My Child Never Cleaned His Room Until I Enrolled Him In Martial Arts Lessons...

That's a quote from a mother who was amazed and delighted by the positive change in her child after he started karate lessons. As an instructor for over 25 years, I've seen thousands of children improve their discipline, concentration, respect and overall attitude within a short period of time with lessons at our school.

How does this happen? By the structured (but fun and exciting) classes, the positive reinforcement and caring attitude of the instructors and the overall atmosphere of discipline and respect of a traditional martial arts school.

Here's what another parent had to say....
“I just wanted to say thank you for a great year of karate for my daughter, Madison. The instructors were able to get across, without saying it in so many words, that what’s imbedded in a child’s ability to look a person in the eye and firmly shake hands is dignity as well as confidence. It’s a valuable lesson, one that’s seldom taught these days and I’m so pleased you did it. Thanks so much for somehow being able to pay attention to each individual child in the class and to communicate that you are committed to Madison’s progress.” Debra Ross – Fairport

What about fitness?

Your child will be having so much fun in class they won't even notice the calories they are burning and muscle toning that is happening to their bodies. You will see increased energy and mental focus (great for school!) and they will feel more motivated and enthusiastic about all of their activities. Your child will improve their fitness and have loads of fun doing it.

“This karate experience has boosted Carly’s self confidence and self esteem. This has made her a more mature, a more poised and a more confident person. She has learned that with commitment and sacrifice she can achieve a major goal. This will serve her well in life” Christopher A. - Penfield

Can karate help my shy child?

Parents constantly tell us how their son or daughter is more confident in new situations and more outgoing in school and with their friends. As a matter of fact, one of the lessons a child learns is how to introduce themselves to other children and make new friends. This confidence spills over into schoolwork, sports and other activities.

"Liana has gained self confidence through karate. This gives her the platform to succeed in anything she sets her mind to. I see this in her school work, horseback riding and day to day interactions with people" Mrs. A. – Penfield
