A child-centered class designed to instill confidence in children, empower them to find their voices to advocate for themselves, as well as protect and defend themselves using logic and reasoning first or karate as a last resort. We use games, skits, and positive-behavior homework, and self-defense skills together to create a fun and important class for your child. Come join us!

Youth Martial Arts (Ages 9-13)

Participants in Youth Martial Arts will learn karate and kung-fu in a structured and goal-centered environment. Students develop confidence, pride, discipline, respect, strategies for self-improvement, and self-defense skills under the philosophy that “Problems are solved with logic and reason. We use our voice. Karate is only used in self-defense.”
