Instruction & Fees
History of Dojo



Satori Karate is a Great and Fun Place for Kids!
We love teaching kids, and kids love CuongNhu because it’s energetic and fun! Senior instructors Joe Varady and Madeline Crouse each hold Masters degrees in Elementary Education and have extensive experience as classroom teachers, so you know students will be encouraged and taught using the safest practices and best teaching methodologies. Let our qualified and supportive instructors introduce your child to the wonderful world of the martial arts.

Little Dragons class: (ages 6 -10) Our youngest students learn about traditional martial arts values such as non-violence, respect, cooperation, and helping others while practicing fun, safe, age-appropriate skills.

Youth class: (ages 11 and up) Classes are composed of whole group warm-ups followed by small group instruction in basic technique, kata, and self defense in addition to instruction in the traditional martial arts values mentioned above.

You will enjoy seeing your child learn and grow as they:
• Build confidence and self-esteem through mastery of physical skills.
• Develop social skills by making new friends and learning teamwork.
• Improve their coordination, balance, attention and self-discipline.
• Start a lifelong habit of fitness and health through exercise.
• Gain the skill and composure to protect themselves in threatening situations.
• Did we mention how much fun it is?

We offer classes for all school-aged children and adults. Get the whole family involved!


We serve adults and children in an integrated, family atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to work hard and strive for their personal best!
