The benefits of karate training go far beyond the physical aspect. We see how it has affected our sons in all facets of their lives; improved school performance, better confidence, solidifying their relationship with each other. We couldnt be more pleased.

Introducing Team Pendo

Team Pendo Karate

Pendo now provides our students the opportunity to participate in our Karate Competition Team! Team Pendo Classes will begin at the start of our second session. The team’s purpose is to teach students how to grow through competition, and to motivate them toward excellence in Martial Art.

Team Pendo provides our students the means to learn good sportsmanship, camaraderie, and quality of character, through Martial Art Competitions and Tournaments.  Our students will engage with children from other Karate Schools in a way that teaches them the life lessons of winning and losing well.

We also want to have some fun!
