Besides teaching the art of self-defense in a Christian environment, the program helps to build self-esteem and confidence, as well as develop and improve self-discipline, strength, coordination and overall physical fitness. We have seen great improvement in these areas in our students that have stuck with the program through black belt. For some it has changed their attitude or behavior, for others it has given them great self discipline or encouragement, and others have experienced a great transformation of their physical being, loosing 50, 75, or 100 and more punds of excess weight. Whatever you are looking for our karate program can help you get there.
Over the last 14 years the program has expanded beyond the wall of this church to involve other churches and locations. We have grown from the initial six students to nearly 300. Members of the karate team have presented the Bully Awareness Program to local elementary schools. Over 3,000 students have seen this presentation.
The program has also been involved with Reaching America’s Youth (RAY) ministry, which reaches out to confined youth, by going in to the correctional facilities and witnessing to them. Trips have included the Youth Correctional Facility in Brownwood, Texas and a facility in College Station.
The Colonial Hills Karate Program also has a great and dynamic demonstration team that enjoys presenting the gospel in a refreshing new manner…with a karate spin of course. If you are looking for a new way to present the gospel message to your church, youth group, or organization ask us about this unique opportunity!
Colonial hills Karate has also been involved in helping to send over 10 karate students on mission trips to 6 different countries, some of these students traveling on multiple trips. Missions work is an active and encouraged portion of our karate program.
