We start training children at 5 years of age. Children under the age of 5 do not have the retention skills necessary for productive learning. We have students training at 56. If you are determined you can train at any age.
Karate is a discipline. It teaches children to follow directions, pay attention and practice. This discipline naturally helps students do better in all activities.
It's unusual for anyone to be in ideal shape for karate when they start. Everyone comes to karate with unique strengths and weaknesses, even those who have never worked out before! You will be taught at a pace that works for you. In time you will improve your physical conditioning and be able to keep pace with everyone in class.
The wisest warrior never goes to battle. We teach discipline and respect. With proper training you will learn how to defend yourself and recognize your surroundings. As you progress, you will learn to prevent a bully or attacker from entering your personal space with confidence.
