Why become a martial artist?
The benefits of karate are many and will empower and enrich your or your child’s life in so many ways.
Martial arts students become stronger, more flexible, and agile; greatly enhancing their sense of
physical well-being and performance in other sports.
Training regularly in the martial arts is a much more effective method of learning self defense
than taking a "self defense" course. Becoming confident and instinctual in applying self
defense techniques in a fast, high-pressure situation takes time and repeated practice.
Martial arts students enjoy a heightened sense of awareness, focus, self confidence,
and ability to think on their feet.
Students naturally apply the valuable lessons learned inside the dojo to daily life
outside the dojo; respect for others, attention to detail, patience, balancing confidence &
humility, striving for perfection, and perseverance.
More advanced students naturally take a leadership role in class, building confidence,
communication and leadership skills, that can be applied in every other area of their lives.
