Karate Programs

Children’s classes are designed so that students learn valuable life skills while truly enjoying their karate training. Martial arts teaches children how to be more self disciplined, self confident, and show respect to themselves and others. It is exciting to see children blossom as they discover their true potential and newfound feelings of self confidence. Parents of our students regularly comment about the improvement they have seen in their child’s behavior and attitude at both home and school.

Our personalized instruction, coupled with our unique children’s training programs, instills:

  • Self control and self discipline
  • Character building and enhanced self esteem
  • Sincerity and respect for oneself and others
  • Integrity and humbleness
  • Work ethic and focus
Our adult classes combine both aerobic and anaerobic workouts and are extremely effective in lowering stress and anxiety levels. Students can expect to increase their muscle tone, stamina, and energy levels while decreasing their body fat. Classes involve a variety of training including kata (forms), self defense techniques, and sparring. This variety makes class challenging but fun and you’d be surprised what a great workout you can get in a short amount of time!

Our adult students will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Improved body appearance and muscle tone
  • Weight loss and control
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved self image and self esteem
  • Better positive attitude
  • Higher level of concentration and focus in all areas of life

In addition MAI also directs the Martial Arts program at Carlsbad Country Day Preschool. We keep our pricing affordable at the schools because we believe that every child should have the opportunity to enjoy the gift of Martial Arts.

All students enrolled in our after school classes are also allowed to attend classes on Saturdays from 12:15 – 1:00 PM for FREE. This beginner traditional karate class both at school and our dojo teaches kids how posture, focus, and self discipline can be applied to everything in life and will help them become successful. Students also learn their basic punches, blocks, stances and self defenses.

Each session of our after-school programs culminates in a belt test where the students receive their Orange/White belts upon passing their test. The test also includes a FREE uniform and a 1 day special offer at an extremely affordable transfer rate! This is a very exciting day for the students, where the whole family can enjoy the karate demonstration by our Demo Team and refreshments (cookies, water, coffee) will be served.
