Youth and Adult Karate

Mt Si School of Karate offers martial arts training for youth and adults. We believe and teach the concept that our students need to be well-rounded, educated, competent individuals. We believe that encouragement works better than threats in motivating students to work harder and to push themselves through mental plateaus encountered in their training. We are systematic in acknowledging our students' achievements, whether in the martial arts or in their outside lives. Life skills are incorporated to our curriculum throughout the year, for application at home, in school, and in their martial arts training including:

All students will need a karate uniform. Uniforms can be purchased from the instructor; cost is $40, payable in cash or check. Students will also need protective sparring gear which can be purchased from the instructor. Cost of the set is $87. Students have opportunities for belt testing in the Fall and Spring. Tournaments are held several times a year, participation is optional.

Our classes are open to students ages 6 to adult, and all skill levels. This class structure allows families to train together, and a supportive setting where younger students gain knowledge from older, more experienced students. Group size is limited to 12 students per class.

Register on a month-to-month basis or for the full 4-month long Spring/Summer session from April through August. No classes are scheduled for May 30 or July 4.

Homeschool Karate

Our homeschool karate curriculum follows that of the evening program, with age appropriate instruction for students. Students have opportunities for testing throughout the season.

Karate Summer Camps

The karate camp is designed for kids new to martial arts and students with some experience. Join us for outdoor training at Si View Park.


“Sensei Michael is amazing with the kids, he has the right mixture of kindness, understanding and discipline. He focuses on the kids as a whole and has a class instead of just on the moves - he really understands the individuals in the classes.”
“I like the accessibility of the program. I like the flexibility of the people - in the class and at Si View. I like that it feels like ‘family.’”
