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.

There are two important reasons to consider East Coast Karate Intsitute. The first reason are the instructors. They care - genuinely care - about the children and their development of this art form. They talk to children with respect yet they ask for that same respect back. They know each student by name (which with the amount of students they have, always amazes me). They care that the children grow and develop in their journey in Karate always focused and building their confidence from young children Into young adults. And the teachers are highly trained individuals. Honestly - they are outstanding. The second reason is my commitment to introduce discipline to my kids and how this is built into how they are learning. I have always believed that the sooner they get into the practice of good discipline, the stronger they will be in school leading them to greater opportunities in life. I have found that East Coast Karate has made this an important part of their philosophy. So I naturally align with the principles and values of this institution. I hope you will consider East Coast Karate.

My girls have been taking karate at East Coast for the past 3.5 years. We originally started as an activity for my girls to learn responsibility, discipline, and focus but we ended up all falling in love with the facility, the instructors, and karate as a sport and way of life. The instructors are so sweet but top notch professional, who push my girls to strive to do their best. Ever since taking karate, their focus and discipline has increased, their confidence, and they realize that to be good at anything, meaning becoming a black belt, takes real time and dedication. Our family will forever be members at East Coast. Our motto is "Black Belts Or Bust!"

My son has been coming to East Coast Karate Institute for about 4 years already. Karate has not only helped him with improving body movements and coordination but also with discipline and self-control. All the instructors teach classes with high level of expertise and are devoted to teaching the kids not only technique but core values.

East Coast Karate provides a safe and encouraging environment where our son is growing in discipline and self-control while learning self-defense. The instructors are amazing in their ability to teach the techniques with patience and encouragement while maintaining order and safety. Our son is quite pleased, especially now that he has advanced to be able to spare with his classmates. There has never been an issue with egos or tempers getting out of hand - everyone seems to have a great time learning together in a fun atmosphere. Give ECKI a try!!

We decided to join east coast karate to give our young child some confidence. Now three years later he has not only increased his confidence but has further developed his courage and conviction. The owner is very hands on and the staff is very engaged and concerned about everyone's overall well being and dedication. Each lesson is very organized and well run, and every lesson ends with a word of week which essentially is a life lesson on the importance of behaving and being good.
