Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Beginner? You're More Than Welcome.

Even if you've never thrown a kick or a punch in your life... you'll fit right in and have a blast from day 1.

9 out of 10 of our members were total beginners when they first came to us.

That means you're in good company with people who understand what it means to start from scratch. You'll get support, kindness, and help through every step of your training.

Get In Amazing Shape, Fast.

You'll build strength, endurance, flexibility, power, and speed.

Plus: You'll like the way you look. Combined with healthy eating, martial arts sculpts and tones your entire body.

Become A More Confident, Better You.

These classes are challenging. But that challenge forces you to dig deep and meet it head on.

As a result, your confidence will soar as you accomplish more and more. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside and that strength will pour into every area of your life.

That's the true gift of our Adult Martial Arts classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Both of my sons have trained at East Coast Karate Institute. From day one, we have been impressed with the dedication of each instructor and assistant. It is evident how much they care about their students. The education that they give is so much more than forms, kicks... It is about being the best person you can be, living a life of integrity.

From the minute we walked into the studio we felt like family! It is so important for kids/teens to have mentors in their lives. East Coast provides the tools to help their students grow into self assured adults. . East Coast teaches self discipline , leadership, perseverance, self respect and respect for others. It promotes the importance of balancing body, mind and spirit through being mindful and being in the present moment. But most importantly the kids have fun!

Where do I begin. Simply put, East Coast Karate is an outstanding martial arts studio. Both of my children have been attending for many years and now assist. It is not simply a "Karate school." It is an institution comprised of exceptional leaders who genuinely care about the personal well being of every student. The instructor's know every student, what they are good at, what they need help with, any challenges and more importantly they know them on a personal level. They strive to not simply have the students obtain their next belt, they instead work exceptionally hard to help develop the children into fine young adults, and then into adulthood. I would need several pages to simply list the cliff notes of all of the lesson's that my children have learned, both about the martial arts and life.

I wish that I had enrolled my 6 year old son at East Coast Karate sooner. We'd enrolled him in the "obligatory" sports (soccer, baseball) in the past, but despite his early assurances otherwise, he never took to them. Karate has proven to be the complete opposite - and I believe that the program offered by East Coast Karate is a big part of that. The instructors practice an excellent balance of teaching, discipline and fun and are genuinely invested in each and every student. Simply said, this is a great martial arts school - I highly recommend.

These guys are fantastic. My 6 year old son takes lessons there. He is on the autism spectrum and requires patience for these types of things. Jolene is VERY patient with him. He enjoys the class a lot and is starting to learn how to control himself a little better. He's also learning how to defend himself, which is obviously a good thing, too. If I could give them six stars I would. I spoke to a few people about them before going and they all raved about how good Jolene is with the kids. I took it with a grain of salt but they were spot on. A+.
