For Children (Ages 2 and Up!)
Our #1 goal for children here at this school is Character Development. Our program is second to none in Children's Development. Through confidence and incredible Student / Instructor relationships, children here do more than just listening to what they are told, they develop a sincere desire to excel in and out of the School. Over the course of the Trial Program, parents get the chance to watch Master Berry's teaching style and get a general feel for what this school is all about. The children get a feel of Martial Arts, Tae Kwon Do, and "karate"; and whether they enjoy the classes. By the end of the first week and the graduation of the introductory course, students and parents will have an idea of how our program works. We strongly believe in our system, and the Trial Program is how we show you we are the best! Call anytime to get details about the next trial program and to register yourself or your child.

Our goal for Adult students is 3 parts. Fitness, Self Defense, and Self Improvement are the 3 main components of Adult training.
- Fitness: Our fitness program EXCEEDS that of average Martial Arts schools, karate schools and gyms. It is a complete workout with an added bonus of proper technique. Our classes are not like Cardio Kickboxing; all techniques taught here are effective and properly executed. Many styles of kickboxing type classes are not monitored for technique and down the road the student will risk injury. Do you have to be in shape already? Of course not! Our program is for anyone. Through quality instruction, all students are making their own improvements. Whether you can kick to the ceiling or to an ankle is irrelevant, your progress is what counts. The Trial Program is a great way to get a feel of what type of shape you’ll get in!
- Self-Defense: Self-defense at our school is taught in a friendly environment. It is based off of the other techniques we do in classes, which allows repetition without getting bored. It is shown as practical self-defense based in modern day situations. The self-defense techniques taught through our program are a part of teaching and learning about our overall personal security measures.
- Self-Improvement: Through confidence and discipline, you will develop skills that can have a direct impact on your daily life. Family life, careers, and personal relationships will gain strength through what you are learning and “training” on in our School. Our school is known all over for having the most disciplined of students as well as TOP NOTCH Martial Artists. Take the Trial Program and see why people are improving themselves and having fun doing it!
