When I wandered into the House of Karate I found a place that pushed me to improve myself each day. The physical benefits of strength, coordination, and balance were quick and easy to see. The mental benefits of diminished fear, inner calm, and increased self-esteem took a bit longer to achieve, but now I feel each every day. The spiritual comes from their treating me the way they want to be treated. With respect. Hey, the first lesson is free, try it you'll like it.
