Teens and Adults

Benefits for Teens

The teenage years can be the most difficult, and karate gives teenagers what they need, self-defense, fitness, learning how to set and use goals and the ever important confidence.

Our karate school is a safe place, yet a challenging one.

Every person works hard, earns his or her ranks and grows into the expectations that are set for them to meet. After a short time, students often discover that the karate school, and support of other positive like-minded individuals, is an experience that is invaluable. Low grades become better grades and good students soon excel.

A healthy setting, with physical activity, can help reduce anxiety and stress and put your teen on the path to becoming a responsible happy adult.

Benefits for Adults

Often people step on to the floor and begin training because their child began karate - the benefits are self-evident. Other times there is a desire for something deeper, something that can only be found inside, through the traditional discipline of karate.

Whatever the initial reason the rewards are deep and profound, often better sleep, and coping with stress in a more positive way are immediate results.

You will also find some muscles that you did not know existed, as karate stances and hand techniques are full body movements and not isolated like a weight machine, creating total body tone.
