Welcome to
East Coast Karate Institute

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Steven DiPietro.

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 East Coast Karate Institute 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

No way! In fact, karate makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Karate always has been about peace, and it always will be.
Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids howling with laughter, and constantly smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Karate is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.
Absolutely. Karate teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities grow them even more.

"They are running a phenomenal kids karate program here"

The instructors are all incredibly patient with the kids, and gently, consistently help cultivate their discipline, attention, focus, and integrity. They concentrate equally on the physical, mental, and ethical aspects of martial arts and do a great job of balancing these three aspects while keeping the kids engaged and having fun. Every class, in particular, ends with an extended dialogue with the kids where they discuss a principle of importance - e.g. "perseverance", "trust", "self-control", "honesty" etc. I'm super impressed with every class I sit through and marvel at how they do it. They all clearly genuinely like working with kids and really, they are the best support my son's mom and I have in raising our little boy into a strong and ethical young man.

"I love East Coast Karate"

My son started over a year ago and has learned so much. The instructors are amazing. Regardless of the class size they make sure there are enough instructors that the children get the personal attention they need. My son LOVES their summer camp and can't wait to go again. We even had his birthday party there and it was a blast! Also, the easiest party I have had for him! I can not say enough about how happy I am we came here! When my son started here he was shy and afraid to play any sport since starting Karate he is out going and the self confidence he got from karate has given him the confidence to try other sports and new things. They have flexible class times making it easy to adjust to your schedule. It is such a great place and the best part are the instructors you can tell they love what they do and really care about their students.

It is so important for kids/teens to have mentors in their lives. East Coast provides the tools to help their students grow into self assured adults. . East Coast teaches self discipline , leadership, perseverance, self respect and respect for others. It promotes the importance of balancing body, mind and spirit through being mindful and being in the present moment. But most importantly the kids have fun!
