What is the difference between karate and tae kwon do?
Tae kwon do is a sport with a primary focus on kicking. Karate is a more holistic martial art where both the hands and feet are used. Our karate program also includes a significant emphasis on self-defense and character development.
Do you offer a free trial?
Yes, we offer a free week of classes. After the first week, we then offer a two month try out period at a nominal price. The two month trial will give you ample opportunity to decide whether or not you want to continue with our karate program.
Do I need to wear a uniform?
Yes, you will be able to use a loaner uniform during your free week. The two month trial package includes a uniform that is yours to keep.
How old does my child need to be?
We find that 3 ½ to 4 years old is a great time to begin martial arts training. At the core of martial arts training are the principals of discipline. The earlier a child can learn to self-discipline the more successful they will be in life.
Will martial arts make my child more aggressive?
Absolutely not! A good martial arts program will make your child LESS aggressive. The focus of the training must be on respect, honor, and personal integrity, not ego and pride.
My child has ADHD. Will martial arts training help them focus?
Yes, our programs are designed to help children with ADD/ADHD learn how to focus and concentrate which, in turn, helps them build their self-esteem. Within six months to a year, if a student trains at least 3 times a week, you will not even know they have ADD or ADHD .
I am adult, am I too old to begin martial arts training?
Any age is a great time to develop your true potential. While our youngest students may find some of the physical skills easier to acquire than an adult, we work with each student on an individually personalized program.
I have trained in a martial art before. Will my rank carry over?
We do allow you to carry over your current rank and wear your belt. However, we will require you to start at the beginning of our program to catch you up to your current rank level.
Do you offer multiple family member discounts?
We offer multiple family member discounts on our one year course plans. We give 30% off for the 2nd and 3rd family member and more for the 4th.
