A Chat with Arizona Family Karate Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We’ve been open over 20 years. We start teaching children at the age of 3. We are home to over 200 students with a schedule boasting almost 50 classes per week.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
We start children at the age of 3 and [we can teach] adults up to 100.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Karate teaches us all self-discipline, courage, modesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, and indomitable spirit. It also helps children with respect problems, focus issues, coordination, and [issues] working with others. It’s an amazing physical activity that improves the lives of everyone who becomes involved in it.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the students become focused, respectful, hard-working, goal-oriented, and really awesome people; especially the children who start out in life having a rough time. It’s incredibly rewarding.
