About Our School

Welcome to the USA Karate website! At USA Karate we are teaching students way more than kicks, punches, and self-defense. In addition to developing physical skills, at USA Karate we are committed to helping students develop a higher standard of character through our proprietary Character Development Program. From the first class to Black Belt and beyond, all students are enrolled in our Character Development Program where students learn valuable life lessons, lessons students won’t learn in any other classroom or activity! It is this unique combination of Martial Arts Training and Character Development that we believe creates the foundation for developing unshakeable self-confidence, exceptional self-discipline, black belt focus, improved coordination, increased fitness, and goal setting abilities to help you or your child achieve success in multiple aspects of life!

Karate is not just for kids! Many teens and adults enjoy the benefits of being in our program. Whether your goal is to lose weight, increase flexibility, improve balance, work on your cardiovascular fitness, be able to keep yourself safe, cross-training for other sports, or just to release stress, we have a program for you!

Our programs are designed for people of all ages and experience levels, from beginners, to advanced Black Belts, to instructor training. All classes (unlike most other activities) are taught by dedicated, professionally trained instructors in a space specifically designed for training in Martial Arts. Sign up today to give it a try! We hope to see you on the mat at USA Karate soon!

As parents, we know the challenges of raising confident, resilient, and respectful children in today’s society. As experienced business professionals we know the attributes required for a successful career. It is this dual perspective and experience that sets the foundation for the Martial Arts, Character Development, and Leadership Development Programs at USA Karate. While becoming a world-class kicker is cool and impressive, it pales in comparison to developing the self-motivation, discipline, self-awareness, self-control, and perseverance required to overcome life’s challenges and to achieve your goals and dreams in life. It this philosophy that guides the entire staff at USA Karate to provide a state-of-the-art program focused not only on the physical benefits, but more importantly the life-skills necessary to help you or your child reach your maximum potential in all aspects of life! USA Karate is the afterschool, school Where Leaders Are Formed!

Why Choose USA Karate?

Dedicated Professional Instructors Teaching Life Skills

Most other “activities” are often taught by volunteer coaches with a primary focus of developing the physical skills required to “win.” As a result, parents are frustrated to learn that these “activities” can damage a child’s self-esteem, rather that increase it. However, at USA Karate, teaching your children valuable life skills is our job! Our full-time, professionally trained staff teaches classes 6 days a week, with a curriculum focused on more than the physical skills. In addition to improving physical skills, our curriculum helps develop discipline, respect, self-control, and communication skills. We are the after school, school!

Educational Yet Fun!

The smile on our student’s faces both before and after class says it all. Not only do our students start to excel with their chores at home, getting better grades at school, being more aware of others perspective, and contributing to the community in a positive manner, they have fun doing it! Getting started is easy and FREE! Just fill out the form on this page to discover the benefits of our program for you and your family.

Sarah Prill

We joined karate during the pandemic to give the kids some exercise and try something new. We noticed that our son starting having tantrums and crying if he couldn't do something perfect on the first try. Then, he wanted to quit. Mr. Seme and Mrs. Johnson worked with him to teach him valuable life lessons. It's ok to not do it perfectly the first time around, and you have to practice. After regularly attending classes, our son now loves karate and just joined black belt leadership. Karate has boosted his confidence. We couldn't be prouder of his efforts!

My wife and I did not think our daughter Amelia would like going to karate. She had gone with our neighbor girl. She loves going to USA Karate & Yoga in Rosemount. The instructors Mr. Seme and Mrs. Johnson are very nice and very professional. They teach the kids to treat others with respect & just to be good kids overall. They teach the kids to focus not only in their class but in school and at home. My daughter proudly told me she used black belt focus in school the other day. Amelia sure is excelling in her karate skills thanks to the wonderful instructors!!

My grandson has been going to USA Karate for over a year. Yesterday, my grandson told me that Steve Seme was his hero! I asked, why? My grandson said, "because Steve helps me and makes me feel good about me! And, Steve makes him smile. I love it because the program gives my grandson self confidence, self of accomplishment and teaches us to not give up!!
