Frequently Asked Questions
Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.
Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.
Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.
In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Good people, and a great way to get fit. Highly recommend it for anyone regardless of you current fitness level.
The last writer un-nerved me. This school is a great way to introduce Karate to everyone any age over 3yrs. My Granddaughter (12) has been going for 3 years. She was really kind of shy, slow in school work etc. Karate does what is says. Knowledge, discipline, respect, courage, etc. Just come anytime and check them out. The students are given certificates for friends to come and try a month of lessons for $000.00, and a free uniform to keep no matter their decision. They can do this because once the child tries it they keep coming. Now, Honestly not all do. It is not for everyone for what ever reason. But most of them make some really great lifelong friends and a sport that may someday save them from attacks by anyone. My other granddaughter (5) started when she was 3. I am glad they both had this opportunity. It's really not all that expensive either. Not for what they are getting back from it.
I highly, very highly recommend Mentor Karate Institute!
John and I cannot say enough good things about the Karate Institute of Mentor. From the moment we started three months ago with our daughter in the Lil Dragons program, kids ages 3-4 yrs old, we have been welcomed every day by smiling faces and warm hellos. All of the Sensei's go out of their way to say hello and give High Five's when they pass by. But the thing that has impressed us most of all are the other students, the older kids in particular. They make sure that our daughter understands how to do the exercises, they keep an eye on her when she's in a big group and take time to make sure she does her best at every skill. She loves working with the "Big Kids" as she calls them and even when we practice at home, she likes to pretend that she's one of them.
We have been in other situations where we felt like outsiders but at the Karate Institute of Mentor you feel like family from day one. Everyone knows your name and your child's name and genuinely is interested in their success. We are so happy that we've found the Karate Institute of Mentor and would recommend them to anyone who wants to have their child grow both physically and mentally in a happy environment. Thank you to the owners Sensei Dennis and Sensei Mercedes Janes as well as all of my daughters other sensei's, Sensei Kelly and Sensei Linda Thomas, who work so hard every day to make the Dojo what it is today. And a big thank you to the other students who have truly surpassed our expectations with their leadership abilities and we look forward to many more years with our karate family!
Great fun and fitness for the whole family!
