Our family has been coming to Karate International for over 5 years now. It was the best decision we ever made for our boys. Shortly after, my husband started and all three are now black belts. Now I am taking karate, as well. KI has a great family atmosphere in a controlled environment that encourages you to want to come to class to learn and grow. No show-boating here, safety is always #1. There is an abundance of high level knowledge at the Raleigh dojo and every instructor goes above and beyond to help. There are several arts they teach. There is a reason they have been in business as long as they have. And that is because for them it's not a business but a passion and it shows in everything and everyone at KI. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

The best family martial arts school I've ever seen. Something for everybody. The skill level really shows that they are a 40+ year school. And they have multiple martial arts, which is rare.

This is a wonderful place for my whole family. My sons 11, 9, and 6 are all on the path to Black Belt. Even their old man is giving it a try...

I can't say enough good things about Karate International. They know how to work with children in a way that they learn proper form and technique while balancing lessons in character and integrity, all without taking out the fun. Any day, you can hear giggles from the little samurai class as they keep children enthused about karate. My son comes many times each week, and never tires of coming, and looks forward to progressing.

In addition to being child-friendly, they are parent-friendly and have done everything they could to make the parent wait comfortable and productive including parent exercise equipment, coffee, a seating area to watch classes, Wi-Fi and a charging station for mobile devices. It's the little things that say to us we are valued here. We are here to stay.

I have watched in awe as my son has become focused, disciplined, and confident during his journey to black belt. I now see him teaching and giving back to others. KI has been life-changing for him. I can’t say enough great things about this program, the instructors, and the community. If you’re thinking about starting karate, you’ve found the perfect place!

Every student is treated with attention and care, the staff and owners are extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and hold high standards for the students. It is a delight to come and get a great workout while building character and respect through the discipline of karate. We cannot think of a better option for our middle school son!

How we are handling the Flu and Coronavirus

How we are handling the Flu and Coronavirus
Since we are all beginning to get a bit more information about the spread of viruses that are making their way around our country, we thought we would address how we handle your safety in our dojo.


What we are doing to protect you:
We have our facility cleaned every night after classes. This includes disinfection of all contact surfaces including, but not limited to, all bathroom surfaces, our floors, mats, water fountain, door handles counter tops and shared use equipment.

Our instructors are also diligent about using hand sanitizer often and washing their hands between classes. We are trying to teach our students without actually touching their hands or faces. This is not much different from our normal method of instruction but just serves as a reminder that we need to be more vigilant, right now. As you all know, the martial arts are contact sports. We work with partners and we can’t avoid contact all together.

Our front office staff is doing additional wipe downs of the surfaces in the lobby.

What you can do to help:
We would like to remind our adult students to try not to touch your face and then work with another student. We recommend you wash your hands before and after class. Parents, it would be helpful if you teach these guidelines to your children as well.

As you know, during Apple Day, we always instruct students to go wash their hands after class before coming over to the food table. This is likely more important than ever, now. So, please help us out by doing this voluntarily and by asking your children to do it as well.

We highly recommend that you wipe down your sparring gear after every time you use it. You are welcome to use our Clorox wipes, but a simple disinfectant solution at home is probably best.

Adults who use our weight equipment, please help us out by grabbing a clorox wipe and wiping down equipment you have used afterwards. We do also clean it daily, but your help will be greatly appreciated.

If any student has a runny nose, sore throat or cough, we respectfully ask that you stay out of classes. We hope you already know that a fever means you need rest, not workouts. Asking you to stay out of classes is counter intuitive for us. We do our best to get you into class as often as possible. But right now, the best thing for all of us is to respect our community.

If we help keep each other well, we will get past this Cold and Flu season with success and will return to less vigilant germ watching!
