Little Dragons Karate Classes (3-5 Years)
There is a great deal of benefit to be achieved by martial arts students who start early. In fact, many studies have shown that physical activities in young children, such as karate classes, can increase motor skills, improve listening, and hone mental skills. Furthermore, students who take karate are better behaved at school and at home, as they are taught discipline and respect in a fun and interactive way. Please contact a member of our staff today to learn about the benefits your child will receive.
Kids Beginners Karate Classes (6-11 Years)
Here at Sandoval Karate we know that if learning isn’t fun, kids won’t want to come to class. Fortunately, learning is fun and students can’t wait to come back to class. Classes are comprised of learning self-defense movements, karate katas, and martial arts forms. These practice techniques serve to act as muscle memory, so that students react instinctively to a threat – moving out of harm’s way, blocking the attack, or counter-striking. Come by today for your first free class and meet our karate family, you’ll be glad you did!
Teen & Adult Karate Classes (12+ Years)
If you’re looking for a great way to get into shape and make new friends, allow us to introduce you to our Teens & Adult karate classes! These classes are designed to give each student a healthy dose of cardio while teaching essential self-defense skills. Furthermore, we teach advanced karate katas and forms, which provides students with the confidence needed to stand-up for themselves or thwart off an attack. Students are instructed at their skill level, allowing students to work with similarly skilled peers.
Teen & Adult Freestyle Kickboxing Classes (13+ Years)
For those students who want a bit more of a challenge, we’ve introduced our Freestyle Kickboxing class, which is designed around Muay Thai fighting techniques. Students are pushed harder to become stronger, more flexible, and better all-around martial artists. Class participation is limited, so be sure to sign-up earlier to secure your position. Lessons are taught in the evenings on Mondays and Thursdays plus again on Saturday morning. If you’re looking for a bit more intense of a workout, we highly recommend to take a closer look at this program.

A short time later, Gilbert had provided land to the Arizona Eastern Railway to construct a railroad line from the prospering city of Phoenix to the town of Florence, which led to an influx of Mormon settlers fleeing Mexico.
Gilbert, Arizona - Home to Gilbert Days
The town was officially incorporated in 1920 on July 6th and for the next twenty to thirty years the town remained a close-knit community of farmers. This is right around the time that Gilbert earned the nickname of “Hay Capital of the World”.
In the 1970s, Gilbert started to take shape. During this time, Phoenix’s growth poured over to many of the suburban areas, Gilbert included. Even in those days, town planners had the foresight to annex land and prepare for population growth well into the 21st century.
