Adults enjoy studying the martial arts because it is both interesting and motivating. Men and women take pleasure in the opportunity of getting and staying in shape, becoming stronger, more flexible and much more confident in their ability to defend themselves if the need should ever arise.
The harder and more intensely you train, the more relaxed and confident you will become! You will benefit greatly from the workouts and forge quality friendships that can only be achieved through training and sweating together with like minded people. Teenage students find it valuable to have adult role models to train with while also having the support of their fellow teenagers all in the same class.
Here is what our program can do for you:
Improve Physical Fitness: Martial arts is like an exercise program with a bonus! You learn to defend yourself while you get in shape.
Our classes relieve stress: Martial arts classes have a well-known history of emphasizing mind-body training that goes far beyond the local health club routine.
Karate practice gives you confidence: Nothing can take the place of knowing that you can defend yourself if you have to.
Have fun and make friends: Learning happens much faster and easier in an enjoyable, positive environment.
“My child loves coming to her class at N.S.K.A. I enjoy watching her stretching, balancing, focusing and laughing! At home she says “I will do my very best Mom”. The very competent and entertaining instructors reinforce all the lessons I teach at home: Dressing yourself, pick up your toys, listen to your parents, eat right etc! Michelle seems to do what she needs to because she hears it from her cool karate teachers.”
"You know how kids are…when they’re little you “try” everything – ballet, piano, soccer, tennis, swimming, art, gymnastics, karate. After a while you get a sense of where your child belongs. I discovered this shortly after my daughter (age 4 at the time) took off her tutu in ballet class and just walked out the door!"
"When she was six, we decided to “try” karate. Now it’s almost 3 years later and our daughter hasn’t said one negative thing about karate! Not one! Mr. Spoon and Mr. Hart are masterful at engaging the kids and balancing fun with learning. It is a true mind/body experience."
"My daughter has become more respectful and focused. There is no doubt in my mind that she will continue with the program and earn her black belt and beyond. I recommend this program 100%. Having a child learn karate with Mr. Spoon and Mr. Hart is a real gift, lessons they can treasure throughout their lives."

“Michael has made many positive changes since beginning karate classes. We’ve noticed an improvement in his ability to focus, obeying mom and dad and his love for karate. He enjoys practicing karate at home and teaches his younger brother his latest moves.”
We are very happy with the instructors as they are truly wonderful with the children and show patience, discipline and understanding.
