Shotokan Karate for Kids
While there are many great sports out there for kids, none compare to martial arts. Your child may learn how to kick a ball in soccer, but are they learning life lessons that apply off the field? Martial arts is just as much about instilling positive habits as it is about advancing in belt rank.
Our Shotokan Karate for Kids classes build Self Confidence, give children the outlet they need to achieve better grades in school, and are a great way to pluck them out from in front of the television and introduce them to new friends and important values!

Martial arts for Self-Confidence
The health benefits of karate go far beyond the body – this sport is good for the brain too! Exercise releases endorphins, also known as happy chemicals. But martial arts takes this a step further, building confidence in its students. Many of our students begin their journey with us as shy individuals who are highly insecure in themselves. But with every class they take, they grow in ability and confidence. Karate pushes students to do things they previously thought they were incapable of – helping young people set goals for themselves and achieve them. This newfound sense of confidence helps our students stand up for themselves, empowers them to ask questions and excel in school, and improves their ability to make friends.
