The movements in Karate do and Aikido develop coordination and timing while increasing strength and flexibility.  Our philosophy is to teach student martial art values, as well as respect for themselves and others, through Karate training, goal setting, and goal achievement.  Children gain self-confidence from learning these skills.

Children's Karatedo Aikido Kobudo is a Japanese martial and cultural arts program dedicated to helping individuals to develop more self-discipline, self-confidence and self-esteem.  Students learn about Japanese culture, physical fitness, self-defense and discipline through training in an integrated combination of martial arts: Karate, Aikido and Kobudo.  By consistently training, students learn to be adaptable and confident in their ability to handle stressful situations.  Our expectation is that the student will grow to be an individual who demonstrates the five core values of our school:  Character, Sincerity, Effort, Etiquette and Self Control
