A Chat with Collette’s Kajukenbo Karate
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our focus is on your child. There is no sideline, no cutting. Every kid plays. And while playing, you will see a boost in confidence. Your child will develop friendships and build a foundation of moral character all while learning applicable skills in martial arts.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Why wait? Start your pride and joy as early as 4 years old.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My wife and I saw a need for an after-school activity for the kids in the neighborhood we lived in. We converted our garage into a training room, raised the front rolling door, and took in anyone who wanted to learn. Our students began to excel in academics, home life, and overall confidence.
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love it when I see a shy, underachieving child come into our academy and over the following months, we actually see a marked improvement in overall well being. If I didn’t have to pay the bills for the school, it would be free to all. That’s how much we love doing it.
