Karate training for the whole family!

Traditional Karate training is a fun way for children to develop confidence, health and fitness as well as mental focus. Traditional Karate teaches self-discipline and socialization skills. Many parents whose children train in the martial arts find that their children’s self-control, concentration and confidence are greatly improved through Karate training.

Parents are invited to train alongside their kids. 

Kids under 8 years old must have a parents training alongside them. 


Kids/Parents Karate is Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:00-6:00pm

and Saturdays 1:00-2:00pm

Beginners are always welcome

Traditional Karate classes include strengthening exercises, stretching, mental focus, memorization, situational awareness, and of course, safe and fun self defense applications.
