At the Glens Falls Karate Academy our focus is on personal development and helping you reach your goals! In our age specific classes, kids and adults are able to learn in their own unique ways (because kids do learn differently from adults!) and bennefit from the physical conditioning that martial arts provides; improved reflexes, coordination, strength and stamina as well as weight control. Karate offers many mental bennefits as well, including improved concentration, stress management, confidence and self-esteem. In short, karate helps develop the mental and physical discipline that leads to a healthy life!
Our curriculum at the Glens Falls Karate Academy is made up of traditional Okinawan (the birth place of karate) forms and drills, as well as modern self-defense techniques and tactics. We teach our students to be safe using a common sense approach to avoiding and de-escalating conflict by using awareness techniques and verbal resolution skills.
Of course, a great curriculum is meaningless if it's not presented in an encouraging learning environment! We believe that the best learning environment is one where students like to learn and train. So, we make it our goal to get to know your strengths, weaknesses and motivation, and with that give each student the attention they need to make steady progress toward continued development.
