At East West Karate, we place our emphasis on personal development to produce a student who is both mentally and physically capable of handling all that our society has to offer.
Our students are taught from the very beginning that the only person that they are competing against is themselves and that it is this self improvement that results in the perfection of their character.
Our parents often comment on how their child’s concentration has greatly improved resulting in better work and academic results.
This is because of the discipline and mental concentration involved in the Martial Arts. Through the journey to Black Belt Excellence, our students learn about the importance of leadership. To become a Black Belt is to excel to your individual BEST.
As a Martial Artist, we should always strive to improve our skills and develop ourselves in a well rounded fashion. A person with great skills is someone who has earned the respect for others and can enjoy a strong sense of accomplishment.
The above will help our students in all areas of life. Our students are encouraged to be productive and positive members of today’s society, this can be seen through our student creed which is a very important part of our program.

I will develop self discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
I will use common sense before self defense and never be offensive or abusive.
