This karate school has it all: great classes for the entire family or just for yourself, a fun work hard yet laid back approach, and the most caring and amazing instructors around! Plus, the most fun kick butt kickboxing classes around!

Love this place! All instructors are very passionate and friendly, approachable and respectful to students. Moving up is based on skill and kids work hard to earn their next belt stripe and belt. My son felt welcome from day one because the atmosphere here is so family like. I have seen the kids help each other as well. Recommended to all! You can learn great martial art skills in a fun and friendly environment.

This place is amazing! It is the first time my son has participated in a structured activity without any fear or hesitation. The instructors make everyone feel welcome and a part of the group. They are great with kids and give them a huge self esteem boost! We love Karate Edge.

My 7 year old twin grandkids just earned their yellow belts on Saturday. They absolutely love going here. They learn in such a positive way. Karate Edge is the best! From the Sensei to all of the instructors I give you kudos! You are all awesome!

My best friend loves this school and she invited me to a class and I loved it! The first class I was doing the same thing as everyone else and I was paired with a black belt who was able to teach me the exact way I needed so I could at least keep up!
It was an awesome experience and as soon as my two kiddos are old enough they'll be taking a couple classes a week here =) #bestkarateschool

My daughter begged us for a karate birthday party and I'm so glad we chose Karate Edge! From our initial planning meeting, to the set-up of the room (Jen did a beautiful job!!), to all of the drills, skills & games during the party...we couldn't have asked for more! All of the instructors were so, so great! They kept the kids moving and laughing with the games, while still managing to teach some karate skills and principles at the same time. We will definitely be looking into classes, and I won't be at all surprised if my daughter asks for a karate party again next year. Thank you, Karate Edge!

Introducing: Elf Skillz!

Hey Karate Edge Parents & Family,

We told you we have a few surprises in store for you! Here is one that the elves behind the scenes have been working on diligently with our Skillz system!

Many parents enlist Elf on the Shelf to remind our kids that he/she’s keeping tabs on them and letting Santa know if they should be on the ‘naughty’ or ‘nice’ list…

However, this concept doesn’t always align with SKILLZ theories for child development and positive reinforcement. We hope that our version will be one that be both helpful, fun and developmentally stimulating for your children.

With that said, we’ve put together a cool concept to help utilize Elf on the Shelf as another support tool just like our SKILLZ system!

Here’s how it works:

  1. There are 8 Elf SKILLZ.
  2. Each night, have the Elf leave a challenge or message alternating through one skill, in order.
  3. Rotate through each one 3 times equals 24 days of Elf SKILLZ starting December 1st.
  4. For even more fun and better results, the child can earn 5 points each day they complete the challenge and then the Elf will leave a small gift once they receive 20 points. Gifts can include candy, money, art supplies, etc.

Here are the SKILLZ:

  1. Manners
  2. Kindness
  3. Bravery
  4. Creativity
  5. Self-Control
  6. Loving
  7. Healthiness
  8. Cooperation

We hope the ELF SKILLZ inspires you!

Also, be sure to use the #elfskillz if you make posts on your social media pages to help build a worldwide trend for this creative concept! Feel free to share it with your friends!

Best Regards, Tony & Alicia Bennest, Karate Edge (www.thekarateedge.com)
