Kids Karate
Ages 6 through 12

Children who attend Kids Karate are destined to succeed in life because we teach them about goals, self-esteem, discipline and persistence at an early age. The traits children learn in our unique program will pay off for the rest of their lives!

Classes will make children safer, but we focus on much, much more than just self-defense. Each level is progressively more challenging than the last. The idea is to have a long-term goal (Black Belt) that is achieved by attaining short-term goals (the different color belts along the way).
