“My kids have developed a sense of physical and mental confidence from their karate classes.  I have seen them gain a sense of grace and sharpness to their movements.  I also see a sense of accomplishment on their faces – they are learning to have pride in hard work they do both in Karate and in life.  I know that they will carry their training from the Stryker Karate program into their futures.” 

Increased confidence is one of the many benefits of training in the martial arts.  Click Here and send us an email for more information and let us team up to bring out your child’s confidence and self-discipline.

Don’t miss out on this fun event!  

We are hosting a Movie Night for kids, in order to provide parents with an opportunity to make some progress with their holiday shopping (or simply an opportunity for parents to have a few hours sans children)!

We will be showing Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted


When: Saturday December 8th from 4pm-7pm

Cost: $20 for three hours!  (It’s cheaper than a baby-sitter!)

Movie Night will Include:

  • Mini Karate lesson
  • Arts and Crafts

  • Movie

SMA Movie Nights have been extremely popular in the past, and we recommend getting on the list early in order to guarantee a spot.  This event is open to students and non-students.  Your child is welcome to bring a friend or sibling who doesn’t train at SMA, provided that there is enough space.

We are limiting participation to 20 kids!  Email Kailen to get on the list, or See Ms. Kristin or Ms. Sarah in the school!  Your space is reserved with your payment.

Are you ready to Gain Confidence, Lose Weight, or Want to Help Your Child Develop the Skills to Live Life Bully-Free?
