Let’s get you started…
Our goal at Glens Falls Karate Academy is to provide the most comprehensive, age specific martial arts training available.
The key words there being, age-specific …
Educational needs in kids are very different than those of teenagers, and still miles away from those of adults!
We present our kids curriculum to each of our age/skill based programs in a way that helps our youngest students build skills that they can apply to every area of their lives – meaning our students have a blast in class, while learning valuable skills that enable them to be the very best version of themselves they can be!
“My daughter has been attending Glens Falls Karate Academy for about a year now. The education she receives there is second to none. My daughter is treated with respect, dignity and kindness. She is challenged, engaged and entertained. I’ve seen my daughter grow, mature and gain confidence thanks to this community. What parent wouldn’t want that for their child? … and the lessons she learns at the academy are translating into other areas of her life. The staff at Glens Falls Karate Academy are a phenomenal team; they genuinely care about their students and run a wonderful school. Chris Murphy has found his calling as he educates each student at their level, uses his expertise, kindness and humor, but isn’t a pushover. I highly recommend this Academy.”
Adults and older teens on the other hand, come to us with specific goals in mind. Whether it’s learning self-defense, jump starting a fitness routine, or relieving the stress of being an adult – our curriculum is presented in a way that will both challenge you physically and develop a level of calm control over your own body to skyrocket your self-confidence.
“I started studying at GFKA about six months ago. Since I have started, I have learned more about myself; mentally and physically. The confidence and discipline has made me a better person. Sensei Murphy is a fantastic leader and his presence is felt throughout the dojo. The classes are educational, fun and definitely a workout! No matter how old you are, these classes will teach you a lot about yourself and show you what your body is truly capable of. I’m very proud to be a part of the Glens Falls Karate Academy.”
