Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently not offering classes. CIKA is a martial arts school with the focus on self-improvement and the protection of self and others. For that reason, ALL of our gatherings (class times and other activities) are cancelled through the end of March. We will resume our classes as soon as it is safe to do so.

I apologize for any inconvenience but I’m sure you appreciate and share our concern. Thank you for your consideration and patience as our instructors work through the details of this unusual situation.

Classes

Kids / Family Classes (age 8 to 13)

Monday and Wednesday 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm

Sunday mornings 9:45 am to 11:00 am

Your child will grow inside and outside. They will be less vulnerable to bullies or predators as they learn Confidence, Respect and Humility.

Classes focus is on basics, forms/katas, discipline, self esteem, sparring and physical fitness. We have developed a special program to provide your child with rewarding benefits. Our program will help your child develop coordination and balance, overcoming awkwardness or imbalance during the growth years, while building confidence in many areas. Respect, self-discipline and courtesy are emphasized throughout the program. We help kids learn to focus.

Our karate program will help your child develop the ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations. Carolina Isshinryu Karate Academy is very careful to teach our students common sense before self-defense, never to be abusive or offensive, and that there is no first strike in karate. The result is a self-confident child who does not need to compromise his/her correct choices, be a bully, or show off to others.

Our kids program is structured, yet fun! We emphasize karate techniques, while incorporating good, clean fun for kids. It's also a great way for them to burn off energy. We firmly believe in the values of our karate program and its life-long benefits.
