Our Award Winning Children's Programs
Karate International of Durham’s Martial Arts Success System has helped hundreds of kids. As every parent knows, exercise is important to children's health - combating obesity, unhealthy television and video game addiction, and lifelong negative lifestyle habits.
Not only does martial arts provide regular, structured exercise, but Karate has an equal emphasis on mental and moral development. The teachings of Karate require the student to cultivate concentration, focus, and awareness of the self and others.
Over and over again, the instructors at Karate International have seen students improve their confidence at school, their ability to defend themselves and others from bullies, and their focus and concentration on schoolwork. Many students have achieved better grades and leadership qualities through their involvement with martial arts.
Karate International of Durham, Inc. is headed by Jessie Bowen (10th Degree Black Belt) and a staff of AMAA Certified Instructors offering a number of programs for martial arts instruction and physical fitness.
Our system is a blend of martial arts styles creating the non-traditional American Karate System. Our style of karate is the art of Aiki-Shinkai Karate. The heart of Aiki-Shinkai teaching is the belief that all great techniques contain a balance of mental, physical, and spiritual forces.
