There are many reasons why someone may get bored from training. Students who are not being challenged or are held back in order to keep the large group class progressing at the same rate will often suffer from boredom.
When a student feels stuck due to lack of progress, they are likely to lose interest and quit. A concise curriculum with clear requirements will help students understand expectations and progress at their own individual pace.
Not knowing how you are doing, what you need to do to improve or advance can be frustrating. When expectations are not clearly communicated, frustration and misunderstandings can lead to unnecessary quitting.
Martial Arts studios are communities. Students and instructors respect one another and genuinely enjoy being around each other. Those students who don't fit into the group will feel like outsiders that don't belong. Connection and belonging to something are two of our core needs as human beings.
Fear can be due to one of many different factors: getting injured due to unsafe teaching practices, getting sick due to lack of cleanliness, having to train with partners that lack control, feeling embarrassed because you are asked to do something you don't know how to do.
Do these reasons sound familiar?
I'm here to tell you that there is a way to eliminate ALL of these reasons and still receive quality, professional karate instruction

Clear, concise curriculum and requirements – know what to do and what is required to advance
Safe, effective, and efficient lessons – no fluff, just the essential techniques
Real time feedback – progress checks, tests, and live feedback ensure you stay on track and get your questions answered
Be part of a studio – you’re not just learning from a video, you’re a karate student with an instructor and a member of a professional studio that has live and virtual training
Unlike other online martial arts programs that simply show techniques then say "go", Karate Essentials takes you through the techniques, drills them, and offers students feedback so they can improve.
In the first 5 lessons of the course, you learn all of the basic techniques: kicks, punches, stances, blocks, forms, grabs, and sparring. At the completion of the lessons you have a mini checkpoint test before moving to the next phase.
In the second set of 5 lessons you will further practice and refine the techniques you learned in the first phase. At the completion of this phase you will have another checkpoint to pass prior to moving on to the next phase.
The next set of 5 lessons will challenge your knowledge of the techniques you've learned in the previous phases. By doing things differently, you will find out how well you know the material and identify weak areas. Following this phase will be the final checkpoint prior to testing.
In the final phase of the program, you will review all the material from the course and prepare for rank promotion testing through practice tests and live sessions.
When you purchase Karate Essentials, you will have access to all the tools you need to learn and excel in martial arts. Our proven process provides a step-by-step plan for how to learn and progress through the ranks, so you'll never wonder what your next step should be.
16 FOLLOW ALONG LESSONS
Each level of Karate Essentials consists of 16 follow along lessons that are 25-45 minutes long. These lessons teach the entire beginner curriculum over the course of 6 levels. Basic kicks, punches, blocks, stances are taught as well as self-defense/sparring techniques and basic forms. You can repeat the lessons as many times as you want until you're comfortable!
WEEKLY LIVE VIRTUAL CHECK IN LESSONS
Pre-recorded lessons have many great benefits but the one area they are seriously lacking in is the ability for the instructor to provide feedback. That is why there is a weekly live training session with Master Elmore, the creator of Karate Essentials, where you get to ask questions and get some feedback on how you are progressing.
CHECKPOINTS, TRACKING, AND TESTS
After every 5 lessons there is a mini test called a checkpoint. This is a self-evaluation that you use to assess how well you are progressing. Once you feel comfortable with the checkpoint you move on to the next phase of lessons. Students will also have a tracking sheet to keep track of their class attendance and checkpoint progress. At the end of the course, students have the opportunity to take a live rank test with Master Elmore. Upon completion of the test, students will receive a thorough report explaining what they are doing well and what they need to improve on. If the student successfully passes the test, they will be awarded an official belt rank and certificate.
COMPLETE STUDENT MANUAL
One of the differences between traditional karate and other martial arts is that in a traditional karate studio, students learn history, terminology, and philosophy of the art as well. That is why we have included the complete student manual that provides all of the details students in our live studio training classes receive.
BONUS - KARATE ESSENTIALS QUICK START
As a special bonus, if you purchase Karate Essentials Level 1 during the presale period, you will also get our Karate Essentials - Quick Start Program which you can start immediately. This program will give you an introductory lesson and written materials to review so you can hit the ground running when the full course is available.
When people ask me why I started karate, I always tell them "I don't know, I was only 8 years old!" I did a lot of different activities when I was a kid and karate just stuck...for over 30 years now.
Karate has helped me deal with being bullied in school, the self-discipline to earn a graduate degree in aerospace engineering, the dedication to teach karate 25 hours per week driving an hour each way while in college, and the confidence to quit my high paying corporate job to become a full-time karate teacher.
My goal now is to share my passion with as many people as I can, especially those who do not have access to quality martial arts instruction due to finances, health concerns, physical limitations, or lack of confidence, so they can reap the many benefits I have been fortunate enough to experience in martial arts.
Let's be honest. You don't know me, I don't know you.
Why should you trust me when there are so many other online martial arts programs out there that make promises they can't deliver on?
We are so confident you will be successful in our program that if after completing the first 5 lessons and checkpoint, you are not satisfied we will give you a full refund.
Say goodbye to...
In each Level, you will receive 16 easy to follow lessons that are 25-45 minutes long each. After every 5 lessons there is a checkpoint where you test out what you've learned. At the end of the 16 lessons there is a practice test that will prepare you to take the rank test if you choose to.
The entire Beginner curriculum consists of 6 Level courses. Intermediate and Advanced Levels are in the works.
Lastly, you get the entire student manual which gives you all the background information on our martial art.
In Karate Essentials - Beginner Level 1 you'll learn:
This is a special presale of Karate Essentials the complete course will be available on January 3rd, 2022. You will receive an email notification reminding you when it is available.

Everybody learns differently. Some people prefer online training while others prefer large group classes or private lessons. There are so many different martial arts out there that teach different things. Not every martial art is right for everyone.
The only way you'll know for sure is if you give it a try!
Learning something at home, online is tough. It takes self-discipline and motivation. Luckily there are ways to help with this. 1) get a training partner, 2) stick to a routine or set schedule, 3) set a goal, 4) connect with others in Karate Essentials on our social media groups.
I also offer virtual private lessons and weekly virtual group check in classes!
If you continue with the Karate Essentials program you will have the opportunity to do a virtual rank test and earn actual karate rank certificates and belts. After completing each level course, you will be given details as to what is on the test and information about how to do it.
Testing is optional though! You can continue taking Karate Essentials courses without ever taking a rank promotion test.
Karate Essentials is a continuous, ongoing karate training program, just like training at a live studio. After Level 1, you can either purchase the next level course or purchase a monthly membership and access every course we offer.
