Kids Karate and Martial Arts Classes for
Charleston and Mt. Pleasant SC
Hi, my name is Joshua Wood. I am one of the owners of Mt. Pleasant Martial Arts.
Years ago I had a young child named Garrett who came in for a karate class. In our introductory lesson, I showed him what we would get to do in karate classes. At the very beginning of his class, he cried because he was so nervous about doing new things. At the end of the lesson his mom enrolled him in class and his confidence went through the roof. I have seen so many children come through our classes that have built their confidence by leaps and bounds.
Another student named Caleb started classes with us years ago just because he needed more focus. He was acting out at home and needed something to pour himself into. After starting class it helped him focus at school and made a huge difference in his attitude and focus at home.
I enjoy seeing parents and adults fall in love with the physical and mental challenge of improving themselves. The reason I started teaching martial arts was because of the value that I see it create for children and adults mentally and physically.
Some of the most valuable parts of our programs:
Positive Peer Group.
Teachers passionate about your child's success in martial arts AND in life.
Character lessons taught in every class.
A focused curriculum that teaches about building confidence and self-discipline.
Healthy role models to inspire the children to do their best.
From our google reviews:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Olivia Body: "We enrolled our then 5-year-old son as a beginner simply because they were running a special and the location is so close to our house. What we didn't expect, however, was the degree to which he would end up loving the instructors and the experience as a whole. Mr. Wood is an amazing teacher and coach - constantly encouraging students in a myriad of ways - and we couldn't be more pleased with how focused and excited our son seems every time he attends classes. I would encourage anyone who's looking for a fun and engaging martial arts experience, either for their child or themselves, to visit and see just how wonderful it truly is!"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kim C: My daughter has been a student for about a year and absolutely loves it. It’s a great place to learn karate and also have fun. Mr. Hawk is an amazing instructor and is great with the students. Love it!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Megan Abbott: "Love it!! Mr. Wood is wonderful. They keep the lessons interesting and interact with each person in the class.
We've seen lots of positive changes in our son in the short time he's been taking karate there. It comes as no surprise to us because he's got the best teachers we could have hoped for! =)"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ James Huffman: "Mr. Hawk's style has been an exceptional experience for our son. While he teaches karate, it's his approach to sharing life skills in building integrity and character that have been most valued."
Our students love us 😁
