase their reading levels and math skills.

Self-Defense Classes

Self-Defense is a big part of our curriculum to earn your black belt. We also offer periodic Self-Defense seminars.

These classes are for age 12 and above to use basic techniques that can be used in real life situations to save your life.

Classes are available on average once a month or by request.
