CLASS SCHEDULE
AND CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

CELEBRATING OVER 20 YEARS IN BUSINESS !

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF SPORTS:
Research finds that in addition to improved physical health, sport plays a primarily positive role in youth development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, and fewer behavioral problems. The many facets of playing sports; the discipline of training, learning teamwork, following the leadership of coaches, as well as learning to lose, all provide lifelong skills for athletes.

EXCEPT FOR SOCCER WHICH IS LOCATED AT THE A.C. STELLE MIDDLE SCHOOL
(you do not have to be a member of the swim center or attend AC Stelle to take our classes)

JUNIOR KARATE CLASS:
(For age 5 1/2 & up)

LEARN "AMERICAN TANG SOO DO" STYLE OF KARATE

This style of martial arts is a very balanced style, consisting of equal hands and feet, equal offense and defense.
It Builds confidence & self esteem, Improves focus and concentration.

Karate is generally more of a time commitment than the sport of kickboxing because you are testing for belts, It's great for all ages.
It's also a great foundation if you want to train to be a professional kickboxer/MMA fighter.

Martial Arts also teaches you to believe in yourself, and to work hard to achieve goals, while having fun!
Children are taught the importance of good sportsmanship, and that the Martial Arts is to be used as a means for self-defense only.

The satisfaction and confidence achieved by the process of earning belts, has positive benefits that carry over to other aspects of ones life.
White Karate uniforms are required for beginners, and can be purchased at first class (visit "pricing" for more info)
