tax. Order forms are available at the do jang under the calendars.

As a reminder, all YELLOW Belts and up are REQUIRED to have sparring gear. It is strongly encouraged for WHITE Belts to purchase it as well. Like any sport, it is best to have your own equipment. We try to keep our sparring gear prices affordable for our students.

Little Ninjas

We have openings for our Little Ninjas class!

Central Karate Louisiana offers Little Ninja classes for children ages 4-6

Classes are Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00-6:30. Classes are limited to no more than 15 students per class!

Students in Little Ninjas practice hand/eye coordination, learn thru exercise and games, img_2484and learn the basics of Tang Soo Do which will help them succeed in the Traditional Program. Little Ninjas is specially designed with smaller children in mind. Classes are 30 minutes packed with constant movement paired with listening drills and Martial Arts skills.

Little Ninjas was designed for children to learn and progress at their own pace so no one gets left behind. As Little Ninjas learn the required skills they progress through a specially designed belt system that is is rewarding and engaging. Once Little Ninjas reach Little Ninja Green Belt, they are eligible to move into the Traditional Program.

If you would like to schedule a date to come in for a free class or would like more information regarding our Little Ninjas Program, please give us a call at 261-6326 or e-mail us at centralkaratela@gmail.com

A quick reminder regarding uniforms (do boks). We have noticed a lot of dirty and stained uniforms lately. Please be sure to make sure uniforms are neat and free of stains. New uniforms are always available at the do jang for purchase. Uniforms are only to be worn to and from class. ITF etiquette calls for only the pants to be worn to and from class and the top and belt put on upon entering the school. As a reminder, we have a changing room that students may use as needed. ALL STUDENTS need to get their patches on their uniforms ASAP. Remember they are not iron on. With the exception of White Belts, every student should have an ITF patch as well as the Flag patch on their uniform at all times. If you need to purchase patches, please see Mrs. Lauren. STUDENTS WITHOUT PATCHES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRE TEST OR TEST!


UNIFORMS SHOULD BE CLEAN, NEAT, AND FREE OF STAINS AT ALL TIMES!!

White Belt Students will not have any patches on their uniforms.

Green & Red Belt Students are required to have the ITF patch & Flag patches on their uniforms at times. Green & Red Belt Students are also required to have lapel trim on their uniforms. Ribbon is available at the do jang upon request.

Tang Soo!

Tang Soo Do Family

Central Karate family, We want to get a head start on helping our Tang Soo Do brothers and sisters in the Houston and surrounding areas. We will start collecting gift cards to Home Depot, Wal-Mart, and Target as well as cash gift cards and gift cards to places like subway, burger king, etc… If you’d prefer to give cash and us buy the gift cards, we can do that as well. Our Texas family was there for us during our time of need and now it’s time to return the favor.
