Kid’s Karate Classes in Lakewood

Our Youth’s classes are taught in a safe, fun and exciting environment, where students are not compared to each other, but rather progress at their own pace. The competition is “from oneself to oneself”. Our goal is to instill leadership skills in our youth to set them on the path for success over all in life.


Confidence truly is the “key to self-defense, Saying No to Peer Pressure, Stopping the Bullies and leading a happy and fulfilling life.”
One of the greatest tools for building confidence in self-defense and safety skills is experience. Your child will experience a wide variety of safety and self-defense scenarios that will help to prepare them for real-life dangers and situations. Your child will participate in self-defense drills that are designed to build their confidence as their knowledge grows. They will learn to set goals to reach higher levels helping them achieve. Once a student starts to achieve, they begin to apply self-discipline, which leads to greater achievement, and achievement develops confidence.

This class will also teach discipline and self control. Self-discipline itself is not enough, we also teach our children the art of self-defense, an important life skill. Children today face more bullies and negative peer pressure than ever before, so it is essential they have the skills necessary to distinguish between good and bad, right or wrong.

By teaching children self discipline and self-defense, children become empowered with the two most important tools they need to build confidence. With confidence, children will succeed and find happiness in life.

This is why at Power of One Self Defense Institute, we teach a realistic, streetwise self-defense system that combines the most effective martial arts, kickboxing and grappling techniques, so children learn to defend themselves in virtually any situation, whether they are standing up or end up on the ground. They also learn conflict resolution and when they should and shouldn’t use their newfound skills.


  • Children who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive
  • Children who know how to defend themselves usually don’t have to, because they carry themselves in a more confident manner, and confidence alone is a great deterrent to bullies.
  • Children who train in the martial arts learn the value in setting goals and following through to achieve them.
  • Children who achieve their Black Belt have a higher tendency to become leaders in society.
