This class teaches throws, releases, and takedowns. Taught by a certified 8th Dan Champion Jiu Jitsu instructor.
|Tang Soo Do
We offer many classes in Tang Soo Do for ages 5 and up. There are many benefits for all students who take karate.
Some of them are:
Self Confidence: All students at Mountain Karate Academy are treated in a friendly and respectful manner. There is
no teasing or ridiculing. Everyone is welcome. Our students are taught to teach what they have learned and to help
one another. Many new friendships have formed in our classes.
Focus: Students at Mountain Karate are expected to be respectful and pay attention to the instructor when he or she
speaks. They are taught how to focus on the task at hand.
Fitness: Students will train hard and achieve exceptional physical fitness. Karate is a year round sport, and the
physical conditioning will become a way of life for the student, not just an "activity" they participate in for a few
months a year.
Leadership: As the student progresses through the belts, he or she will be given more responsibility to lead and
teach. Upper belts assist new students by helping them feel welcome and learn the techniques. The benefits of this
are twofold: it makes and new student feel welcome, and it helps the upper belt to feel self confident.
In addition, the student will learn Self defense, which will protect him or her from danger, Perseverance, Integrity,
Respect, Discipline, Concentration, Values, and a Positive attitude. Plus, you will see an improvement in grades in
school age students!
|ADULT KARATE (15 and up)
Our adult students are taught a variety of techniques from Tae Kwon Do Chung Do Kwan, Tang Soo Do, Judo, Hapkido, weapons, and Olympic style
sparring. The class is open to all ages over 15, and all skill levels. Our adults have a great time learning the martial arts and conditioning their minds
and bodies. This class is taught by
Master John Fagliarone and is a one and a half hour class
|KINDER KARATE (3-5 year olds) Little Dragons
Mountain Karate Academy has developed special programs for young children and we would
like to invite you to attend a free introductory class.
There are distinct advantages for your child when he or she learns the martial arts. We will
teach your child motor skill coordination, with precise movements that will increase his or her
balance and hand-eye coordination. In addition to learning kicks, blocks, and punches, we also
play games that will help them develop in many ways. Growing children need proper exercise
for their muscles and bones to develop strength and agility. We do stretching, bending, and
other muscle building movements. The Sa bu Nim (instructor) will lead them step by step.
Just a few skills we will teach your child are:
1. Focus 5. Balance
2. Teamwork 6. Memory
3. Coordination 7. Discipline
4. Fitness 8. Control
(7-14 years old, white and orange belts only)
This class is designed for children who are just beginning in belt advancement classes. This is a great class for kids who are
new to the school and want a class where they can learn the basics along with other beginners.
