Adult program
This program is designed for students are at least high school age and want to earn their black belt. As each student learns differently their is not a hard and fast rule as to how long it will take a student to earn their black belt. However, with lots of practice and dedication our average student will earn his black belt in about 2.5 to 3 years with enough training hours. Our students in this program will be learning 15 primary Katas and several beginner katas. They will also learn fighting techniques and participate in Kumite drills and free sparring when the students defensive skill level is adequate.

Children and Teen Karate Program
This program is designed for students between 8 and 15 years of age. The goal is to learn control of their body, coordination, and build their self esteem while strengthening the body. All this, and more is accomplished by training in a fighting art. Ironically enough the students are taught that fighting is a last resort, and is alway defensive in nature. Through the use of traditional karate training techniques such as Kata and Kumite we also utilize modern training ideas to help the children build 'speed' in their feet and become sure footed. After all, if your child doesn't have a strong foundation nothing else will work.

As with all of our programs we focus on control, self respect, respect for others, Kata, controlled kumite ( sparring ) as well as weapons. This program will aid with your child’s mental and physical development providing a foundation that will follow him/her for the rest of their life. At the end of the program, and time frames very based on each student, your child will have earned his green belt and will be on his way to a black belt. He will learn 7 Kata and will be efficient in self defense. The student will also participate in controlled sparring and has the option to compete in local and regional tournaments if he desires.
