Safe and effective methods of  teaching karate techniques and physical fitness
*NOTE:  with consistant practice students will develop physically (strength, coordination, agility) and mentally (concentration, awareness).

Loose fitting workout clothing - I will take orders for uniforms (karategi, dogi, or gi) and the cost is $20
*Note: it is not mandatory to order a uniform, however, if you dont you shoud where something plain and white
No jewelry should be worn in class

Students may be eligible to participate in a rank promotion exam if a minimum level of skill is displayed by the student.  Exams are scheduled quarterly (March, June, September, and December).  I am a qualified examiner of the ISKF/JKA and the exam will be given by me at this location.  There is an addional fee for the exam.

General Info:
Participation in karate training should teach students more than kicking and punching.  The students should learn values that will shape the develpment of their character as they participate.  This karate program emphasizes this character building aspect of karate training in the following 5 principles:  character, sincerity, effort, courtesy, and self-control.
