My daughter and I attended the Okra Strut last year 2018. We saw Sensie's table where he was offering two weeks of free classes. My daughter seemed interested so we accepted the challenge. We took the free classes and one year later, here we are with my daughter currently working on her Red Belt. I am very proud of her and glad she made the decision to keep going. Sensie is great with kids and teaches them all types of techniques. I would definitely refer Universal School of Karate to anyone who is interested.

Like most of the parents under this post, I am very thankful to have found this studio. The sensei is very helpful and have made our family feel at home. My children has been hooked on the classes ever since they took the free classes. As a mother of 4 I never thought I would be able to afford the classes, but he always said that it’s about teaching and not about getting money (so the classes are super affordable). My children grades has greatly approved due to “Sensei’s dollars” they are trying their best so that they can show their Sensei. My son made all A’s for the very first time and my daughter made the honor roll as well. So it’s not just karate, it’s getting an extended family, it’s an investment in my children future, and I love it! 💖

My daughter had been asking me to try a karate class for months. When Sensei Campos had his first open house, when he was opening the school, she tried a class. She was hooked. Sensei Campos makes learning the techniques and forms fun. He uses games to keep the kids engaged in learning. At The Universal School of Karate, the emphasis is not just on the karate forms and techniques but creating well rounded students. School grades and behavior at home looked at each time the child is ready for the next belt. They also offer monthly activities such as movies day, bowling, and the trampoline park. These activities allow the students to socialize with their karate peers outside the school. The students are dedicated and motivated because of the leadership. I would highly recommend The Universal School of Karate.

Our adult classes are not just about learning self-defense techniques but a total “mind” and “body” workout. Our classes are structured, so students of all ages feel safe and comfortable regardless of their skill level. From someone that has never done karate before to black belts in other styles, USK provides a supportive environment where learning is fun, exciting and challenging.
