Northampton Karate Classes for Teens / Youth Ages 13 to 17

Northampton Karate has been working with youth for over 30 years and has developed the most comprehensive youth self defense and martial arts program in Northampton and the Pioneer Valley. Our classes stress discipline, focus, perfection of technique, Okinawan traditions with courtesy and respect, earned rank promotions, and a little bit of fun. Every teen is capable of learning karate. Our curriculum encourages patience and progress. There are both boys and girls in all youth classes and men and women instructors, serving as role models while providing a unique balance and approach.

There will be other beginners in each of the youth classes. Teens will be made to feel welcome from the very first class. We understand that all practitioners start off as beginners, and we encourage respect and patience with students of all skill levels and abilities. We look forward to training with your child in the Dojo.

The minimum age to participate in the youth program is 12. If you're thinking about joining, parents and children are welcome to observe all or part of a youth martial arts class. Please email in advance if interested in visiting and observing. We ask that you show up 15 minutes prior to your child's first class to complete the one-page registration form, sign the waiver, be fitted for a Gi (uniform), make first month's payment, and to receive a quick orientation. The Dojo is equipped with male and female changing rooms and bathrooms.

Northampton Karate does not have an "initiation fee" and membership is paid on a month by month basis. A discount applies if membership is paid quarterly or annually and we accept cash or checks. The fee for youth classes is $40 per month, which allows your child to particpate in as many youth classes as are offered.

Please email or call the Dojo (413-584-6139) if you have any questions or would like more information.
