School Director Sensei Kevin Kane

has been active in the Martial Arts for over 17 years. He is a certified 1st Degree Black Belt in Goshin Jitsu Karate, Judo and Aiki Jitsu.
USA Karate is a "Black Belt" school. The goal for each student is to help them earn their Black Belt both in Martial Arts and in life. Our Black Belt success system teaches students to set high but achievable goals. This journey develops self discipline, improves self esteem, and enhances both mental and physical skills.

Student Creed

I come to you with only karate...empty hands.
I have no weapons, but should I be forced to defend my self,
my principles or my honor,
should it be a matter of life or death, right or wrong,
then here are my weapons... karate... empty hands.
Karate ni sante nashi (there is no first attack in karate)


Student Pledge

  • I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and to avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth, or my physical health.
  • I intend to develop self-discipline, in order to bring out the best in myself, and in others.
  • I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively, to help myself and my fellow man, and never to be abusive or offensive.



Dojo Rules
One of the most important parts of learning karate is learning to show respect for the other people in class (and other people in general), respect for the activity in which we are engaged, and respect for yourself. We have several rules in effect in our karate classes, and you will be expected to know them and adhere to them. these rules reflect our desire to show respect for others.

1. BOWING (rei -pronounced "ray")- When entering or leaving the classroom, one should always rei toward the room, YOu should also rei whenever approaching an instructor or a student of higher rank. We will also rei at the beginning and end of class, YOu should also rei to your partner before and after any partnered exercise. Rei is to show respect, for an individual, or for any activity in which you are about to engage. In many ways rei is similar to a handshake.

2. TALKING IN CLASS
- There should be no talking in class, unless you have a question; then you should rei and direct to question to the instructor (other students most likely have the same question). Talking in class disrupts the class, making it difficult for others to learn. Before and after class are the appropriate times to ask general questions.

3. NAMES - All students will address each other by surname, Students will address Black Belt instructors as Sensei, and all colored belt instructors as Sir or Ma'am.

4. TEACHING
-No one under the rank of Black Belt will instruct another student without the permission from the school. This permission is shown by the SWAT patch which is worn on the right sleeve of the uniform. Any student will be given a warning the first time. The second time the student may be expelled.

5. UNIFORMS - The Gi (uniform) must be kept clean, neatly pressed and odor free. This shows respect for yourself and others. The Obi (belt) should never be washed. This shows respect for tradition and a student's hard work.

6. BEHAVIOR
- There will be no chewing gum, horse plan, swearing, etc. in the school. There is no running in the entrance or spectator area.

7. TUITION - Dues must be paid on time. A student must be enrolled in a program to take class. If you are in class and you are not currently enrolled you will be asked to leave the floor. This is fair to all other students and prevents any insurance risk to the dojo.

8 LEAVING CLASS
- If you have to leave class temporarily, or if you have to leave early, don't just walk off the floor. Ask the instructor first. If you know you are going to leave early, let the instructor know before the class starts.

9. TIMELINESS
- Arrive on time for class; you may certainly come early and begin to warm up on your own. Try not to arrive late for class, as it is very disruptive. If your attendance card is handed in after the beginning of class you may be missed for testing or stripe promotion.

10. JEWELRY
- Please do not wear any rings, necklaces, watches, earrings, etc. in class. You must remove any jewelry prior to class and keep it in your gym bag. Working in close proximity with other while wearing jewelry could result in injury, either to your partner or yourself. A ring, for example, could act like a brass knuckle, (Wedding bands may be covered with athletic tape).

11. SCHOOL IMAGE - Always try to promote a good image for karate and the USA Karate School. Training and practice should be done in a suitable facility , not on the sidewalk or street corner, Students who are provoking fights and do not practice the student pledge are not welcome to train at USA Karate. A karate student sets an example for all others to follow.

12. NOISE - Do not interfere with or disturb classes that are in session. Once your class is over, quietly and quickly clear the floor for the next class. Respect their right to train. All conversations of a personal nature must be conducted quietly and away from any classes in progress.

13. CHILDREN - Younger children who are watching class must be kept under control by a responsible individual or they should not attend. Children are not allowed to walk of play on any classroom floor regardless of if it is being used. This is for their safety and to ensure the quality of classes in progress.

14. NUTRITION
- It is recommended that students become more conscious of their diet and nutrition. It is a good idea to eat foods high in carbohydrates fir increased energy, along with a good multi-vitamin. Try to avoid high fat foods that will be counterproductive to your training. Remember to include protein in your diet for building your muscles. Always drink a lot of water throughout the day, before, and after class to replace what you will use (especially during belt tests).

15 SMOKING - Is not allowed in or around the dojo.

This is your school. Please help to keep it clean, neat, orderly and odor-free.

SCHOOL PROTOCOL
It is considered the job of every student to keep the school clean. If you see a mess or any garbage laying around, please pick it up. There are many garbage cans provided for your use, please dispose of waste properly. Keeping your school clean shows you have respect for what you are doing and demonstrates your desire to be a team player.

SCHOOL PROCEDURE
The school (dojo) is a place to learn karate. When a student enters the dojo, they should get ready for class as quickly as possible so as not to be disruptive. If class has not year been started by the instructor, students should warm up on their own. Students may use this time to practice what they wish. It is extremely impolite to arrive late for class. After class, students should clear the floor quickly and quietly so as not to disrupt the following class. USA karate is first and foremost a karate school. All social and personal activities must not interfere with classes.

KARATE: EXERCISE WITH A HIGHER PURPOSE

By Sensei Kevin Kane

It’s in the news every day. The rates of obesity and diabetes in children are skyrocketing while their levels of fitness are plummetting. The draw of the television, computer and gaming devices have combined with the ready availability of high calorie, low nutrition fast food and snacks to turn our youngsters into unhealthy couch potatoes. Our kids need help. If you are looking for something to offer your children that will not only provide a physical benefit, but can also help develop character, confidence and self esteem, consider Karate.

Often parents may be reluctant to explore martial arts with their children because they perceive that it encourages violence. The Buddist Monks are some of the oldest practitioners of martial arts. Their training began from a need for physical fitness, not fighting skill. In fact, kids who learn from USA Karate learn that in Karate, there is no first attack. Karate is truly a form of self defense, not attack.

Studies show that Karate improves general fitness, reflexes, flexibility, co-ordination and agility. The exercises preformed strengthen muscles, build stronger bones, improve cardiovascular fitness, and lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and depression. Long term training has proven to decrease stress, anxiety, and hostility, while it improves sleep habits, concentration and energy levels.

Fitness is only a part of the benefits. Through martial arts you learn that the mental is as important as the physical. With drills and application of self-defense techniques, you learn awareness, concentration, self-disciple, respect, and assertiveness. All of these skills can protect you from an attack or from falling into a hole in the sidewalk. They are also valuable attributes in business.
For those looking for a family activity, Karate is a workout the whole family can share. You find a new form of communication and experiences that belong just to you, creating a common ground to strengthen family relationships. You also create a built in support network to keep you motivated towards achieving your goals.

If you would like to try Karate for yourself or your children, we would like to invite you to visit our studio. Each new visitor will start with a complimentary one on one lesson with our head instructor. If you like what you see, we invite you to join us for 2 weeks of group lessons absolutely fee. We’re confident you’ll want to stay. Call USA Karate at 610.473.9650 and register today!
