Empower Your Child

The Junior Program

The Junior Program at Alan Kessler's Karate Center provides a common-sense approach to self-defense, emphasizing conflict resolution, awareness, confidence-building, and if necessary, physical application of their karate.  Students will also improve coordination, flexibility, balance and overall physical fitness and motor skills.

The most valuable aspect of our program is the emphasis on character education.  We have developed and continue to use a program called  STAR (Stop, Think, Act, Review - Or - Success Through Accepting Responsibility).  We use this tool to work with parents and assist children in learning the importance of character values such as modesty, integrity, compassion and other virtues to help them improve at home and at school.  Each student receives individualized attention in reaching the unique goals that they set forth to achieve!
