This program is designed for self-defense purposes only. Any student found starting a fight and using their knowledge for offensive rather than defensive purposes will not be allowed to continue the class.
All-Star Youth's karate curriculum defines competencies that a student is expected to know in order to advance in belt rank and stripes/degrees within a belt rank. ASY belt ranks go from white belt to junior black belt. When students are eligible, they will have the opportunity to test for their next belt rank. As students advance in rank, instruction in forms (kata) and sparring are provided.
All karate students are invited to participate in the All-Star Youth Showcase / Tournament, which is held during fall and spring semesters only. Participation is optional.

Students will perform with their class against other ASY classes of similar age and skill level.
A karate uniform is required for all students who have a Yellow belt or higher. Uniforms must be purchased by the end of the second week of class. Karate uniform is optional for White belt students.
