Basic membership allows you to participate in any class provided you meet the necessary age/maturity and/or rank requirements for that level of training. You may attend many as days a week as you like.
Instruction and ranking up to and including high dan (black belt) grading is offered. Youth ranks are valued at the same high degree as our adults but tempered for the age of the child. Youth ranking carries over into adult ranking as the student grows. Ranks earned as a youth are not repeated at adulthood as is the practice in some other martial arts schools. For new students from other schools, we do allow you to retain your rank earned.
Karate students will be required to wear white karate-gi or optional summer uniform consisting of white karate-gi pants with a black Hickey Karate Center T-shirt.
When you are eligible for free-fighting class, certain gear will be required. We do not permit contact while free fighting regardless of the gear worn. Shin pads with instep protection are also suggested.
