Karate

We believe that karate combines the best aspects of fitness training and reinforcement of values. In addition to developing self-defense skills, martial arts training builds confidence and respect—both for oneself and for others. While fighting is a part of the martial arts, the primary goal of our children’s program is not to teach children how to fight but rather how to respond appropriately when confronted with negative influences such as bullying, peer pressure, and gangs.
Finally, keep in mind that these goals cannot be met overnight and that it requires continued commitment to see great results. We recognize and respect the perseverance needed by each student to achieve advanced levels


The curriculum is formulated by world champions and Olympic athletes, John and Elisa Fonseca.  They bring their knowledge of martial arts and fitness, along with years of teaching experience and coaching.  Their highly trained staff consists of experienced athletes who are great with youth and adults.
