Program (Ages 3 - 7):
half hour class is meant to introduce our young children to the Martial
Arts through high energy classes and fun educational games.
This class should improve their attention span and focus, as well as
their behavior. This class graduates to our Junior Program.
Program (Ages 7 - 10):
This beginner program is
designed to introduce our children to the world of the Martial
Arts. Our high energy classes are meant to teach discipline
and self confidence in a fun and upbeat atmosphere. Our
students are expected to improve in school, as well as their behavior
at home. This program leads to the rank of Junior Black Belt
and continues on to the Adult Program.
Program (Ages 10 - 16):
This program includes all of the benefits of our Junior
Program stressing physical fitness, self-discipline, improved self-esteem, etc.
all set in a more mature atmosphere. This program leads its participants
to the rank of Junior Black Belt and our adult classes.
Program (Ages 16 - 99):
This program is designed to
introduce our teenage and adult students to the Martial Arts by
allowing students to set and achieve both mental and physical
goals. They learn all the same material as the Junior
Program, but in a more adult atmosphere. The self defense is
taught so that students are more self confident and secure with their
safety. This program leads its students to the rank of Black
Belt and beyond.
For those with special
needs, we have a tailor-made program meant to help students reach their
highest potential. Using Private Lessons, as well as group
classes with model students, special needs students are able to learn
the movements and then generalize them in group.
Private Lessons are
available to any student at any rank as a way to strive for their
personal best. At higher ranks, students can use private
lessons to learn non-curriculum weapons or self-defense. (See Shihan Matt for specific details.)
Extracurricular Student Programs
Grade Rewards Program
Throughout the school year, the students are encouraged to put a full effort
in everything they do including their school work. To reinforce this, we
have them bring in their report cards every quarter they are issued. If they
receive all A’s, they will receive $5 karate dollars and if they receive all
B’s they will receive $3 karate dollars. And just for bringing in their
report cards they will receive $1 karate dollars. For many, we will set
goals for improvement in a specific area in which we will offer extra karate
dollars for reaching their goals.
On these nights, parents
have the opportunity to drop off their kids for an evening of fun and
games. This gives our students a chance to have fun and be
social with one another outside of the normal class setting.
Keep an eye on our Monthly
Calendar for the next Kids Fun Night.
Each month, we post an activity the students may print and
do. Once completed and signed by a parent, the parent will be given a karate
dollar for their efforts. Also on this page you will notice different belts.
Students will be given a password for their appropriate belt, where they will
find a list of things to practice and a video game they can play from when I was
young. The password for white belt is SENSEI (all caps). If you have
trouble getting in, there are directions at the bottom of the page to make us a
trusted site which should fix it.
Our Karate themed birthday parties are meant for students of
all ages and are tailored
specifically for each child. We play games and, of course,
learn some Karate. We also highlight the birthday boy/girl's
skills for their friends and family. With many options for
decor and content, we allow students and parents to decide how best to
make it unforgettable. Click here to see pictures
of one of our recent birthday parties.
Every month, we randomly select a student's name and donate
their tuition for that month to the charity of their choosing. The charity
can be any local or national charity and is meant to involve and inspire them to
give to organizations who need help. All selected students receive an
award stating their name and the charity chosen.
