Classes

Mixed Belts: Most of our classes mix ranks from white to black belt. Senior students (many with decades of experience) work closely with less experienced students to challenge them and help them advance. Every rank has a duty to help those below them. Classes may focus on fundamentals, conditioning, forms, sparring, or self defense. Unless otherwise noted, families are welcome to train together in these classes.

Juniors: We suggest these classes for students Kindergarten and up, but we will evaluate any child to see if they are ready. The classes largely work on the same curriculum as the adults, but with a skilled teacher experienced in getting the best out of younger martial artists. The classes focus on strong fundamentals and emphasize building character by stressing discipline, self restraint, patience, and responsibility. Topics such as self defense awareness and how to respond to bullying are also included. 

 
 

Sparring: Friday night is fight night! Kim Studio has a long tradition of producing tournament champions in both forms and fighting. Come out on Friday to challenge yourself with a serious physical workout and get in the ring to test your sparring skills!

Weapons: Led by Master Nicodemus, this class supplements our core Karate training with techniques for coping with armed self defense and is built on the principles of Filipino Martial Arts. Weapons class is open to all students, but Juniors by appointment. Some restrictions apply, Read More...
