The Basic Program is a short-term training system designed to take your student through their first three beginner belts

Basic Students will focus their physical training on strength, fitness, self-defense, coordination, and balance. This will be paired heavily with the mental disciplines of respect, control, confidence, and focus.

The goal of the Basic Program is to orient and introduce students who are new to the martial arts who haven’t decided if they are ready to make the commitment to become a Black Belt someday.

What Other Members Are Saying:

Star Martial Arts is amazing. They include both family and school in the students' martial arts education. We started seeing improvement in just one week and are seeing a dramatic improvement in 3 weeks. Not to mention the fact that WE are learning how to discipline in a positive manner. signing our 10 year old up was the best decision we ever made.

I had the pleasure of observing Mr. and Mrs. Birky in action when they began the martial arts program at our school.  I was so intrigued and pleased to see the manner in which they focused on the issue of respect ... respect for one another and one’s self. Through dialogue and martial arts techniques, I think the message of respect, following directions, listening, focusing, working hard was delivered well to the students, and it was something they practiced while in the program. You would think with a large group of students, it could become difficult to keep attention and good behavior, but Mr. and Mrs. Birky were able to do so, and is something I think would be beneficial for any teacher to observe to obtain some ideas on classroom behavior management techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your first class. One of our instructors will call you, or you may call the school directly.

Absolutely not. Although they will learn cool martial arts and self-defense moves, your child will learn how to AVOID fights, not pick them.

Our Teen & Adults Martial Arts program is for ages 14 & up.

Classes are divided by age and experience levels.  STAR provides 5-7 options for each student group throughout the week, Monday through Friday in the afternoons and evenings.  Students are encouraged to attend twice per week.
