They don't just teach your children moves, they teach them values. They teach them to respect others as well as themselves. They learn to accept others as they are and just get along together. It's a beautiful thing to watch!

My daughter and I have been looking for something to do together and this seems to be it. We went in on Monday to check things out and by Wednesday we were in class. I have severe anxiety to the point where I rarely leave my house and I managed to get through a class with people I don't know doing something I've never done before. That is a miracle, not typical of me at all, I felt pretty comfortable and think karate may be my escape.

My daughter had very low self-esteem, this has changed her so much, she has grown so much. The price seemed high to me at first but seeing her self-esteem and self confidence improve makes it so worth it. The instructors are great with the kids and they have a way with all the kids. I would say please try it. We have recommended many of her friends and they are now a part of class and love it as well. THANK YOU ALL!!!

Fantastic Instructors that relate from the youngest to the oldest. Teach skills clearly and patiently and makes sure each individual "gets it"!
Solid mix of humor and ability and smarts make every instructor heresolid role models to have in life.
My child was not terribly flexible or graceful, now he can hold stance and do 20 solid kicks +, endurance is amazing and he feels STRONG, while understanding clearly that Karate is an Art and for Self-Defense, not to just kick someones butt.
Can't say enough about how great they are!!!!

This studio has been a wonderful experience all around. Stimulating in both physical and mental capacity with fun instructors and a support system to help you achieve your belt goals. Even on days where I just feel unmotivated to attend class, I always leave with a better attitude and more energy. Love it!

As someone on a budget, I know that the number one reason some parents may cringe at the packages is the cost. But in all honesty, it is the BEST INVESTMENT you are making and you definitely get your money's worth. The Senseis are amazing, compassionate, and not only teachers but role models to the kids. They are genuinely interested in your family's life, not just in your child's karate lessons; they are involved with the kid's teachers and with the parents to foster a balanced goal plan for the kids. Studio is always clean & someone is always accessible whether at the studio or by phone. We really see the benefits & love going to BBKS!

How to Enjoy Thanksgiving (without Forgoing Fitness)

Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday. While many Americans look forward to Thanksgiving Day
as an opportunity to eat whatever they want without counting calories, it’s important not to
lose sight of fitness – even as you face down a plate of turkey with all the fixings. Here are
some ideas to help you enjoy your Thanksgiving while also being true to your fitness and
exercise goals.

Exercise Leading up to Thanksgiving

The first thing you can do to ensure that Thanksgiving dinner doesn’t mean the end of fitness
is not to neglect your normal exercise routine in the days leading up to the holiday. If you
normally hit your martial arts school or gym for an hour-long workout, make sure to do it. The
exercise will ensure that your metabolism is revved up and that you’re ready to burn off the
food you eat on Thanksgiving.

Fitness on Thanksgiving Day

Your regular martial arts schools or gym might be closed on Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t
mean you should take the day off from exercise. There are plenty of things you can do to
make sure that you stay fit and healthy. For example:

1. Eat a healthy, protein-rich breakfast. You might think that it makes sense to hoard
calories for the Thanksgiving meal, but the truth is that if you eat a good breakfast
you’ll be less likely to binge later in the day. Try having scrambled eggs or whole grain
cereal with milk as a way of ensuring your stomach isn’t grumbling all day.

2. Take a long walk or go for a run in the morning. The benefit of getting some kind of
exercise early in the day is that it will burn some calories and prevent you from feeling
sluggish. It will also get you out of the house and away from high-calorie snacks that
might be available. If you have an at-home gym or weight room, or if the weather is
bad, you can get your exercise at home.

3. When mealtime arrives, be smart about what you eat. You don’t need to have triple
servings at Thanksgiving to be satisfied. If there are very rich dishes on the table, have
just a spoonful so you can taste them without going overboard.

4. Take another walk after dinner. You don’t have to go right away, but if you get outside
and get moving after the big meal, your body will burn some of the calories you’ve
taken in. You can even make the walk a family affair and get everybody some much needed
exercise.

The key is not to let Thanksgiving be an excuse for throwing away your usual fitness goals.

The Day after Thanksgiving

Just as important as what you do on Thanksgiving is what you do the day after. You can’t
afford to let one day of indulgence rob you of your fitness, so get right back into your normal
exercise and fitness routine as soon as possible.

Thanksgiving and fitness don’t need to be mutually exclusive. If you follow these tips, you can
give thanks for both food and fitness at the same time!
