Teen and Youth Classes
Small Class Size
Quality martial arts instruction can help kids in so many ways. While learning self-defense skills students typically develop a great deal that doesn't meet the eye. And they have fun in the process!
In contrast to many schools, our environment is calm and quiet. We never yell or demand but instead teach by example and with kindness.
We encourage kids to work, to think, and to find answers from within.

We do not teach fighting, but we do teach self-defense.
Our 40 years of experience have proven that kids can learn effective martial arts. Things don't need to be dumbed down and kids don't need to be bribed with belts, stripes, special clubs and other gimmicks. We have produced many exceptional young martial artists who have then moved on to college with practical skills, confidence and healthy habits.
Our philosophy emphasizes self-control and self-awareness. We help kids understand that thoughtful work produces valuable results and that they have the ability to accomplish meaningful things.
Our classes are taught with patience, kindness and professionalism and this is what has kept us going for decades. We strive to provide a meaningful martial arts education that will provide life-long memories, character development and life skills.
