I teach classes in Karate, Jujitsu, and Aerobic Kickboxing on a daily basis to children and adults of all ages. Our school's primarily focus is on self-defense and self development. In addition to teaching I oversee the management, curriculum, testing and quality control of all the students and instructors. I teach all levels of martial arts from beginners to Masters. We offer self-defense programs for women and institutions interested in having their employees trained in self-defense and safety. Our Anti Bully and confidence program includes a character development program for the children. Concentrating on effort, courage, perseverance and much more goes hand and hand with our child karate program. I teach a specialized program for children with autism, ADD, ADHD and other nonverbal learning disabilities. This program includes karate, self defense and the Brain Gym exercises. I also teach many students with physical challenges. This curriculum is customized for each student. Our focus is on the most efficient specialized self-defense system for the individual. New Horizon Karate is the home of American Kempo Jujitsu. This martial arts system is a self-defense based and comprising the kicking, punching, and striking techniques in Kempo and the joint locks, flips and throws of jujitsu. This system is easy to learn and very practical.
