We Are an Awesome Team of Karate Lovers

Liza starting at the age of 5, and Diandra starting at the age of 8. They took over the karate studio from Professor Lama. Because of Professor Lama and taking martial arts, they instilled in us very strong values of community, responsibility, discipline, and self-respect. These are the values we teach and pass on to the children we teach today.

We not only focus on martial arts/karate. We want to instill values in your children that will eventually carry on into adulthood. Respect for yourself and others, honesty, determination, self confidence, and excelling in not only karate but school as well. School ABSOLUTELY comes first, we check report cards and grades every time, for every student, no exceptions. It’s MANDATORY.”

The Main Reasons to Practice Karate:

Enhance Focus

Kids are constantly learning new moves at their own pace and are taught to be aware of their surroundings.

Build Confidence

Martial arts builds a child’s confidence, they begin to project an aura of strength and ensure that they are not perceived by bullies as easy targets.


Karate is just fun for kids.

Improve Discipline

Karate provides children with a consistent structure of discipline, which helps them learn acceptable behavior and respecting others.

Develop Leadership

We teach students to be leaders, not followers. Advanced students understand the importance of being a role model to newer students.

Good Health

Karate can burn up to 700 calories in an hour class. We get your kids up and moving. Burning their extra energy, so they are ready to focus when they get home.
