If you want your child's confidence level to bloom, send him/her here

My two sons have thrived at American Karate and Self Defense. They have more self-control, self-respect, and self-confidence.

great school

My son is 8 and started at American Karate and Self Defense a few months ago. This most impressive thing I've noticed is how the instructors seemlessly go from teaching advanced students, then beginners. Also, they are able to teach the kids that their achievements will be rewarded, but rewards aren't given just for showing up. The kids have to earn their stripes, yet are handled kindly at the same time. Great place ... view more
