Our Programs

We have two basic programs:
• Karate for Ages 6 to Adult
• Private Lessons

In all programs self-control is emphasized. Students are taught to use their skills for self-defense only.

Karate Ages 6 to Adult

We are proud to say that at Promar Karate, we are a full service school. We teach striking, self defense, kata light contact sparring, martial arts weaponry, and judo/jujutsu throws, locks and grappling. We do tournaments but don’t make our students go into tournaments. Our Team, however, wins a lot. We don’t throw all of this at you at once. We teach in a progressive and systematic manner.
Students learn at their own pace. In addition to the martial arts skills, you will get fit, build character, and develop an “I can do it” attitude.
Private Lessons
This program teaches the Karate program one on one or in family groupings. You will learn up to four times faster in the private lesson program. You can also use the private lesson program to specialize in different areas of the martial arts. We have flexible scheduling for people on the go and for shift workers.

The Keys to Martial Arts Success
I’ve heard all sorts of stories about how to succeed in the martial arts. “You have to start when you’re three!” and “You have to train nine hours a day for ten years” or “You have to move to Japan and eat rice three times a day.”

The truth is, age doesn’t matter, gender doesn’t matter, how athletic you are when you start doesn’t matter, and where you grew up does not matter.

Since 1979, my best students have followed this plan:

1) They got to class twice a week, every week during the karate season.
2) They practiced on their own on a regular basis
3) They listened to their instructors.

Simple really – take the three step formula and apply it to any job, art, sport, or school course, and you will be successful. (Thank You)
