Can I Do Karate?
You are certainly never too old to learn karate and it even has a range of benefits if you are 40 or more years of age! As you may know, karate is a study in self-defense, but it also helps students with self-awareness and enables them to remain in control of their environment. Teenagers are at an age where they are seeking an independent identity and karate enables them to do this, plus martial arts comes with adult responsibilities that help students throughout their lives.
For adults, karate is an excellent way to snap yourself out of a sedentary lifestyle and improve your health. It can also give you an introduction to the world of self-defense and even increase your confidence level.

Karate Katas & Forms
These are special karate techniques that can be practiced without a partner, so you get the benefit of honing your skills without having to worry about injury. It develops fighting rhythms and simulates a fighting situation because you can experience the coordinated movements at full fighting speed. When performed correctly, kata practice teaches the development of the mind.
This is the closest thing to a real-world fighting situation you will encounter in karate class and is a fundamentally important part of what you will learn. Sparring forces you to use every single one of your skills and helps you to practice things such as timing, agility, speed, focus, and muscle and cardiovascular endurance. At Sandoval Karate, we only ever pair up students with comparable skill sets and abilities and ensure sparring is as safe an enterprise as possible. However, we also encourage students to use their skills to the best of their ability. We guarantee your confidence will be sky-high after a good sparring session.
Endurance, Speed & Strength
Karate is one of the best combinations of speed, strength, and endurance there is. The best martial arts manage to combine all of the above, and we teach students how to train to make sure there are no gaps in their skill set. The moves we teach require a certain level of physical strength because they involve being in control of your own bodyweight. Few people have this ability, but once you master it, expect a reduction in the amount of injuries you suffer. Additionally, you will need to be fast to get the best results from your moves, and of course you will develop endurance from all your hard work and practice!

Absolutely the best dojo I have ever been to, bar none!
I have studied martial arts for many years, in several different disciplines, in two states, and none of them ever had the devotion to a fun, educational, caring, family atmosphere that Sandoval Karate offers.
Being parents themselves, they know the value of positive influence and selflessness and how well it can define a child’s core. From holding ones self accountable to reaching out to others…
