Arm yourself and your child with self esteem.

Karate is something you can do as a family or as an individual and is a great way to relieve
stress.  We teach kata, weapons, sparring, breaking boards, self defense, break falling, judo,
and more.  Each person advances at their own level. There is no set time for how fast one
promotes to a stripe promotion or the next belt.

Special family discounts are available. The more family members that join, the more you save.

Shoes are not permitted in the dojo (training area) unless they are need to for medical reasons.
No jewelry is permitted during class except wedding bands or medical alert jewelry. No earrings,
pendants, etc. No eating or drinking is permitted in the dojo.  

Saturday classes as noted on monthly schedule.

principles or my honor, should it be a matter of life or
death, or right or wrong, then here are my weapons,
