Karate A to Z is an innovative program, developed by Master Anthony Lerma in 2002, that teaches the basic movements, techniques and stances found in a wide range of martial arts, combined with the use of the alphabet.
While the vast majority of martial arts were at one time developed for and practiced by monks and soldiers, Karate A to Z was designed and developed specifically for the emotional and physical needs of young children. It incorporates martial arts skills such as focus, balance, strength, coordination, and self control, and provides students with an awareness of the sights and sounds of the alphabet. The result is a reading readiness program that is fun and helps children of all ages develop visual and phonetic familiarity with the alphabet, as well as teach them vocabulary for social growth and invaluable life skills.

The benefits of training result in improved:
mental focus
balance and coordination
core strength
character development
social growth
life skills: self accountability, self discipline, self esteem and self expression
