They don't just teach your children moves, they teach them values. They teach them to respect others as well as themselves. They learn to accept others as they are and just get along together. It's a beautiful thing to watch!

My daughter and I have been looking for something to do together and this seems to be it. We went in on Monday to check things out and by Wednesday we were in class. I have severe anxiety to the point where I rarely leave my house and I managed to get through a class with people I don't know doing something I've never done before. That is a miracle, not typical of me at all, I felt pretty comfortable and think karate may be my escape.

Fantastic Instructors that relate from the youngest to the oldest. Teach skills clearly and patiently and makes sure each individual "gets it"!
Solid mix of humor and ability and smarts make every instructor heresolid role models to have in life.
My child was not terribly flexible or graceful, now he can hold stance and do 20 solid kicks +, endurance is amazing and he feels STRONG, while understanding clearly that Karate is an Art and for Self-Defense, not to just kick someones butt.
Can't say enough about how great they are!!!!

My daughter had very low self-esteem, this has changed her so much, she has grown so much. The price seemed high to me at first but seeing her self-esteem and self confidence improve makes it so worth it. The instructors are great with the kids and they have a way with all the kids. I would say please try it. We have recommended many of her friends and they are now a part of class and love it as well. THANK YOU ALL!!!

This studio has been a wonderful experience all around. Stimulating in both physical and mental capacity with fun instructors and a support system to help you achieve your belt goals. Even on days where I just feel unmotivated to attend class, I always leave with a better attitude and more energy. Love it!

As someone on a budget, I know that the number one reason some parents may cringe at the packages is the cost. But in all honesty, it is the BEST INVESTMENT you are making and you definitely get your money's worth. The Senseis are amazing, compassionate, and not only teachers but role models to the kids. They are genuinely interested in your family's life, not just in your child's karate lessons; they are involved with the kid's teachers and with the parents to foster a balanced goal plan for the kids. Studio is always clean & someone is always accessible whether at the studio or by phone. We really see the benefits & love going to BBKS!

7 Things Kids Learn From Martial Arts

Children’s martial arts classes are an amazing way to improve the lives of kids, families, and communities. This is because of the intrinsic values imparted by martial arts to children. Those values include the following:


The kind of courage that young people learn in martial arts is one that encompasses a certain spirit of bravery. It is not simply acting without fear; it is channeling an internal energy to act in spite of fear. Courage is a transferrable skill that allows students to set goals, overcome challenges and attain success both in the dojo and in life.


One tenet of martial arts is respect. Children are taught to respect the masters who came before them, as well as their instructors, their peers and themselves. Quality martial arts instructors focus on this value consistently, encouraging students to carry it with them beyond the studio. Self-respect and respect those who are above and below them in status are essential character qualities that stick with kids throughout their lives.


Some young people have inherent leadership qualities, while others develop them with proper mentorship and growth opportunities. The martial arts are a sport that encourages and stimulates young leaders with chances to help lower-level students reach their goals. With these skills, children can be empowered to make positive decisions and act as role models within their school, family and community.


Discipline is one of the most important martial arts values because it transfers to other aspects of a child’s life. It goes beyond respect for authority and for those who dispense corrections and consequences. Rather, it focuses on self-discipline practices. In martial arts, discipline includes the ability to control one’s emotions and short-term desires while working toward more meaningful long-term goals.


When students work toward their goals and see themselves succeed, they begin to feel empowered with self-confidence. In this way, the martial arts teach children that hard work and focus can help them accomplish what they set out to do. Kids learn how to work with their own strengths and weaknesses and how to believe in their own abilities. They enjoy increased self-assurance, a quality that makes them more confident in other aspects of life.

Martial arts also teach children the correct way to fail. Their coach will warn them that they may not always win when they participate in tournaments or matches, and, on a smaller scale, they may have days when they struggle in class or find it difficult to learn a new move. Instead of getting discouraged, kids in martial arts learn to view failure as a learning experience. These kids will have the confidence to try more new things when they don’t see failure as something to fear.


The mental and physical challenges of martial arts training require attentive focus from students. This is important for correctly learning a technique and for properly channeling one’s energy and strength. Like other martial arts values, focus is needed for success beyond the dojo, as well. When kids learn this skill in their martial arts class, they can begin to apply it to homework, chores and personal goal-setting as they move into adulthood.

Physical Fitness

Like other sports, the martial arts keep students physically fit. They also learn to value the quality of being fit, as it becomes necessary for reaching their goals and maintaining the other moral values imparted within the dojo. Martial arts classes often include cardio workouts, strength training, relaxation drills and flexibility. Having a healthy body also tends to have a positive impact on other aspects of the child’s life such as increased energy levels throughout the day, the ability to concentrate and the production of the endorphins needed for good moods and healthy social interactions.

These benefits of training will stay with a child far beyond their time in the dojo. While self-defense skills are one of the more tangible outcomes of martial arts practice, positive morals contribute to lifelong character-building and the development of the soft skills needed for all-around success.
