No gimmicks, No up-sell, Just KARATE


Why Choose Clark's For The Best In Self Defense?

Clark's Self Defense was established in 1999 by Derrick Clark.  Since our opening, our goal has always been to provide a place for people of all ages to learn practical self defense in a safe and friendly environment.  We believe that everyone, regardless of their age and abilities should be able to learn how to defend themselves. 

Our studios provide basic to advanced martial arts instructions.  Our students range from white belt, a beginner, to advanced black belts.  We believe that each student needs to earn their rank by attending classes and working hard.  Because each student learns at a different pace, the amount of time between belts will vary between students.  We never put a student on a test unless that student is ready. 

We offer one program to our students.  Our program is designed to provide a full spectrum martial arts training.  We include empty hand techniques, weapon training, pressure point training, grappling, instructor training, and board breaking in our classes without the need to sign up for these programs individually at an added cost.    

Here are a few more reasons why our studios stand out from the rest:

- There is no joining fee or sign up fee. 

- There are no long term contracts.  Our membership is on a month to month basis.

- We offer unlimited classes during the month.

- Our schedule is very flexible with many classes to chose from.
