Beginning Karate

TUESDAYS - ALL karate classes are for ages 7 and up.


11:00 - Beginning - (White - Orange).

This class is intended for beginning students (white, yellow, gold and orange belts). New students will learn the fundamentals of American karate, and returning students will progress in their karate skills. Regular belt tests will be offered. 

Our karate program has been offered for the whole 16
 years that Koinos has been in existence. It is a well-respected and very competitive program. Koinos Karate is active in the martial arts community, and we compete in many tournaments. 

Koinos Karate is coordinated by Stephen Starnes, who is a 9th degree black belt in American Karate. We partner with Mr. Starnes' karate studio in Bridgeport and do most of our belt tests there. Everything we do in Koinos Karate is focused on Jesus Christ, and the respect and discipline that is taught is based on a Biblical foundation. Mr. Starnes is a member of the Martial Arts Hall of Fame and is widely respected in the karate community!

Mr. Starnes has many skilled advanced belt students who help him teach the classes, which provides us with a low student-to-teacher ratio.
The initial uniform cost is approximately $40.00. Uniforms are ordered after the first 30 days of class. Belt test costs vary and information about that will be provided to students in class. Some of our belt tests at the beginning level are offered during class at Koinos.  

Tuition is $50.00 per month for the first hourly class (discounted rate for your 2nd and subsequent classes). Belt testing fee schedule will be provided at the time of registration.

Instructor: Master Stephen Starnes
