What's the difference between Kickboxing and Karate for kids?

Youth Karate is for students between the ages of 4-18 years old. Students in our karate class not only learn self-defense, how to fight, and get in the best shape of their lives but they also learn when and why to fight.

Our main goal at Scholars Academy is to make our parents proud. Our youth karate program is centered around this!

What's the difference between ZOOM classes and in-person classes?

Answer: Zoom classes are 30-minute sessions 3 times a week and in-person are 45-minute classes 2 times a week basically. Zoom classes are done at home but are just as intense as the in-person classes. The biggest difference is that you will have a training partner in the in-person classes. This is to limit your contact with others in classes.

Please note: Because of COVID-19 students are encouraged to practice social distancing at all times at the academy.

With the different belt cycle, how long will it take me to get my black belt?

Answer: It really depends on when you start. Although black belt is a goal, it's not the only goal at Scholars Academy. We want you to enjoy the journey to black belt and learn as much as possible along the way. If you start as a junior student it will take about 3 or 4 years to obtain a black belt. Testing is every 2 months.

I didn't martial arts at another school. Can I keep my belt?

Answer: We will test you to see where you fit in our belt system. Remember not every martial arts program is the same. A Scholar Yellow belt is not the same as a yellow belt from down the street. Your belt represents the quality instruction and fundamentals of the program you are coming from. We take great pride in our students and what they have learned along their journey. Whether you are a Yellow belt or a Black belt the lessons learned are unique to us. We believe the same would be true for a any school.

What if I forget to dress out for class?

Answer: Depending on whether or not this is a recurring issue we will ask you to sit out or train in what you have on. However, because we are a team looking to teach our student members how to be responsible we ask that you remember to dress out daily.
