How do I get my child started?

You can drop by any time and speak to one of our instructors or staff members.  We offer a two-week free-trial, which means if they wear comfortable clothing, they can go ahead and try a class (see schedule for white belt class) when they first come in.  Parents are always encouraged to watch and ask questions.  To sign up, either print (below) or pick up a registration form and hand it in to any of our staff members.  

Belt Requirements

Students in the Children's Karate Program should ask an instructor for a test card when they think they are getting ready (within 2 months) to test for their next belt.  The front of the test card will be filled out by both the student and parent together. The back of the test card has a list of techniques that the student needs for the test. The cards will be held in the workout rooms where the students can access them in order to present them to the instructor to be checked off before or after class. Cards need to be completely checked off at least two weeks prior to the belt test in order for students to be eligible to test. 

Belt tests are performed on scheduled Saturdays with a small group of students.  While families are welcome to watch any class, belt tests are a great time for family or friends to watch the student perform what they have learned.
