Under the instruction of our professional, children will develop coordination, improve balance, and achieve total fitness and self-defense while increasing their self-confidence.
Why Choose Karate?
We know your child is special. Each parent that walks through the doors of a karate studio is looking for something different for their child-something special. Unlike other sports you could choose for your child-basketball, soccer or baseball, to name a few — karate specializes in developing the whole child through a combination of physical and mental discipline.
Several studies have shown that the whole child concept increases a child’s ability to focus; to translate success in the studio to success in the classroom and to aid in the redirection of challenging behavior.
The practice of karate, in many forms, dates back thousands of years. Unlike what is sometimes portrayed in movies or television shows, the true practice of karate does not encourage violence. In fact, the origins and bedrock values of martial arts are: respect, courtesy, honesty, perseverance and integrity.
Karate classes build a strong base of basic skills through the use of forms and strengthening exercises. This exciting, yet disciplined approach to development actually increases the child’s ability to focus. This focus improves the child’s retention and accelerates their physical achievement — the child can actually see their improvement. Building on that initial success creates a lasting sense of accomplishment and increased self-confidence and allows the instructors to teach karate values.
The workouts themselves are designed to be challenging. We will encourage your child to push their mental and physical limits. Your child will see that his body and his mind will go further than he expected. He will later equate that his life as the ability to overcome life’s obstacles and view challenges as opportunities.
These combined physical and character foundations honed through the karate help children excel in their academic school studies, sports and social endeavors; It ensures that they have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure

“Our two boys have been in karate classes at Tajik Karate Academy for almost two years. They enjoy going to their practice classes. They say they learn something new every day. Sensei Alex is very nice and accommodating. We’ve looked for other karate classes in the town which are way too expensive compare to Tajik Karate Academy. Never had any issues about the schedule and even make up classes. We would say this is the best academy in town.” Maninder B.
