Why your child should study Karate

Karate is not only a martial art, but it is a philosophy or a way of life.  The premise of Karate is that is begins and ends with courtesy.  This is true not only in the dojo, but also in our every day lives.

Our kids also learn how to defense themselves through sparring and training drills that help with hand, foot, and eye coordination.  We believe that it is better to learn to fight among fellow brothers and sisters, than it is to be in your first confrontation and have no clue what to do.

We also teach that there is no first strike in Karate, and that is it only meant to be used for self defense against people who wish to cause us harm.
