If you are looking to take your martial arts skills into the ring, we have the opportunities you want. The Amerikick Martial Arts school has competition teams that will enable you to compete against others, as well as against some of the world’s best.

Our Instructors

Our instructors are all black belts in their particular specialty. They have also competed in some of the most well-known competition circles that there are in the world – and some of them have won!

Every one of our instructors regularly competes in the national circuits, such as in the North American Sport Karate Association (NASCA). One of our instructors has won the world title for fighting, another one has won the world title in the World Combat Association, and more! One of them just took first place in the Pan Am Karate Associate competition.

Our instructors know from experience how to win in the various circuits. They have repeatedly shown that they know how and they want to pass that training and knowledge to you. Their experience is what will give you an edge when you train on our competition teams. They know what it takes to be winners.

What They Look for

In every student at Amerikick, our instructors look to teach much more than just martial arts – although that is the tool used. They also look to give you several highly valuable qualities that will enable you to be a success in all you do.

As

you continue to train, we aim to impart to each student qualities that are valuable in whatever avenue of life you want to pursue. These qualities include: self-discipline, self-respect, endurance, self-control, health and fitness, and the ability to focus. When you develop these qualities and refine them and can use them in everyday life, we know we have completed our best job.

What It Takes to Compete

Before you can compete on our teams, you will need to have reached a certain level of training beforehand. The amount of time will depend on which martial art you have selected. The instructor of your classes can provide more information. Without this previous training, it could be potentially hazardous to your well-being.

In order to become highly proficient in the ring, you will need to demonstrate that you know certain moves well, and have developed your ability to react. Professionalism is needed in the ring, and having that training will encourage you to continue.

Requirements for Competition Teams

We hold competition meets often in our dojo, and other ones are held locally. Students must get permission from their instructor before they are allowed to compete. They must also have a good attendance record, demonstrate a willingness to work hard, be teachable, and have good attitudes.

If you are looking to join one of our competition teams at Amerikick Martial Arts, we invite you to talk to one of our instructors for more details. We provide many opportunities for meets, and participate regularly in the national circuits, and also in the world circuits. Our instructors can take you where you want to go in competition!

Our Kids Karate Classes Develop:

Focus

From the very first class, your child will learn the importance of eye contact, posture, and active listening skills that will benefit them not only in Karate but at home, on the playing field, and of course, at school. Both teachers and parents often notice the dramatic difference in children who study the Martial Arts. Your child will be more focused with school and homework.

Self-Control

When confronted, a child’s first option should be to get away; fighting should be the very last resort. It is a myth that the Martial Arts fosters aggressiveness in children. On the contrary, with continuous training, there are natural increases in a child’s confidence, discipline and self-control.

Self-Discipline

The Martial Arts instills discipline in students by requiring full attention in class, refraining from unruly behavior, the importance of arriving on time and being prepared. Students are also taught to follow instructions and not interrupt instructors. Kids are expected to keep uniforms and other items clean and organized.

Self-Confidence

Many parents enroll their children in Martial Arts to boosts their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.

Respect

Nothing does a better job at teaching the “old school” values of respect and courtesy. Martial Arts training teaches children to answer in a respectful manner to instructors (“Yes Sensei” or “No Sensei”), bow when entering and leaving the dojo, tag hands before sparring, stand straight before class begins and raising hands to answer or ask a question.

Goal Setting

At a very early age, Martial Art students are encouraged to set long term goals. The most obvious goal is reaching the rank of Black Belt. The Martial Arts instills indomitable spirit so children never give up on their dreams. Learning to set goals encompasses the life experiences of a Martial Arts student.

Fitness

“Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.” (CDC, 7/2013). “Two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese.” (Flegalet al., 2012). We hear about it all the time. Did you know that in many cases, the bad lifestyle habits that lead to obesity start in childhood and can get worse over time? Fortunately, the Martial Arts help families avoid falling into these statistics by teaching healthy lifestyles and fitness early on. The Martial Arts improve flexibility, endurance, balance, agility, strength and motor skills.

Self-Confidence

Many parents enroll their children in Martial Arts to boosts their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.
