Our Mission

We pride ourselves on empowering others by instilling in them the tools necessary to overcome adversity in their lives. We teach them how to use the principles of the martial arts beyond the sphere of physical motion. Through relevant, project-based leadership training our students are enriched through contributing to others, planting seeds of compassion. We teach our students to refine their character and become catalysts for peace in their personal lives, our community and, ultimately, the world.

 
In the few, short weeks since Matthew started karate, we have really seen him shine. He sits straighter, speaks more confidently, and takes your lessons very seriously. We are excited to be on this journey with him.”
