Coordination & Control

Many children are unable to concentrate due to many daily distractions. In our martial arts program your child will work on one thing at time, learning how to refocus again. They may only do one thing for 30 seconds in the beginning but they will get better and better. Before you know it, they do this at home too. They focus on their homework...on their chores ....on conversations with you...and anything they put their mind to.

Discipline & Focus

Kids develop confidence not because parents tell them they're great, but because of their achievements, big and small and that is what our program is about. We will give your child opportunities to earn his or her own victories. From something as simple as a nod or high five to becoming a tournament champion or black belt. Confidence is built-they get a sense of themselves as able and capable, and tap into that high-octane fuel of self-esteem.

Teamwork & Balance

When it comes to bullies, kids in martial arts don't back down. They have the courage to look a bully in the eyes and stand their ground. This is what nearly always happens - the bully gets scared and backs down! It happens nine times out of 10. And for the one time out of 10, the bully doesn't back down- your child is equipped with the tools to defend his or herself. And if necessary, he'll be able to get away and see out an authority figure.

Ages 5-12 Years Old

Our style of traditional Okinawa/Japanese Karate is called Wado Ryu, which means "Way of Peace". This style is not only beautiful to perform, but also highly effective in real life self-defense situations.

FITNESS

Your child won't be bored in our summer camps. We keep our campers moving all day long. They will most likely fall asleep on the way home after pick-up. The reason why is because we are, at the core, a martial arts studio. We know how to engage students on a physical level. Your child will also get to learn basic martial arts moves in every camp. They will even practice and improve eye-hand and hand-foot coordination.
