We offer a variety of children's karate programs for your child ages 5-12. Our children's classes are fun and exciting, and teach your child more than just self defense and karate. Life Skills are also taught such as focus, goal setting and discipline as well as physical, mental, and social development.
     Your child will learn karate skills, including self defense, kata, and competitive point sparring. These skills can help boost your child's confidence and improve their balance, agility, and cardiovascular endurance. Your child will also learn about respect, rules, discipline and good sportsmanship.
