Questions and Answers (FAQ), are listed questions and answers, all supposed to be commonly asked in some context, and pertaining to a particular topic

What are things I should look out for in a Martial Arts School?

Beware of year long contracts, “Black Belt Clubs” and Test fees.

Many schools are businesses now and will try to have you pay more by getting you to join an extra Black Bet Club or have high hidden Test Fees. At Steve Nugent’s, we do not use any of these techniques. Just “Old School” Karate.

Where do all of your Instructors come from?

All of our Instructors are home-grown. They have all trained directly under Grand Master Nugent so the curriculum is extremely consistent and exact.

Will my child have fun?

Yes! SNKI is a clean fun and a great way to give kids a head start on life. It has been our understanding that parents want the lasting benefits of confidence, respect, self-esteem and self-discipline that SNKI offers, however, we don’t want to struggle with the children when it’s time to get ready for class.

Our instructors have become leaders in the field of motivating children.

Motivation, excitement and fun are the essential tools we use to increase the learning and performance of our kids.  Our carefully structured environment will help your child develop physically, mentally and socially. Because your children will be surrounded by others with similar goals and aspirations, they will develop positive friendships and healthy peer groups.

What is the focus of the program for kids?

We have trained hundred of kids over the years, we have seen  children benefit from our unique programs:

  • Overweight kids who lost a few pounds through self-discipline and exercise and gained massive amounts of self esteem and confidence.
  • Smart kids, bored with school, who learned to set goals and reach higher.
  • Wild kids who learned how to focus and channel their energy in a more positive direction.
  • Shy kids who were brought out of their shell
What age child short start martial arts, karate?

Any age over 2 years! Most kids range from 5 to teenagers, but we have kids who are younger, too. Classes are customized to suit children of different ages. A teenager receives very different treatment than a 6 year old, for example.

I have 2 daughters (6 yr and 8 yr old) they both enjoyed the experience of learning karate and I see the transformation they have undergone, not only the skill but also with the attitude change of dealing the things on daily basis; thank you SNKI
