Karate (ages 12+)
for Teens and Adults (ages 12+)
Martial Arts Isn’t Just For Kids!
While our martial arts training is an excellent personal-development activity for younger children, it’s great for teens and adults too. Our Smithtown Martial Arts teen and adult students usually find that they cope better with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just feel better overall. They also have a greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.
However, the greatest benefit of teen and adult martial arts at Empire State Karate is the increased sense of self confidence it builds. No matter what the style of martial arts - whether it’s karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitso, judo, aikido, tai-chi, or kendo - the physical and mental benefits are similar.
Physical Benefits of Martial Arts
Increased cardiovascular fitness
Improved muscle tone
Mental Benefits of Martial Arts
Lower stress levels
Emotional satisfaction - especially if you’re taking martial arts classes alongside your children.
Better concentration and focus
All of our martial arts Smithtown classes are individualized. Adults and teens participate at their own fitness level while progressing in skill and technique.
Martial Arts for the Whole Family
When participating as a family, martial arts provide a unique opportunity for sharing in a non-competitive fun activity. Plus, parents have the opportunity to reinforce the life lessons taught in our martial arts classes at home. All Empire State Karate classes provide an ideal workout for both men and women. Our teen and adult martial arts students range in age from young adult (12+) to seniors.
