Welcome to
East Coast Karate Institute

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Edward Stumm.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at East Coast Karate Institute is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

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+.
