Amato’s Karate, 589 Palmer Avenue, Hazlet
Saturdays, 6 classes
10:00am - 11:00am
$25.00 each session plus $30 for a uniform to be purchased at Amato’s 

Uniform must be purchased ahead of time, preferably the week before the session begins.

This class is the perfect introduction to the exciting world of Karate.  The class is dedicated to the basics; stances, blocks, kicks, drills, punches and positioning of the arms and feet.  Repetition, along with fun moves, shows the students how to succeed in whatever they try.  There's more to karate than simply the moves…speed, agility, confidence, self esteem, how to resolve conflict peacefully, promote healthy bodies and strong minds.
