Pee Wee Dragons (ages 5-6)

Our training programs begin with our Pee Wee Dragons as early as 5 years of age. In this introductory class students learn basic discipline, and karate fundamentals that allow them to transition more effectively to our youth training program. Parents can expect a high-energy class that will engage your child while getting out all that energy!

Pee Wee classes available at Hampton location Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4:30-5:00 p.m.

Children’s Class (ages 6-9)

Kids Karate is designed to help the young karate student develop the mental and physical acumen necessary for a life of Karate training. Students develop basic self defense skills, balance, physical strength, coordination and focus, all while developing fitness, confidence, respect and focus. Training is in traditional Okinawan karate. While this class is high on discipline, it is also high on fun!

Children’s classes available at Hampton location Monday-Thursday from 5:00-6:00 p.m and Saturdays from 10:00-11:00 a.m. (for ages 6-12) and Yorktown location Monday-Thursday from 5:30-6:30 p.m and Saturdays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. (for ages 6-12).

Pre-Teen Class (ages 10-14)

Our pre-teen program is designed to help your pre-teen develop into a confident and well adjusted adult. Students develop basic self defense skills, balance, physical strength, coordination and focus, all while developing fitness, confidence, respect and focus. All students who walk through our door have different physical abilities and life experiences. Some teens are already involved in other sports, while others are starting karate because they know it is a great way to become physically active. We can improve upon an individual’s existing strengths and help everyone develop new ones.

Pre Teen classes available at Hampton location Monday-Thursday from 6:00-7:00 p.m, Saturdays from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (for ages 13+) and Yorktown location Monday-Thursday from 6:30-7:30 p.m., Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (for ages 13+).

Adult Class (ages 15 & up)

Our adult training is aimed to find the deeper meaning of traditional karate. From the very first class students will be immersed in a active exploration and analysis of martial technique, practical self defense, and life extending physical training that burns as much as 900 calories per session while developing tone muscle. This program is not designed for sport, but rather is designed to help the student find a holistic sense of peace, and confidence in their daily life.

Adult classes available at Hampton location Monday-Thursday from 7:00-8:00 p.m Saturdays from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (for ages 13+) and Yorktown location Monday-Thursday from 7:30-8:30 p.m., Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (for ages 13+).
