Opened in Gaston county in January 1994. We are an official Black belt training facility. Our goal is for everyone to become a black belt leader. All of our Instructors are Black belt or above and are required to re-certify every year. Our academy can take a student from white belt to third degree black belt Instructor.

We are committed to changing lives through martial arts by instilling confidence and leadership skills, preventing violence by teaching peace through strength and developing in young and old a lifelong commitment to better health and fitness.

Karate is the only activity sport related that has a mandatory respect for others. For instance in our academy I have designed a system of 12 character trait study that rotates one per month and the students will have a work book that they complete on their own as part of their belt testing.

Students learn what these words mean and how to apply these skills along with their Karate skills.
