Does your teen need
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
Raising a teenager requires persistence & patience
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
your teen will grow with every class!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
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 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.
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 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.
