Welcome to
North Shore Martial Arts Center

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Bill Craig.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at North Shore Martial Arts Center is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

I take the adult Integrated Combat Arts class. I had no martial arts experience before joining. Everyone is welcoming and supportive. The instruction is great. It's challenging without being overwhelming, and I like being able to get different perspectives from the three different, wonderful instructors. It's good exercise, useful for self defense, and it's interesting to learn a mix of different disciplines. The classes tend to be small, so you get a lot of personal instruction. The other students are awesome people. I learn so much from them too. Everyone works hard, but we have fun. It's a safe, encouraging environment. You'll love the community and the instruction.

Just about the only activity my high-energy 9 year old looks forward to more than playing video games/screen time is karate night at North Shore Martial Arts!! More than just a martial arts class; emphasis on respect for self, respect for others, and growing socially responsible citizens. Great program.

My son has attended this dojo for a year now and he loves it! The instructors are a dedicated group that not only teach karate but also teach life skills are take a genuine interest in each child. The classes teach focus, commitment, and respect as well as the gifts of self-defense and exercise.

Great martial arts program!Bill really does a great job. Not only do they teach how to defend yourself but also they also teach discipline. That was the most important thing for me. I grew up doing martial arts and it was almost like a boot camp. This is so much better for the kids. My son doesn't stop talking about how much he's learning and enjoys it. The teachers are all great and he also gets the younger students to help out in the classes witch the younger kids really look up to. It's been a pleasure to be there. I recommend it to anyone who needs some put a little structure in your kids daily attitude!
