Kenpo Kids

Ages (7 through 13 & 1/2 years)

Give your child a head start in life. Is your child armed to succeed in life? To do well in school? To stay clear of drugs? To develop physically and mentally to maximize their unique potential?

Children who attend Family Karate Center are destined to succeed in life because we teach them about goals, self-esteem, discipline, and persistence at an early age. More importantly, the traits children learn in our unique program will pay off for the rest of their lives!

Every parent wants the best for their child, but how do you prepare them for all the challenges that they face in today's world? How do you teach them the motivation, discipline, and proper attitude necessary for success? It's not an easy task because this type of education is not found in our schools. It's not found on our soccer or little league fields. It's not even found in our community organizations and that's really a shame. In fact, it's a crime because teaching children the basic traits like goal setting, motivation, and self-esteem, at a young age, can have a massive impact on what that child accomplishes in later life.

With almost 40 years of experience teaching martial arts at Family Karate Center, we have seen children who were shy and withdrawn, lacked self-confidence and focus, perhaps because they are a little slower than other children in their class. Some begin training in Karate as young children and have special challenges. They have a need of special education assistance and play sports but nothing has seemed to help them until their parents enrolled them in our karate program!

They begin training in karate because it was something they have always wanted to do. They have found it to be a lot of fun (and still do!). Their progress at first was slow because their coordination was poor but the instructors at Family Karate Center kept working with them. As they progressed in rank through the belt system their confidence began to improve. Their focus and concentration also improved and their grades got better. Their attitude, self-esteem, and motivation also increased. But it wasn't just their grades, the ability to make friends, and their athleticism that improved, "It was their entire life!".

We believe that we offer the best in martial arts training. But besides training a child to their fullest potential as karate practitioners we have made it the mission of our school to help empower the community through the personal development and character education of our children. Our training in karate has led us to accomplish many things in our lives and we feel that any child who trains in the martial arts will achieve their goals and dreams! All children who have trained in our school have been impacted in a positive way.


Over the years, we have seen thousands of children benefit from our unique programs. Overweight kids who lost a few pounds through self-discipline and exercise only to gain massive amounts of self-esteem and confidence. Smart kids, bored with school, who learned to set goals and reach higher. Wild kids who learned how to focus and channel their energy in a more positive direction. And shy children who were brought out of their shell.


All these children and the thousands of others who have experienced our program have gained a foundation in the basic tools of success that will last them a lifetime. Much as learning to ride a bike or learning to swim, once the skills of success and achievement are introduced to your children they never go away. The pay-off just keeps on going for the rest of their lives. Lives filled with proud moments of achievement backed by good health and happiness. Where do children learn such wonderful tools? 

The answer is the personal development and character education program found only at the Family Karate Center. As child development specialists, we feel that one of our strongest responsibilities is to empower our children with the confidence, persistence, and self-discipline to succeed in school, in sports, and in life.

At Family Karate Center our unique curriculum of self-development, fitness, and fun will teach your child all the key traits necessary to succeed in life. While the more traditional aspects of martial arts such as self-defense are certainly important in today's world, perhaps the most important aspect of our curriculum is not so much the physical part, but the mental one.

The Family Karate Center will arm your child for the future with all the key traits of success and happiness including self-esteem and confidence to raise a hand in school and ask questions so they learn while others hold back for fear of embarrassment. Family Karate Center arms your child with a positive attitude and the persistence to succeed. It gets them saying "I Can" rather than "I Can't" when dealing with a new problem or challenge. We excite children about the pursuit of knowledge in school and teach them the master skill of all success, setting goals. Family Karate Center arms your child with focus, concentration & self-discipline that helps to improve grades. Family Karate Center will help your child develop physically. Our programs increase speed, stamina, and strength in children. They will also develop balance, coordination, and timing, all of which helps to increase performance in many other physical activities. To top it all off we teach leadership skills such as motivation and focus, key ingredients for success in anything including getting good grades in school and beyond.

Perhaps the scariest problem for many parents today... is the thought that their child might get involved with drugs. The number of "good kids" taking drugs at a younger and younger age is staggering. At Family Karate Center our programs are designed to promote self confidence and self esteem to give your child the courage to say NO to unhealthy choices despite peer pressure. Recent studies have shown that programs which focus on personal achievement, such as Martial Arts, are vastly more effective in fighting this problem than any other activity.Teach your child to spot and avoid danger

While we wish it were not even a factor... the fact remains that we live in a world full of undesirable people. Family Karate Center will teach your child how to spot and avoid danger. What to do in an emergency, and if necessary, how to protect themselves from danger. This invaluable skill will not only increase confidence in themselves but, may even save their lives. Best of all your children will have fun while they learn!

Family Karate Center is the only place in the world that offers the keys to long term success in such a comprehensive, fun and exciting environment! Our carefully structured environment will help your child develop physically, mentally and socially. Because your children will be surrounded by others with similar goals and aspirations, they will develop positive friendships and healthy peer groups.

Personal attention and teaching excellence makes the most of each child's experience. It's this special attention to each individual's unique personality and needs that truly sets Family Karate Center instructors above the rest. Our school is built on a philosophy of personal attention and teaching excellence. With that in mind, it's no surprise to learn that our school has been nationally recognized by Martial Arts Business Magazine, for its dedication and teaching skills!
