Youth Martial Arts
Illinois Shotokan Karate
Children and adults alike, enjoy learning the art of karate. Classes are taught by Illinois Shotokan Karate Club's expert instructors under the direction of John DiPasquale, four-time National Champion, U.S. Karate National Coach and President of the National Karate Federation of the U.S. Beginner students will not be permitted to register into the current session after the second class has met. Registration for continuers through advanced students will be accepted after the start date, but the full class fee is required.
The Brave Way Self Defense Training
Give us two hours and we'll teach you and your family how to defend yourselves. Originally certified by the State of Illinois to teach police officers, this is one of the easiest to learn and most effective self-defense classes you can take. We're not going to teach you a bunch of stuff that might not work in a life or death situation. The techniques we teach will stop an attacker immediately. They're easy to learn and use, don't require constant practice or years of training to master, and work regardless of your age, size, strength, speed, skill or physical ability. Participants will also be given a Personal Safety Guide to help make you and your families safer in all areas of your lives. Our classes are targeted at teens and adults, but 8-11 year olds can sign up and take a class with an adult.
