The life benefits are a cornerstone of why students train even up into their 70's. This displays the lifelong benefits of karate and the commitment people have to themselves to make themselves better while training in karate.
The two specials below are for the month of July 2021!
Children and adults with special needs are not required to try out, however the student or the parent of the student will need to meet with Green Sensei in advance to give you a tour of the facility and answer any questions you might have. This will give Sensei Green an idea of where to place the student into the karate school and program.
