Karate is an excellent lifetime activity that can be adapted to your changing needs and abilities. Women of all ages and aptitudes are learning and enjoying karate. We can individualize your training to adapt for many types of physical challenges.
Don't just take our word for it. Sign up for Karate 101, an 8 week program that will give you more than a taste of what karate can do for you. And discover your strongest self.
What our students say:
"It's mentally challenging and physically challenging, but I get the support I need when it gets frustrating" - Kiera
"Even after 14 years, there's always something new to work on and always little "mini-victories' along the way." - Jennifer
"This environment is so different from my day job, where I work with 99% men. Here I find strength, inner strength, and have good strong women role models." - Adela
Karate for Children
Give your child the gift of confidence! Karate training increases the growing child's strength, coordination, and mind-body connection.
More than ever, children need to learn self-discipline, self-respect, and self-defense; karate is a popular, fun activity that teaches all three simultaneously. We offer a non-competitive, friendly, fun experience where children gain discipline, coordination and confidence. Our teaching is geared to the age and ability of your child. We also provide guidance in restraint and control to deter students from becoming bullies or show-offs. Girls and boys aged 6-12 are eligible to begin. Mothers are welcome to train with their children.
In practicing karate your child will develop basic and fne motor skills, focus and self-discipline, coordination, balance and strength -- and have FUN. Students learn fundamental techniques in an encouraging environment. Everyone works at their own pace and takes on challenges appropriate to their abilities.
