Classes for everyone

Our training program we will take your child on a “Quest to Be Their Best” through method discipline and vigorous physical and mental practice in a fun, engaging, hands-on approach. We here at One Step Beyond understand that each student is his/her own unique being. As instructors in the martial arts, our responsibility is to “weed out the weakness, not the weak.” The curriculum that we teach in our dojo is designed so that, with diligent effort, our students can achieve their ultimate goals. Many of our students not only learn physical aspects of martial arts (punching & kicking) but also gain the internal mental benefits of self-confidence, self-discipline and stress management.

Pee-Wee Pandas

14 months – 3 years old

The Pee-Wee Pandas program was designed by Sensei Sarah and is meant for children as soon as they can walk. This group of infant/toddlers will work on balance and coordination. Our youngest students begin to work on color and shape recognition and counting. Listening skills, familiarization with our equipment, and the core values of respect are also taught. The belt requirements for this age group focus more on progress, vocabulary building and (forgive the pun) baby steps!

  • Tues: 5:00–5:30pm

Little Dragons

3 – 6 years old (All Ranks)

The Little Dragons program is designed for children within the preschool age 3 to 5 years old. We focus on the core principles of respect, discipline, honesty, courtesy, and integrity. The basics of balance, coordination, cooperation, kicking, punching and blocking are taught as well as some basic life skills; stranger awareness, fire safety, out and about safety, bike safety, etc. This program is a great compliment to any preschool education that a child may be getting or a great prelude to any early childhood education.

  • Tues: 5:30–6:00pm
  • Wed: 5:00–5:30pm
  • Thur: 5:45–6:15pm

Tiny Tigers

6 – 8 years old (All Ranks)

This program is for students aged 6 to 8 years old. All ranks train together from novice White Belt through Tiny Tiger Gold Belt. Gold Belts can be promoted into our Junior Beginner program at the rank of full Yellow Belt.The emphasis in these classes is put on self control, self discipline and our core values of respect, honesty, courtesy and perseverance. We introduce basic techniques as well as general life skills such as fire, home & school safety drills.

  • Tues: 5:00–5:30pm
  • Wed: 5:30–6:00pm
  • Fri: 5:30–6:00pm

Junior White Belts

8 – 12 years old

Novice classes for ages 8 to 12 years old. Our goal in these classes is to introduce our new students to our core values of respect, honesty, courtesy and perseverance all while learning the basic techniques of the martial arts and improving their general physical fitness level.

  • Tues: 6:45–7:30pm
  • Wed: 6:45–7:30pm
  • Thur: 5:00–5:45pm

Karate Kids

8 – 12 years old (Yellow & Up)

These classes are for our Yellow Belts and up who have been promoted out of the Junior White Belt class and also for Tiny Tigers who have achieved their Gold Belt. Our goals here are to emphasize confidence building with our sparring drills and to expand the student’s knowledge of martial arts techniques and their self defense applications. At the rank of Orange Belt the opportunity to join our Black Belt Club is presented.

  • Tues: 6:45–7:30pm
  • Wed: 6:45–7:30pm
  • Thur: 5:00–5:45pm

Teen & Adults

13 years old & up (all ranks)

These classes are for 13 years old & up. Students of all ranks from White Belt to Black Belt train together. We find the combination of teen energy and adult maturity a great formula for exciting and energizing classes. The mixture of belt ranks also allows a novice White Belt to be paired with an upper level belt so that they can acquire the tools needed for improved confidence and self defense as quickly as possible.

  • Tues: 7:30–8:30pm
  • Wed: 7:30–8:30pm
  • Thur: 7:45–8:45pm
