KIAI (Karate Including All Individuals)

KIAI (Karate Including All Individuals) is a karate class designed by Fonseca Martial Arts for individuals with special needs. Karate is a combination of both physical and mental elements, and can benefit a child with special needs in so many ways, from mobility and flexibility to memorization and cognitive development. Our goal is to teach karate to all individuals with physical challenges and learning differences. We offer individualized instruction with a curriculum designed to cater to special needs students. In KIAA, we believe true champions are made when they try their best, learn something, and have fun!
