“Martial arts are about much more than just kicking, punching and self-defense…  There is absolutely no activity that is better at instilling confidence, focus, discipline and respect in children and adults alike.  These qualities set kids up for success in life, not just self-defense situations.”


karate classes for kidsLooking for martial arts or karate classes for kids near North Seattle?



We have the most unique and effective kids martial arts program in Seattle for children between 4 and 15 years of age.  It’s a great alternative to karate or tae-kwon-do! Nobody sits on the bench in our school.

RESPECT: Our multi-cultural approach to martial art allows us to create an always evolving, always interesting experience for kids of all ages.  Kids will learn about, experience and integrate elements from the martial cultural heritage of Thailand, China, the Philippines, France, Brazil and more.

One of the biggest lessons they’ll learn is that the different arts and cultures each have something to offer and when they work together something beautiful happens.

“I can’t thank you all enough for your time and attention, not to mention patience and care with the kids you work with, and most specifically Quinn.” …”Today was one of those days that I felt you needed to know about, and share with you how you have touched MY son’s life~for a moment, an instant, a day…you touch his life even when you’re not there, and you needed to know that!!!” Susan – Kids Parent

The psychological benefits are first to manifest. Psychologists agree that the need for ‘safety’ is paramount for human beings to thrive. Pretty soon the anxiety about bullies and other stress begins to melt away and they can focus on school and just being a kid.

Using the techniques of the martial arts, from basic to advanced, your child will learn physical attributes such as coordination, balance, fitness and self-defense as well as lasting life skills such as focus, confidence, respect, persistence, teamwork, and kindness.

Martial arts will teach your child about their own strengths and challenges. Martial artists tend to be more peaceful because of their training and confidence.

Our proprietary belt system is theme based and will emphasize a different set of skills from a different martial art. They will learn styles from Thailand, France, the Philippines, China, Indonesia and more. As they learn they will come to appreciate those cultures and people. The most profound lessons are in the way the arts work well together.
