Our daughter LOVES everything about coming to classes! She started last May, and hasn't looked back. Her confidence has grown so much, starting within weeks of starting! She loves how every week she is learning new skills, she loves the staff and she loves the challenges that they give them every week to work on. She looks forward to classes every week, and jumped at the opportunity to sign up for extra classes that would help her learn more. She went from being a complete gymnastics girl to everything karate. Her Christmas list was filled with rebreakable boards, pads, punching bags, t-shirts, room decorations and anything else she could think of to practice karate or that was karate! It's only been about 10 months, but you can't meet this girl and not know that she loves karate, and we have Canton Karate to thank for this! Overall, the staff at Canton Karate has changed our daughter in so many ways, but especially in her confidence! We're so glad we found them!

The kids enjoy it, they learn to be more disciplined and behaved at the same time! Master Martin is exceptionally patient (I know because I get frustrated just watching it) and is a wonderful instructor. I am very happy with the way he mentors his pupils especially while he has his assistant instructors available to give one on one instruction to those that struggle. Having my children in his classes and seeing what they actually learn, accomplish and develop into is well worth the cost.

The Perfect Martial Arts School. Master Martin does a great job of combining all of the elements of martial arts into the curriculum, There is a mixture of history, discipline and practical application. The classes are also taught specifically for each age group to maximize the benefit of the kids and adults. What is being taught will resonate with a 3 or 4 year old (my son) or an adult(myself).

My son goes here and loves it. Master Martin is great with the kids. They work on focus, concentration, self discipline, confidence and many more things kids need. My son is always excited to go and it's great to see the smile on his face. I see the improvement at home and in school since he has been going.

Canton Karate has been amazing for our family! My two have been enrolled for 6 months now. They have always struggled with attention, focus, and self control and it was beginning to impact school. They LOVE Karate! They want to practice at home, and love going to class. and their performance in school has made a complete turnaround! For the first time my daughter's teacher this year says she is focused, attentive, and hard working!
Master Martin is patient but firm and disciplined. He treats each student differently in class. and that's a good thing! I don't know how but he seems to know what every student needs to personally challenge them. I find myself repeating Master Martin's words around the house and at work. They did love the Saturday forms/sparring class and we will miss that. But we are all excited to see what comes next!

My son started Karate lessons at Canton Karate several months ago and we can't be happier with that decision! My son has gained so much confidence. On his first day, he was so nervous to step onto that mat. Master Martin and the rest of the staff were so patient and encouraging with him. He loves going now and has so much fun at each class. Master Martin and all the staff at Canton Karate are so encouraging, helpful and very accessible. I can't say enough good things! I highly recommend Canton Karate!

Amazing place with AMAZING staff!! The way they work with kids is wonderful! You truly feel like family from the time you walk in the door. They offer so many different class options. My kids have learned so much already from their short time here. I'm amazed at the new skills and discipline they are learning. The confidence I'm seeing fostered in my children is great. Master Martin has an amazing way of dealing with the kids. It is usually in a way that corrects the problem without disrupting everyone else. Can't wait till my 4 year old is ready to start as well. Thank you Canton Karate!!

Canton Karate is a great place for kids to teach them how to respect others, self esteem, and how to treat bullies. I would recommend Canton Karate to all my friends. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. I'm glad that we are part of the Canton Karate family. My grandson has learned so much in just a short period of time of being here. He really looks forward on coming here and getting out of his shell. Thank you Canton Karate.

Extreme Skillz 10-14 year olds

Welcome to the Extreme SKILLZ® Program

This program was specifically designed to target the stages of development of 10 to 14-year olds. The curriculum in the Extreme SKILLZ Program includes years of research and development proven effective for this age group. Our goal for the Extreme SKILLZ Program is to maximize the effectiveness of each participants training with valuable lessons that will enhance their life.


The Extreme SKILLZ Program is a preliminary Martial Arts training course that focuses on building 10 to 14-year olds capabilities; physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. We call this program “Extreme” SKILLZ because it will help each student properly develop extreme skills they are currently acquiring at this age. We are confident in what our program can do for your son or daughter.


People this age are in a unique growth period in their life. They are refined in their gross and fine motor skills, while establishing a foundation in extreme skill development. These extreme skills include: dexterity, reaction, versatility, momentum, precision, instinct, strength, and vision. In any other sport of activity, all of these 8 skills are important to have. The more exposure to proper development in each of these skills, the better your son or daughter will be. For this reason, we have tailored a 9-level training course that increases the intensity of each skill at every level.


In the Extreme SKILLZ Program, your son or daughter will train in an environment that is just right for them. They will train with other peers within their age group, and not have to be limited or overwhelmed by younger or older students. Each class will accommodate every student’s skills and abilities in a way that is not overly demanding or intimidating. That means more age-specific instruction with better results. We guarantee it!



This program was designed to target age-specific skills for children between the ages of 10 to 14 years -and- children that have completed preparatory programs such as the Core SKILLZ®, Basic SKILLZ®, and Early SKILLZ programs. These skills are comprehensive enough to challenge pre-teens and teens, yet attainable in a format that is fun to follow. This program is also systematic in format so that all styles can conform to the layout and develop talented Martial Artists up to the rank of Red-Black Belt.


Here’s a brief overview of how the program works:

  1. There are 8 Extreme SKILLZ® that each student must develop continuously as they advance in rank.
  2. The 8 skills are taught individually so that a student training 2 times per week will work on all 8 skills over a course of 4 weeks.
  3. Your testing cycle should be a total of 9 weeks, 8 weeks to cover each skill twice with a week of review to ensure proper development before testing.
  4. The students’ goal is to develop the necessary challenges per skill as outlined in the Extreme SKILLZ® testing charts.
  5. As the student accomplishes each skill requirements, per the testing charts provided in this manual, the student will earn a skill stripe.
  6. The student’s goal is to collect all 8 skill stripes within the 9 week testing cycle in order to test for the next rank.
  7. As each student earns their new, they will proceed to earn all 8 skills stripes based on the next belt requirements per the testing chart.
  8. Once the student reaches the rank of Black Belt Recommended, he must to complete a test that covers all of the beginner, intermediate, and advanced curriculums so that he earns the opportunity to test for his junior Black Belt (See the Elite SKILLZ® Manual for a structured curriculum up to 3rd Degree Junior Black Belt).


The goal for this program is to establish extreme skills that are significant in a typical athlete between the ages of 10 to 14-years old. All students that graduate this program are considered knowledgeable in the skills provided and therefore deserve the right to advance to the prestigious rank of Junior Black Belt. Proper execution of this program can build great Martial Artists in larger quantities than most traditional Martial Arts curriculums due to its comprehensive approach in age-specific training.
