The great thing about our program is that the earlier you get started, the better your long-term results!

We have children in our programs that started as early as 3- or 4- years old, but since children develop at different rates, the best (and really, ONLY) way to see if your child is ready for our program is to take advantage of one of our WEB SPECIALS and try it for yourself!

No. In fact, quite the opposite!

Children are exposed to HUGE amounts of simulated and real violence on video games, television, movies, the internet and other media outlets.

But in our unique program, we teach students real, practical, effective violent conflict resolution techniques and tactics that can defuse the situation before it escalates to violence. We also teach escape techniques and tactics that even “smaller” people can use to move to safety if approached by a potentially dangerous situation.

Should your child be confronted with an aggressive situation that can’t be resolved peacefully or escaped from, he or she will also then possess the basic martial arts skills to defend themselves.

There are so many!

Martial arts students benefit from increased physical fitness and mental focus. 

The focus on self-discipline, respect, self-confidence, and perseverance in the face of setbacks builds character in students young and old.  Our students also join a community of people who share an interest in martial arts, improving their own way of life, and making a positive contribution in the community.

We know how busy your life is as a parent, so our program is designed so that students can make exciting progress by attending classes an average of twice a week.

Some students will want to attend more classes, and that’s great- we have options for that!

Really, the only way to know if our program is a good fit for you and your family is to try it for yourself!

We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached, and see for yourself how the program will benefit you or your child. 

One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual and will progress at their own rate.

Each student’s progress isn’t measured against other students, but rather against their own previous performance!

So, even students that aren’t as physically fit as the star quarterback of the football team can have a wonderful experience in our program, and become stronger, fitter, and more flexible.

"AN INCREDIBLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE..."
“An incredible learning experience awaits children and adults at Blue Life Karate. My sons have been attending for a combined 13 years. As a result, they’ve gained tremendous discipline and the techniques of self-defense.The program provides a solid foundation for children that face bullying challenges, which is so pervasive today. I’ve personally witnessed children with behavioral problems reverse course and advance to levels their parents thought were unattainable.”

Blue Life Karate & Kickboxing

People believe that martial arts training is just another extra curricular activity, that is a misconception. There is not any program that is going to give you the benefits that you receive from martial arts training. Many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
