Karate Kids is our entry level program for kids aged 7 - 14 who wish to begin a martial arts program. This first year program has the purpose of teaching our traditional and fundamental skills.

Basic Karate teaches kicking, punching, blocking and strikes. Ju Jitsu teaches evasion tumbling falling and much more.

Karate - Literally, "open hand." is also a general term for Japanese-based striking-style martial arts. There are many different styles of Karate.

Pacific Coast Academy does not currently offer Karate as a specific art in the adult program, however, as a loose description of our children's program, "Karate" is appropriate. Kids at Pacific Coast Academy learn much more than conventional karate skills.


After Karate kids our young martial artists are elevated to our hallmark black belt club program. This is a comprehensive program that cannot be found anywhere else. As student progress to learn Kenpo Ju Jitsu and are exposed to Danzan Ryu Ju Jitsu, Kumite style sparring and Eskrima.

Graduates of the black belt club can continue to grow in the advanced childrens classes. With a strong basis in physical skills, movement and training discipline, Jokyu students spend three years learning the adult curriculum of Ken Ju Ryu - Kenpo Ju Jitsu and recieve an adult, Shodan 1st degree black belt from Shihan Russ Rhodes. In addition Jokyu training includes elements of Ju Jitsue and weapon arts.

As with all of our courses we pride ourselves in teaching excellence, personal attention, and tradition, while providing your child with the most complete and effective methods to reach their full potential.

Pacific Coast's instructors are personally selected, not only for their martial arts skills, but also for their ability to effectively communicate their knowledge and understanding to students of all ages.

Although our techniques are based on knowledge centuries old, our innovative application of that knowledge sets Pacific Coast Academy apart from the other schools.

At Pacific Coast Academy we not only teach our young students the percussion arts (kicking & punching), but we also include Ukime (falls & rolls) and Grappling (ground work).

We realize that each student possesses different physical abilities. Size and strength varies with each individual.  Therefore, once a student has acquired a strong foundation  in the basics, our program will enhance a child's personal physical capabilities and maximize their self-defense skills.

We teach our students using a basic philosophy of positive reinforcement to build Self Esteem, Confidence, Discipline, Positive Attitude and Values. There are many additional benefits that are gained by involving your child in a martial arts program.

Our unique method of training is fun and designed to:

  • Instill A Positive Attitude
  • Build Confidence & Self Esteem
  • Teach the Importance of Strong Values
  • Good Character
  • Promote the Desire to Learn
  • Improve Effort & Motivation
  • Improve Concentration
  • Teach Self Discipline
  • Instill Respect for Themselves & for Others

By embodying these principles in our Karate Kids program, we are helping young people deal with the many problems they face growing up in today's world, including drugs, peer pressure and gangs.
