Our Programs

Our Programs

We offer a karate school, after school program, birthday parties and summer day camp. Pocahontas Karate is Carbon County’s premiere Children’s Karate Program. Our classes are designed with children (age 6 and up) in mind: providing a dynamic and active learning environment. These classes focus on developing coordination, self-control, balance, flexibility, strength, stamina, and discipline in a safe, enjoyable, and supportive atmosphere. This unique program of fitness, fun, and self-development will help teach your child the key traits necessary to succeed in life. 

Pocahontas Karate Classes

Pocahontas Karate provides instruction for children starting age 6.  We offer the most unique Martial Arts program anywhere:

  • The foundation is karate.  As the student advances up the ranks, basic elements of other disciplines are added to make the student more well rounded.
  • Unlike other schools, we also add some Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga. American kids are often unfocused. Many Asian children have a powerful, disciplined mind. It is better than being on meds! Breathing and balance are also critical.
  • Martial Arts are an ancient ART form. We do NOT forget that here.  This isn’t the Cobra Kai.
  • Other schools advertise SELF-confidence, SELF-control and SELF-esteem as a hook.  But your kid has to work with OTHERS.  The GROUP.  They need social skills also! Self centered people don’t get far in life and struggle with social contacts. We call it a Centered Self.
  • Optimal stretching, and conditioning/strength of kicking, punching and blocking for flexibility, coordination, focus, physical health and mental endurance.  (Buzz words we need to mention…)
  • Those registered in the Black Belt program can progress through the belts from White to Advanced Black Belts.

Summer Day Camp

We offer day camps (about 2:30 to 7:30 PM) during your child’s vacation time (ages 6-17). Summer Days Camps are a fun and constructive way for your child to spend their vacation time. Martial arts, arts and crafts, games, etc.

Birthday Parties

Having a birthday party here at the “Native Reservation” is a piece of cake! You bring the cake, food and party supplies, we provide tables, chairs and a karate/yoga theme activity! We also do cleanup! (Note we do not “prepare” food). We are dedicated to your family and guests and can handle groups up to 30. 

Afterschool Program

The Afterschool Program at Pocahontas Karate runs 5 days a week after school, from about 2:45-5:45pm. We register those ages 6 to 17. Our staff seek to immerse children in a safe, loving, fun, and meaningful environment.

Elements of the program throughout the week may include karate, yoga, tai chi, games, an art or craft (there may be a craft/kit fee), after-school rest, a place to do their homework, a snack, etc. For insurance and safety reasons, a mask is worn by all when together, except when eating.

Please note that we are a private karate school, receive no funding, and are not considered daycare, baby sitting or childcare in the state of PA. We do not offer occasional or one day “drop off your kid” service. Our students are long-term only, on a monthly tuition (or weekly summer day camp) model.
