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.

The classes were so inspiring I had to try it myself and am so glad I did. It’s been a great experience to take the family class together, and it’s an amazing workout.

Since joining North Shore Karate Academy we have noticed a huge improvement in our children’s level of focus at school, sports and at home.
