See What Our Parents Are Saying
Imagine all the ways martial arts could prepare your child for life. From Leadership to Listening skills we set your child up for success!
I’ve been training under Sensei Klinger for many years and every experience has been top notch.
You will learn life skills that everyone needs, especially children. They will carry what they are taught at the dojo into their daily lives. Highly recommend.
East West Karate is a wonderful environment for students of all ages. Classes are taught with a delicate balance of hard work and fun. Sensei and the family of blackbelts have provided my sons an excellent set of skills including self-discipline, focus and confidence, not to mention self-defense.
I've been training at East West Karate with Sensei Klinger for almost 27 years. The discipline, respect, work ethic and confidence that I've gained over those years have undoubtedly helped shape the strong, professional, successful woman that I am today. The instructors genuinely care about every student, development and growth (both physically and mentally) are of the utmost importance, and hard work is rewarded. There is no doubt in my mind that I would highly recommend this dojo to students of all ages!
HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT Martial Arts
Although any sport or activity has some risk involved, our team of certified instructors follow safety protocols to ensure a safe and supportive environment for our students. In fact, unlike sports which has one adult supervising an entire team, we have multiple instructors monitoring a room at all times making sure everything runs smoothly. We understand that each student has their own unique limits and we encourage rest and feedback during exercise.
Martial Arts is often depicted as a violent activity but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The mindset behind martial arts involves harmony, peace, tranquility, and connection to the body. The majority of training focuses around movement and energy. We teach kids how to talk through conflicts and seek the guidance of an adult with the authority to help. However, if an unavoidable violent situation arises in your child’s life, they now have the tools to fend off the attack and safely escape the situation.
For your free trial, we recommend you come in shorts and a T-shirt to work out and have fun. Once you signup, we offer a free uniform for each new student!
In addition to training children in conflict resolution and self defense, martial arts also instills essential life skills like discipline, honor, confidence, and respect. The process of goal setting and working towards moving forward is extremely rewarding and causes a major shift in maturity.
