Whatever your reason is for inquiring about our classes, we’re really glad YOU ARE HERE!!
Our American Karate Academy Adult Karate Program has six primary areas of focus:
Every class at American Karate Academy starts off with a warm-up and stretching. This helps us perform our best as we kick and punch, making you limber and strong. This is going to carry into other aspects of your life as well. Your golfing, dancing, softball, and skiing is all going to improve because of your training.
We help you structure your very own fitness regimen that is efficient, effective and comfortable. Our curriculum provides for an unlimited array of energizing total body fitness workouts with a variety of class times to suit your needs, and fit into your schedule.
Our skill-based training programs are designed to provide adults with a comprehensive fitness solution. Unlike most gym workouts, which focus on either cardiovascular OR strength training, our workouts are designed to condition your whole body with one class.
Another popular benefit to our exciting and challenging workouts is their effectiveness in maintaining a healthy weight. Students at American Karate Academy experience positive changes in their body from the very start of their training. The pace of classes helps elevate the heart rate, allowing students to increase cardiovascular health while burning calories at a rapid pace. In addition, the increase in lean muscle mass that results from the total body nature of our workouts, results in students experiencing an increase in their metabolic rate. Our burn more calories 24 hours a day, 7 days per week!
Confidence and Well-Being
Confidence is a benefit that many adults want for their children, but rarely expect to receive from their own American Karate Academy training. Yet, as adult students increase in skill and understanding, they frequently admit to a growing sense of confidence and peace. This welcome and unexpected benefit results from a deepening appreciation for what we call the Black Belt Lifestyle…a lifestyle of quiet confidence, poise, and fulfillment. Students who live a Black Belt Lifestyle report reduced stress and greater success and happiness, both at work and home. This grounded feeling is a result of facing and overcoming obstacles and challenges on a regular basis.
One of the most obvious advantages of martial arts training at American Karate Academy is the development of self-defense skills, and ultimately, peace of mind. Our curriculum is comprised of real world proven techniques. They are powerful, direct and successful. We feel that the most effective self-defense techniques taught at American Karate Academy are awareness and good judgment. Students, while capable of dealing with an assault, are less likely to NEED to deal with one because of their training.
Concentration and Focus
I'm sure you know that feeling of walking into a room and wondering why you went in there. Sometimes it feels like there is too much for your brain to handle. But our classes are structured and teach you focus and how to concentrate on the task at hand. Your performance at work and at home will improve because of your martial arts training.
