Karate, for many people, conjures up images of pivot kicks, “my hand is a deadly weapon”, and brick-breaking or other shows of martial arts power or strength. But for Grant Campbell, USA Karate’s founder, that’s like saying modern art is nothing but throwing paint at a canvas. That’s not it at all!
“USA Karate elevates Karate to a new level, and is dedicated to transforming the way people understand and view Karate.”
Welcome to USA Karate, where Karate isn’t just self-defense training (although it is that), but a philosophy, an art, and a way of life.
USA Karate is the place where classical Karate and modern Sport Karate meet. At USA Karate, we absorb the latest developments in modern sports science, while never forgetting that Karate in its truest form is a path to physical and mental self-discovery. Our martial arts programs & classes in Hollywood, Florida & New York’s Upper West Side elevate Karate to a new level, and is dedicated to transforming the way people understand and view Karate.
We provide a fun, positive, but serious atmosphere, where beginners are nurtured, and welcomed into a supportive community that wants you to succeed.
The USA Karate method is based on the body’s natural biomechanics. We don’t just show you the moves, we make sure you understand how they’re made. Like classical ballet training, we emphasize strict adherence to form—“The right way from the first day”.
We even have a different take on levels than the basic “Beginner/Advanced”. Our adult program consists of five “layers”, each of which contains three or four steps. We like that word better—it’s about adding on, not just moving ahead. The small size of our classes assures you get individual attention, while our flexible schedule assures you can come to them.
Most importantly, we want you to know that it doesn’t matter what kind of shape you’re in, or how much Karate training you’ve had. Training at Grant Campbell’s USA Karate will offer you a physical training regimen that addresses your personal concerns, and encourages a complete balance between mind, body, and spirit. Our staff is carefully selected and specially trained to bring out the best in you or your child.
At our new facility, you can look forward to us developing you to be a better you through either our General Martial Arts Training Program or with our Classical Martial Arts Training.
