Why I Love Karate International of West Raleigh


Why I Love Karate International of West Raleigh

By Charlotte Moore, age 10


Karate International of West Raleigh is a great way to get in shape, have fun, make friends, and learn important life lessons, all at the same time!  The karate teachers (senseis) are really nice, you can make a best friend there (I know I did!) and it gets your heart pumping!

Types of Classes

If you (or your child) are ages 3-5, you can join the Little Samurai class. It’s a fun and educational way to practice and learn karate. If you or your child are ages 6-12, join the kids/family class! It’s a little like the Little Samurai class, but more grown up. If you’re 12 or older, you can join the adult and teen classes. It’s a lot more mature.

Message of the Week 

The life lessons you learn are different each week. That’s why they call it “Message of the Week”! There are lessons like bully prevention, smart goals, and more!


Activities include:

  • Katas
  • Tournaments
  • Self-Defense
  • Summer Camp
  • Sparring
  • Promotion Ceremonies
  • Parties and Family Nights
  • Message of the Week

“It was the best party EVER!” said a birthday boy, age 6.
