These classes start by introducing the fearful child to the Martial Atrs and continue through primary skills and characters development. 

CHILD  / AGES 4 – 7
This series begins with a class for children who have no experience in martial arts. This class will
introduce proper stretching, basic blocks, punches, kicks, strikes, and self defense techniques. Children’s natural curiosity and playfulness combined with basic karate drill help develop coordination, mental focus and alertness. A great way to learn discipline, respect, self-confidence, help release energy and prepare students for future, more structured classes.

TEENAGER / Adults / AGES 8 -70

Students will learn proper stretching, basic blocks, punches, kicks, self-defense and forms (Kata) while being introduced to the history and terminology of Chang Tai Do Karate. Returning students will also learn sparring. Training will help students develop better mental focus, coordination, discipline, respect, strength, endurance and skills to defend oneself. This is a great opportunity for family and friends to get in shape, reduce stress and spend quality time together.
