About Us

In the UTA traditional program we offer our separate Lil’ Dragon, child and adult classes as well as family classes. With each class having a different approach toward the training, geared toward their needs. The child’s classes are uniquely designed to develop positive character in a fun yet disciplined environment all while teaching practical self-defense. The adult program offers an environment where you will learn realistic self-defense skills and you will learn to think and react in a way that will give you the ability and confidence to realize what you are truly capable of achieving. Family classes offer a chance for moms and dads to enjoy the benefits of UTA Karate training together.
