The emphasis of our program is on establishing self-discipline and courtesy. The structure of respect is built into our karate instruction. The programs provide confidence and character building by assisting the students to accomplish their goals. Starr’s Black Belt Academy teaches students to have self-control over his or her body and develop the ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations.

The movements of karate develop coordination, increase strength and flexibility, which is very important especially in growing children.

The awarding of the the higher levels of Japanese karate belts gives the students the sense of achievement and accomplishment. We keep this very much in mind. The length of time for achieving belts can be from three to six months. We award stripes on the belts while a student progresses through a particular belt. Training for these tests, enhance the student’s ability to concenrate as well as plan for and triumph over hurdles.

Students are exposed to sparring in a controlled atmosphere under instruction of our instructors at all times. The foundation of Starr’s Black Belt Academy is it’s self-defense value. We are very careful to teach our students to use common sense before self-defense and never to be abusive or offensive. The result of our program is a self-confident individual who does not need to bully or show off to others.
