A Few Words
I’m Kimberly Harrison, Owner, Head Instructor, Kyoshi, Hachidan (8th degree Black Belt) here at American Sport Karate Centers.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
Does Your Child Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
We have been going to American Sport Karate Center for over 4 years and would recommend it to anyone. They are so patient with the kids and teach great skills like stranger danger, self defense and best of all discipline. Definitely recommend!!
My daughter has been going to ASKC for over 6 years. I really didn't think that karate was going to be her "thing" when she first began, but she loves it and has grown in so many ways thanks to Mr. Clifton, Miss Kim, and all the instructors and students. She earned her 1st degree black belt last fall and we really feel that ASKC is part of our family.
When we started at ASKC my son was scared. We had tried another karate school where he was thrown into a class with older kids and minimal instruction. He was embarrassed that he didn’t know the moves. ASKC is different. First of all, they started with a get to know you session where they taught him some basic moves and let him know what to expect in class (he’s a kid that needs lots of information). After talking with him, they decided to let him go to classes with younger kids to build his confidence. When he was ready, they moved him to the youth class. Every student at ASKC is treated as an individual and they are experts at teaching and motivating. There is more to learn than karate. My son has learned that you must make mistakes to learn. Perseverance is one of the key concepts they teach. The staff is excellent at developing leadership skills in students. The older students take interest in the younger students and mentor them. Every teen student you see there is respectful, and you will see them encouraging the younger students. The karate instruction is excellent (you can easily find info on their impressive credentials) and a great option for a kid that doesn’t want to play team sports. The staff is dedicated and caring. The instructor to student ratio in class is exceptional- kids get more instruction in class when they need it. Cost is reasonable. We drive 25 minutes to get there. We could go closer to home, but ASKC is worth it!
My daughter has been going here since she was 3 and she’s now 7 and we have had nothing but positive experiences. She started out very shy and she is shaping into a very confident strong young lady. She also attends the After School and Summer Camps and absolutely loves it!
A truly special place that dedicates themselves to teaching martial arts to people of all ages and providing a family atmosphere that promotes health, discipline, curiosity, and fun! My child is thrilled each week on Karate days and I am enjoying watching her learn!
ASKC is a fantastic place! My kids have been going here for almost 15 years. The instructors meet the children where they are developmentally and don't have a one-size-fits-all program like some belt-mills do. My youngest has practically grown up at this dojo, starting when she was almost three. She's utilized the Afterschool program and the Summer program. There is always an emphasis on self-defense and fitness. Sparring, Weapons, and Grappling are all available as well as regular classes focusing on a cross-section of karate skills. If you or your children are looking for solid karate and life skills, this is the place.
