Belt Exams, for the Karate Kids (Little Dragons and Adults test during class), are done 7-8 times per year. The exams are held at our West Haven Studio. Students will be advised by an instructor when they are ready to test for their next belt. Students need to the know the set-techniques for their current belt, and all the techniques learned on their previous belts, demonstrate break falls, rolls, kicks, and punches.
We have a variety of workshops throughout the year: Set-Techniques, Kali (Escrima) Sticks, Bo-Staff, Nunchuck, Grappling, Sparring, Sweeping, Etc.
We offer an Annual In-House Tournament every May, inviting all of our students (studio and after-school programs). Our events are Sparring, Sweeping and Jousting. Every student earns a trophy! It is our philosophy that any student who participates to the best of his or her ability and shows good sportsmanship is a winner.
We also offer a Karate Sports Camp every summer, for a few weeks, at the Margaret Egan Center from 9:00am – 12:00pm, Monday-Friday. The instructor incorporates karate, kickball, hockey, basketball, dodgeball, etc. into a fun-filled, action-packed morning to keep your child active and allow them to have fun in a safe environment.
