ACTIVSTARS Karate Program: Developing life skills for youth… since 1985 ACTIVSTARS has been one of the leaders in creating the highest quality youth programs at an affordable cost. ACTIVSTARS has developed one of the most comprehensive youth karate programs in the U.S., starting with highly trained instructors. Our programs are designed to keep kids safe with a system purposefully created for children and teens. We incorporate effective self-defense techniques together with lessons in safety awareness, abduction prevention, and anti-bullying.

SAFEShield: At ACTIVSTARS, we recognized that our students needed a specific program to help them understand the way the world has changed, and it's a big help for their parents too. So, we took existing safety practices and have developed our own unique program called the SAFE (Safety Awareness for Everyone) Shield.

SAFEShield builds on practices from the A-Z Abduction Prevention Program to teach kids the best methods and skills to protect them from unforeseen dangers. Our techniques include identifying safe or dangerous areas, potentially threatening behaviors, and ways a child can say "no" or ask for assistance.

ACTIVSTARS Anti-Bullying Program: To protect our students everywhere, we have also created the ACTIVSTARS Anti-Bullying Program.

This program prepares our students mentally by creating the "Mind of a Black Belt." Lessons and instructions effectively teach our students to better prepare and handle a verbal attack from a bully. They learn how to identify these threats, respond, and to be resilient in the face of such challenges.

STARS BEYOND THE CLASSROOM: Dangers can happen in almost any location, so students must be prepared to respond in and out of the classroom.

ACTIVSTARS students are taught awareness habits to keep them safe and secure. This training adapts each semester, and your child's specific instruction will likely include location information as well. We allow students to ask questions and engage with instructors, giving them the specific tools they will need.

Some of the topics we cover include:

  • Learning your environment
  • Safety measures and steps to take against drugs
  • Understanding and avoiding gangs
  • Water and fire safety
  • How to respect others who are different
  • Performing well in school under a variety of pressures
  • Why it is important to obey parents
  • And the benefits of being a good citizen

Students will have opportunities to demonstrate knowledge in these areas and earn ribbons for their efforts. Many parents have found these programs to be beneficial for their child's development, improving social interactions, and academic performance.

ACTIVSTARS MERCHANDISE: ACTIVSTARS merchandise is purchased at wholesale prices, and the savings are passed on to you. All merchandise is ONLY available for purchase online or at scheduled events.

Students are encouraged to have a karate uniform (gi), which provides comfort and freedom of movement. White & Yellow Belts can purchase the beginner ACTIVSTARS Gi/uniform. Green-Blue Belt students may upgrade their uniforms to the intermediate Gi/uniform. Advanced students Purple Belts & above may purchase the advanced Gi/uniform. All ACTIVSTARS Gis are quality middleweight uniforms!
