The Basic karate program is more complex and demanding than it sounds. While there is no difference between starting your karate training through the Basic Course or the Black Belt Club, the purpose of the Basic Course is to give the new students -- especially younger ones -- a good idea about what they can expect from karate training and to make sure that they will be able to commit to learning martial arts longer than the initial six month period. The good news is that you do not need to wait six months to enroll in a Black Belt Club program. If after a month or two you discover that karate training is something that really benefits you or your child’s life, then you can easily enroll in our Black Belt Club.
• Basic karate techniques
• Basic kata (forms)
• Basic kumite (sports sparring)
• Basic self-defense
Black Belt Club
In addition to basic techniques, katas (forms) and self-defense techniques, the Black Belt Club provides training that will dramatically improve your technical knowledge and physical abilities. In addition to advanced karate and self-defense techniques against both unarmed and armed attackers, the Black Belt Club students learn how to use the traditional weapons such as nunchucks, sticks, tonfa, bo, sai, etc.) Also, Black Belt Club students, if they wish, will be trained in sports-oriented karate techniques and strategies so they can test themselves in sports competition.
Most importantly, all students enrolled in the Black Belt Club will work toward one of the main goals of karate training: earning a Black Belt rank. The Black Belt Club training program teaches commitment and dedication, the two qualities required to reach the Black Belt rank, as well as how to have success in private and/or professional life.

• Advanced kumite (sports sparring)

Black Belt Combat
The Black Belt Combat training program is an exciting addition to the Black Belt Club training program. Also, it is a perfect option for anyone who does not want to participate in sports karate competitions, or learn how to use traditional weapons. In Black Belt Combat training students learn how to use martial arts in real life situations or in MMA competition. Black Belt Combat training consists of learning full contact karate, boxing, judo, and jiu jitsu. This program is also an excellent fitness activity that is equally focused on developing martial arts skills and physical conditioning.
