Without a philosophy of personal development, Martial Arts would be little more than street fighting.  At the A.O.K., we teach and emphasize a series of basic life skills that challenge our students throughout not only their Martial Arts training, but also their every day lives.  Our Tiny Tigers  (Age 6 and under class) and Youth class (6-15) students are taught to be respectful and polite toward parents, siblings, teachers, and elders.  They are also taught the importance of doing their best in school.  In addition, stranger awareness is taught in all of our Children's Karate classes.

Our Teenage and Adult students are taught to set challenging, yet achievable goals and that hard work does have its rewards.  Through our Martial Arts Program, our students become more confident and develop an attitude of self-reliance. This increase in confidence enables them to better cope with issues of peer pressure and helps them make correct choices. 

"The Ultimate goal of the Art of Karate is not victory or defeat, but rather in the perfection of the character of its participants."

Gichin Funikoshi, Father of Modern Karate
