"I am so incredibly thankful for our Karate Family. First, you gave my boy confidence in himself. What a gift. Also, I never would have imagined that I would be crushing boards right alongside him. You all have given me the encouragement to focus on my health, both emotionally, and physically. I was weeping when you gave me my belt today. I EARNED it. I worked hard. I never gave up on myself. And I had a darn good time! We love you all."
"I just wanted to thank you for pushing us to take that belt test. My son was feeling like himself for the first time in a long time. It reawakened his self-confidence quite a bit...He even brought his belt to our friends house last night. He was so excited to show them and he's never been that guy! So thanks again, we love you guys.
Take a minute to see who we are and what we're about
Not all martial arts studios are created equal. Here at California Karate Academy we provide full-time black belt instruction for every class as well as leadership opportunities for our karate kids and parents.
Nothing shoddy here. Our martial arts studio has nice mats, new, clean gear, and a positive karate environment for learning.
Children enjoy learning when the activity is fun. We keep them engaged and focused, challenging them with dynamic, exciting, and positively structured karate classes.
Our kids and adults karate trial is a great way to see if our core program is a great fit for you or your children. This trial includes a uniform and 1 group class.
(Our studio's Tiny Champions program is currently suspended due to the unique challenges of wearing masks while trying to teach this age group during a pandemic)
Our Tiny Champions karate program is the precursor to our Little Dragons program. The goal is to develop our very youngest members in small sized, high instructor-to-student ratio classes which focus on listening and following instructions, self-discipline, etiquette and manners, and learning the basics of what will be expected of them as they advance through the ranks and in life.
Our Little Dragons karate classes build off of what students have learned in the Tiny Champions program. They continue to develop better focus and concentration, improve their listening skills, and advance their self-control and discipline. On top of that, they continue to expand their physical skills -- balance, coordination, focus of sight and basic self-defense.
Starting at 7 years old, our karate kid students enter the traditional Black Belt pathway where they take all of their physical and mental skills to the next level of their martial arts journey. They continue to develop physical skills like flexibility, core stability, balance, coordination, and focus of sight while also learning more complex forms and higher level self-defense. On top of that they continue to work on their mental development, increasing their mindfulness, improving their discipline and grades in school, nurturing a respectful attitude, and improving their self-image and confidence. They also unplug from their electronic devices which is integral for the proper development with this generation of children and young adults.
A family that kicks together sticks together. Our family karate classes are the coolest way for families to train with each other. In these classes parents and children enter the mats as peers, increasing their quality time together, sharing memorable moments, conquering hardships and developing healthy familial habits. These family martial arts classes give families the opportunity to set and achieve goals together, strengthening the familial unit.
Black belt club is an invite only program for our martial arts students who excel in their training and want to commit to learning more advanced techniques. In addition to learning weapons forms, kids 10 and older can train up to 2 days a week in our supplementary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Karate and Jiu-Jitsu?! Pretty rad.
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is a great supplement to Tang Soo Do. Mixing stand-up and self-defense creates a well-rounded martial artist and teaches you how to fight from your feet as well as on the ground.
If you have questions about the opportunities available to you in one of our martial arts programs, send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible and we'll never spam you or sell your information to a third party.
