How can you or your child benefit from taking karate?
I believe Blue Ridge Karate in Mars Hill is as important as academics. You can learn all the information there is to offer but if you do not have the character development to put the information you learn to use then you are not performing at your highest level. Karate teaches goal setting, pushing yourself, managing your emotions, presenting yourself with confidence, awareness of situations and the focus and discipline to make it all work. We at Blue Ridge Karate believe that you should be able to handle yourself with confidence in a practical self-defense situation and hopefully you will never be in that position to have to use self-defense. You will, however, utilize your character every day you are alive. Our character demonstrates who we really are as individuals and will determine our success throughout life.
