At our Academy, we separate out classes by age and rank. If you are a beginner you will be in a class that only has beginners in it. All the intermediate and advanced students are in different classes. That means that everything we work on in a beginner’s class is directed just at your ability and needs.


We have four sets of beginning classes separated by age. Beginning Super Kids for ages 5 and 6. Beginning Kids for ages 7 and up. And Beginning teens for ages 12 and up. Lastly Beginning Adults.


We love what we do and everything is focused on our student needs. Beginning karate is very easy and we have graduated expectations as you advanced.
