KARATE USA - "To Elevate, Uplift, and to Empower our Members with the Discipline of Martial Arts."

Starting way back in 1976, we had a vision for personal empowerment through confidence for children as well as health and fitness driven adults. Curious and dedicated children and their parents who would like to get fit, feel young forever, and have fun learning something really cool have benefited greatly from our programs.

Karate USA has been voted #1 Martial Arts School and have a 5 Star Diamond Award Winning Martial Arts Program that develops strong, confident leaders!
Our Black Belt Excellence Program encompasses the very Best of Taekwondo, Karate, Kung Fu, and Kickboxing to empower our members not to overcome others but rather to master oneself. We focus on setting a clear vision of excellence through dedication, discipline, and determination while energizing and strengthening the Body for lifetime of physical & mental Health.
Kids & Adults welcome! We're all about family - fitness in the home is so important to us and we see how greatly it impacts families every day, in really good ways. Some of our adult members are parents of our younger students, teens love to blow off steam with us and gain a positive body image, and kids have an absolute blast in our fitness featured high energy classes.
What if you're a total beginner or nervous to start something really cool but new? That’s ok!
Our students come from all walks of life and start at different fitness levels. We love to work with beginners and elite athletes alike. No matter what your starting level is, you'll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.
Controlled, fast-paced, and fun movements are led by expert instructors. They meet you where your starting level is. Many of our students have no prior experience...and they just can't get enough of our classes!
Develop the heart of a champion and embrace your inner hero as you learn powerful striking, practical defense maneuvers, and develop true grit to get through the calorie roasting, heart-pounding cardio circuits.
Kids learn how to be bully-proof, how to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad, and lastly...how to defend themselves if they need to. Punching, kicking, self-respect, and respect for authority are the focus.
In addition to all of those amazing benefits above, our students ALSO experience:
  • Boosted Self-Esteem
  • Better Teamwork & Goal Setting Skills
  • Outrageous Core Strength & Hip Mobility
  • Mind Blowing Gains in Fitness & Boundless Energy
  • Fit Friends For Life

Students use our classes as a highly effective training tool for personal defense, a stellar boost to weight loss and fitness gains, or even as a stand-alone martial art.

Since its inception Karate USA's Award Winning Program has been recognized as one of Best ways to build a lifetime of Confidence, Character, Focus, and Discipline. Karate USA has also been Featured on Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien Show, Morning Show with Regis & Kelly, Headline News, CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, Guinness Book of World Record, as well as TIME Magazine.
