Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. Starting from ages 5+, they'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at Capital Karate, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
A Family that Kicks together Sticks together! There's nothing more satisfying than growing together as a family while you learn valuable self defense skills and character development. Nowhere else will you find such quality, healthy, purposeful family time!
In our interactive karate class, we teach students empowerment techniques to help deal with bullying, anxiety and self doubt. We teach these lessons through foundational martial arts techniques and skills that have been proven to boost self-esteem and confidence in children.
From setup to clean up, we have you covered! Your child and their friends will play games, be entertained, and even learn real martial arts moves. Parents say it's one of the most unique and coolest parties they've ever been to!
The best in Columbia
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
Columbia Kids agree:
Kids love classes at Capital Karate because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Capital Karate actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Capital Karate is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Capital Karate, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
From the initial point of contact with the organization they have been nothing but professional. We brought our 6 year old here to instill some discipline but still have a fun learning environment. This is a well rounded and expert group of trainers at this facility. They also offer programs for the adults which is also a bonus for when parents would like to be involved in their children’s programs. Best in Columbia!!
Capital Karate has helped my son tremendously in such a short time!! School has commented on seeing change with discipline, manners, and even with effort in gym class exercises!! I love all the teachers and feel like this is one of the best decisions we have made! They help reinforce the importance of honesty, respect, morals, & discipline which is the best part in addition to learning self defense!!!! We love Capital Karate!!!
