It’s been said that “it takes a village” in order to raise a child… and we’re here to support YOUR role as a parent by reinforcing those good behaviors you want to see.

“My son has been taking karate at Stryker Martial Arts for over two years, and the experience has had a positive influence on his self-confidence, self-control and physical well-being.  His self-confidence has shown tremendous growth, as he frequently approaches challenging situations with self-assurance and composure.  … Taking karate has had a beneficial effect on his physical well-being; it’s extremely challenging, provides great exercise, builds muscles, prepares him for other activities, and is always fun!  Thanks for the continued pursuit of excellence in your kids program!  – Michele

Instructor’s Notes: Using a Strong Voice

In this video, our lead karate instructor, Ms. Kristin, provides you with some additional insight into what is happening on the mat: specifically, using a strong voice.
Not only is this skill imperative in developing leadership and articulate communication skills,  it increases the confidence of the student as well!

Please be sure to share this video, and stay tuned for additional videos in our Instructor’s Notes series!
