East Coast Karate & Aerobic Fitness Center

East Coast Karate Academy created Specialized Karate in 2009 and  has serviced over 100 children diagnosed with autism and other challenges. This non-contact program is a wonderful way for children to gain confidence, build self-esteem and make new friends. Class is conducted in a similar manner of all East Coast Karate Classes. Children wear a Gi (uniform) as they warm up, practice drills, learn Japanese terminology and participate in team skill building activities. Students work on social pragmatics, listening skills and following directions. Class size is small.  Six week sessions are ongoing. Classes are taught by Master Hopkins, advanced students and a special educator for the Lynn Public Schools. Call for more information!
