Kid’s Classes

Starting your child young in karate training is ideal (children as young as the age of four are usually accepted, as it is also a good way to hone fine motor skills), and lots of parents have found that in as little as a year, their children who were involved in martial arts had noticeably gained positive traits such as increased self-esteem, respect and overall physical fitness.

Adult Classes

Martial Arts can improve one’s cardiovascular fitness as well as tone the muscular system and overall power of the body. An average adult can burn over 500 calories in a 45-minute workout. Plus, Martial Arts improves flexibility, range of motion, coordination, and balance.
