Our Classes

Martial arts are ancient art forms with many wellness benefits for modern-day men, women, girls and boys. The movements of martial arts increase coordination, flexibility and strength, and aids in obtaining a firm, toned and healthy body. Training also helps to relieve stress and maintain a fresh mind. Martial arts are popular, because not only are they exciting and fun, but no other activity can provide the same results as martial arts for each individual participant. Whether your goals are confidence, self-discipline, mental focus, physical fitness, self-defense or to earn a black belt, martial arts training at Tony Thomas Family Karate will get you there!

Moms and dads, not only will you attain the benefits of greater health and self-defense awareness but when you train with your children, you will experience heightened family bonding…essential in today’s society. We encourage you to look through our web site and learn more about our classes. We have a variety of classes available throughout the week with times that are flexible enough for even the busiest schedule.

We are trained and patient instructors who love to teach children, but we are very firm about limits. We enforce our expectations about behavior in class and we expect good behavior at home and in school.

Our program focuses on bully defense strategies and fitness conditioning. We also teach the children that the moves they learn in class will work, so they don’t go home or school and try them on their family members, friends, and schoolmates.

The belt system we use is the key to building self-esteem. When children earn their belts, it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.
