Karate A to Z is an innovative program, developed by Master Anthony Lerma in 2002, that teaches the basic techniques, stances and principles found in a wide range of martial arts.
While the vast majority of martial arts were at one time developed for and practiced by monks and soldiers, Karate A to Z was developed keeping in mind that the needs of children, both physically and emotionally, differ greatly from those of adults.
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.
