Karate & Martial Arts

Kid Power (Ages 5-7)

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!

The class will follow IDPH guidelines of no-contact training, masks, and distancing.
