Self Defense and Karate

Karate and Self-Defense Classes for Adults

Bringing Karate Back To What It Used To Be

Steel City has a long history of teaching Karate to adults for self-defense, physical conditioning, and pure enjoyment.

Unlike many schools and franchises, our Karate classes are not kata or form-based and do not focus on self-defense scenarios from 400 years ago.  Instead, our classes focus on practical, modern day self-defense techniques that our students confidently can use “when reality strikes.”  A number of our students are full time police officers who do not have the time or interest in learning pretty, theoretical self-defense techniques that do not work in real life.

Our classes are also a great source of physical conditioning and we have seen the long-term positive effects that this training imparts.  You will find yourself thinner, stronger, and more energetic than the people around you of your age group.  Our motto is “do the best you can with the body you have.”  Not everyone who walks in the door is a budding Jackie Chan, but we will strive to have you reach your personal best.

Finally, our students train at Steel City for pure enjoyment.  Our new facility is clean, spacious, and well lit.  Steel City instructors and classes are positive and upbeat, and we provide a healthy, supportive environment for adult students.  Our best proof of success is the warm smiles we see on our students at the end of class.

If you’re considering an adult Karate class, we hope that you stop by and give Steel City a try!
