Here at Kaizen Karate Academy


Our mission statement is to

“use family martial arts as a means of making a positive impact in our community”


Kaizen is a Japanese term defined as Incremental Improvement.  

Understanding that mastery doesn’t happen in a single day, we encourage our students to take one positive step towards their goal of blackbelt daily.  


Small victories build up confidence, and over time you will reach your goals. “Better than Yesterday”


Kaizen offers state of the art facilities run by a highly trained and certified professional staff.


Traditional Martial Arts teach Respect, Discipline, Focus, and Self Control; all while having fun in a clean and safe environment.


We are... Kaizen!


Our instructors' strengths include both youth and adult classes. We feel that an important part about martial arts is teaching leadership skills to a new generation, as well as encouraging families to train together to reach their full potential.


We hope to see you soon!
