• Our goal in our Karate Kids program is not only to provide Karate training, but also teach respect, discipline, pride, and self confidence.
      Some of the benefits in our Little Tigers and Karate Kids program include:

      • Self Defense – Practical and street-wise for any situation.
      • Conflict resolution –  The children are instructed that martial arts are not to be used for any reason other than as a last resort of self-defense.
      • Discipline – We enforce good rules of behavior within the class, and we encourage to utilize their skills both at home and in the classroom.
      • Smart Choices – Avoidance of drugs and alcohol.
      • How to handle/deter bullying – Children today face more bullying and negative peer pressure than ever before. It’s essential they have the skills necessary to protect their mental and physical well-being. Kids who know how to defend themselves usually don’t have to because they carry themselves in a more confident manner, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies.
