Reviews for the Black Belt Karate Center in Orlando

Love seeing my son learning self defense from people who seem to truly care about children. Highly recommend the Black Belt Center to anyone who has kids and wants to put them in martial arts.

David Batista

My daughter has been taking karate lessons since she was five and she is now eight. Her face lights up because she loves it so much. She’s determined to become a black belt and even open her own dojo.

Massiel Fassino

My daughter loves this school. She makes us leave the house early so she can arrive early for pre-warm-up and often stays after her class is over so she can watch the next class. Very impressive.

Martial Arts for Children

Who or What is Influencing Your Child?

Children are like sponges. It’s what they’re soaking in that matters. They seek guidance and will get it from whatever options are available. 

Also, self-defense has never been more important than today. We’re not talking just about a bully attacking your child, but defense against poor decisions, dangerous influences, and a bad circle of friends. 

The Black Belt Center teaches much more than fancy punches and flying kicks.

We teach a mental defense against negative self-perception and self-talk.

How much life can change in a month? Turns out, it’s a lot. 

Sometimes, the perfect mix of opportunity and environment can completely change someone’s life. It’s about being in the right place, at the right time, with the right people.

At our summer camp, students create memories and skills that go beyond a run-of-the-mill summer camp.

We offer the ideal trifecta: fun activities, exciting field trips, and daily martial arts training.

Contact us to get the details and reserve your spot. Out of concerns for safety, space is limited.

Do You Teach Martial Arts Every Day?

Yes. We have one 45-minute class Monday – Friday

Are You Open When School Is Closed?

Yes. We offer one-day or weekly camps when schools close. We are closed on National holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas etc…

What Ages Do You Accept?

We accept children from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

Do I Need To Buy A Uniform?

No uniform is required. Children can wear their belt, black sweat pants and a school t-shirt.

Do I Need To Purchase Sparring Equipment?

Sparring equipment is required for the safety of your children. Though our sparring is light contact, we always put safety first.

Are You A Licensed Daycare Center?

We operate under the “come and go” policy as outlined in our County Child Care Facilities Ordinance.

We are not a daycare center. Our mission is to teach martial arts, fitness, and life skills.

My Child Is Shy And Introverted.

If there is any common success story from our martial arts program it’s students and parents telling us how we helped their child to “come out of his/her shell.”

We have specific drills and exercises that are effective for helping students take small steps toward a more confident presence.

My Child Has A Short Attention Span.

We understand that keeping attention can be a real challenge with this age group.

That’s why our program is fast-moving and engaging for the children.

Our instructors are also experts at helping children to re-focus in class until it becomes natural to the child.

My Child Is Not Very Active And Never Liked Sports Before.

We often think of the mental disciplines of martial arts but the physical disciplines are just as important and emphasized just as much.

Recognizing and resisting urges to act out are central to the discipline of making sure a student is not abusing the training.

That includes developing the self-control to resist urges.

My Child Is Constantly Fighting With His Sister. Are We Putting Her At Risk?

The responsible use of martial arts for good rather than harm is central to everything we teach.

Parents of our martial arts students are consistently impressed with how our training helps to mature the children in different ways and temper control is one of them.

Much of that has to do with a heightened self-awareness to recognize when things are “heating up” and how to de-escalate.”

My Child Has A History Of Quitting New Activities.

When you enroll your child into our school to help with self-discipline, it’s crucial that you work with the instructors to set clear expectations.

This starts with your child clearly understanding that the first discipline is to come to class twice a week and practice two non-class days.

To help you with that the child psychologists in the Martial Arts Teachers’ Association’s Certification program suggest you be aware of what activity the child is engaged in right before getting ready for class.

If they are playing their favorite game and having fun, they will be more resistant to stopping to go to class than if they were doing something that may not be as fun, like homework.

How Much Are Lessons?

Our tuition varies with the program you choose for your child.

We offer a 2-class trial lesson course so that you can see how your child likes the program and then we will go over all of the options for you.

What we do

Safety and Security

Our after-school and summer camp facility is a clean and safe environment for your child. Our instructors are trained not just to look out for the safety and security of our kids, but also to keep our facility spotless and clean.

Structure

From free time to learning time, our schedule has been developed through the years to keep kids engaged and active throughout the day. We also include a rest period so children can take a nap, read a book or just relax quietly.

Life Skills Training

Kids will learn about decision-making and actually do roleplays that will increase their confidence when faced with an uncomfortable situation like dealing with bullies. We’ll teach them situational awareness so they can recognize and avoid bad cirumcstances.

We Are a No Bully Zone

In our facility, bullying isn’t tolerated. We actually host seminars with national bullying experts to teach our families what bullying is and how to prevent it.

What We Do NOT do

We Don't Baby Sit

Our business is NOT the supervision or babysitting business. We teach kids martial arts and mentor children, building discipline, respect, instilling character, manners, and life skills, exercise, and self-defense.

We Do Not Compromise on Safety

Nothing is more important to you and to us than the safety of your child. Our instructors are screened and trained to always place safety first.

No Foul Language

We want kids to develop confidence and character. Words matter and we help the kids understand that through lessons and example.
