In the introductory session, which consists of 2 lessons, we will show you many exercises to develop your flexibility and self-defense skills.

ABK Juniors Program (ages 6-13): Every parent wants their child to succeed. The necessary tools for success are discipline, confidence, respect and self esteem. America's Best Karate brings out these qualities in the children that we teach. The results are amazing: better grades, improved physical agility, mental alertness, self motivation and leadership. When children feel good about themselves, peer pressure is greatly reduced. When the body is respected, the desire for drugs and alcohol is eliminated. When children have discipline, they become focused in their daily tasks. The qualities of leadership emerge and the difference is apparent to themselves and others.
What We Teach: The core of our program is Tae Kwon Do, (pronounced Tie Kwan Doe) which is one of the oldest and most effective means of self-defense. It is much more than a method of unarmed combat. Practiced as an exercise system it works wonders for your physical and mental well-being, your coordination sharpens, reflexes quicken, breathing becomes controlled, muscle tone improves, and your overall strength and endurance increases dramatically.
