Kids Karate

These classes are taught by Sensei Joe Cayer & his assistants.  Sensei  also teaches this self-protection tactics program for the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (Crime Prevention Dept.) and has received the Florida Crime Prevention Association Award for Leadership and the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office volunteer award in 2013. At ECMA, we believe that attitude matters! We focus on the positive and overcome the negative! We teach common sense before self-defense and encourage kids to be kind and helpful! Our students respect themselves and others and support their sisters and their brothers-and they always try their best!

  • Does your child have trouble focusing?

  • Would you like your child to be stronger, more coordinated?

  • Do you wish your child was a bit more helpful at home and at school?

  • Do you want your child to be able to defend him- or herself?

  • Would it be helpful if your child knew how to interact politely with adults?

  • Do you want to give your child the best chance to succeed in life?

We provide a safe, clean place where your child can develop with lots of positive support. We combine the knowledge and attitudes of ancient martial arts with cutting-edge principles of teaching. Our kids are true Karate Kids!  We teach them Shotokan Karate and have a very structured and organized ranking system to keep them on track and focused.  Our Kids learn actual self-defense tactics for bullies and child predator lures.  They learn escapes and situational awareness.  They build self-esteem and discipline while developing focus.  Life skills are incorporated into the program to help coping skills, defiant behavior, fear based actions and character enhancement. They learn, grow and have fun in the process! So do we!

You and your child can watch with absolutely no cost or obligation!
