How Family Karate is different
Dear Moms & Dads, Grandmas & Grandpas For nearly 50 years Family Karate Escondido has been serving our community by guiding children, supporting parents, and strengthening families. Our classes are fun, and we hold our kids to high standards. Karate Kids must show us that they have been more respectful and responsible at home and at school before they can earn any new belt - including White Belt. They bring every report card and school award in to our Instructors. You can read dozens of letters from grateful parents and impressed teachers here. We partner with you in developing the whole child physically, socially, and academically. Each quarter our students learn about the work and impact of a different life-model, from Albert Einstein to Nelson Mandela, from Marie Curie to Helen Keller. (Learn more here)
At each of our summer camps our campers learn about important people, events, and concepts related to that camp's theme: Valentina Tereshkova, the Moon Landing, and Black Holes during Star Wars Camp, for example. (Learn more here)
And Family Karate really is family karate: you can actually be in class with your kids! At least half our Black Belt Graduates each year are Moms and Dads of our Karate Kids - most of whom once thought they much too old to do Karate with their children! Family Karate has always supported our local schools, churches, and charities with Say No To Drugs programs, Life Lessons, Teen-Safe courses, Career Day talks, and fundraising support. Our students have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for children’s charities such as the Pediatric Brain Tumor Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
Over 25 years ago, Family Karate pioneered Martial Arts for the Physically Challenged, a program that has been adopted nationwide.
