Karate for Kids

We have 2 kids karate programs available…

Karate Lake Elsinore

The first is for ages 4 to 7 years – our PeeWee karate class. This is an awesome program designed to improve your child’s listening skills, teach them how to follow directions, to develop confidence and awareness, to instill discipline and of course to learn how to protect themselves. We teach them how to respect each other and other people.

The Young Samurai program is designed for kids aged 8 to 14 years, which is a toned down version of our Adult Karate program. This program develops character and infuses important life skills. Our karate for kids programs have been proven time and time again to help kids to better at sport, better in school and to stay away from alcohol and drugs.

Karate for Adults

Learn the techniques and concepts of traditional Japanese Shitoryu Karate.

Lake Elsinore Karate for adults

Traditional karate when learned correctly is a devastating form of self defense. Perhaps that’s why over 50 million people globally have chosen karate as their way of life. Even with the MMA surge of recent years, karate remains the most practiced martial art in the world. Simply because it works.

You’ll learn effective self defense, kata, sparring, joint locks, throws and takedowns that will enable you to look after yourself and loved ones. Several of our adult members have dropped more than 60 pounds since commencing our program, and now enjoy a fitter and healthier lifestyle… so there’s no reason for you to feel as though you can’t do it. You don’t have to be super fit or have any experience to begin. We’ll challenge you and push you to your individual limit mentally, physically and emotionally. The result will be a more confident, empowered you.
