Classes Are Limited, Students Are Admitted On A First Come Basis
Get ready for FUN!
Our Karate Summer Camp offers child care organizations a unique field-trip opportunity for their children to experience FEAR KNOT's character development programs. Along with the developmental drills, it wouldn't be a Karate Summer Camp without learning a few self defense skills so we'll show your children a few simple, beginner level techniques. There will also be the talk about using those skills only to defend against someone who's trying to hurt them physically.
If you’re like most parents, you want nothing more than to see your children grow into strong, well-mannered individuals - who respect others. We agree, which is why we teach two crucial components that every child needs on their path to success: fitness and character.
After School Martial Arts
Our A+ After School Martial Arts Program provides an exciting and fun alternative to standard after school options. Based on our traditional and age-specific youth character development programs that teach discipline, focus, respect and making good choices.
Little Ninjas is a concept-based program that focuses on the skills that are developing for 3 - 6 year olds. We use very basic martial arts skills to teach concepts like focus, discipline and control. In our schools we teach our students to learn these skills because it's good for them, not through fear of being punished.
Our Karate Kidz program is structured to help your child transition from a purely developmental program like Little Ninjas to our traditional youth self defense program. Like the younger children’s programs, Karate Kidz uses eight age-specific developmental concepts but also includes the beginner level youth self defense program materials.
One of the great benefits of martial arts training is the improvement of our students’ ability to focus and pay attention. This age-adjusted curriculum teaches 10 - 12 year olds traditional self defense skills along with developing their concentration, discipline, and respect for others.
Our adult self defense program is designed to meet the needs of our teen and adult students. It doesn’t matter whether you’re here to learn self defense, get in better shape, lose weight, do something different, or to make new friends. This program is both enjoyable and challenging!
