New Students

We welcome new students at any time, and visitors are welcome to observe class. Please contact us to schedule a visit or trial class. For the first class, just wear normal work out clothes and come a few minutes early to stretch.

Karate emphasizes endeavoring and perserverance, and setting a training goal is important for kids (and adults!) Training until the first belt test is typically 2-4 months. Setting a goal of achieving a certain belt color is another option, for example orange belt typically takes 1 year. Starting with a friend or family member is a good way to enjoy the classes together and motivate one another.
