We create a positive, motivated atmosphere which increases self confidence, self esteem, respect, discipline, and concentration. The lessons are taught in the dojo (karate school), but that's not the only place they are applied.

We teach children to stand up for themselves with confidence to stay away from those influences. We also emphasize the importance of anger management and stranger danger and how to be aware of their surroundings to avoid becoming a victim.
We offer special events where students can get together in a social atmosphere thus creating more of the "family like" environment that we believe in. Events such as holiday parties, mini camps when students are off from school, family appreciation nights, parent appreciation night, pizza parties and much more.
