Karate has many benefits for participants no matter the age. Children can develop the skills necessary to stay safe and succeed in life. Age-appropriate karate training is provided while focusing on the development of attributes that foster success throughout one’s life.

For adults, karate is centered on personal development of mental and spiritual fortitude as well as self-defense.

All registrations are done at the Trumbull Recreation office, located at 5892 Main St.
