Why?  “Child-Parent” bonding provides a unique sense of security that fosters self esteem. The activities will help your little one grow and flourish. The mission of the course is to help educate and empower new parents through these family bonding activities. Children will be stimulated through music, movement, and art.  The kids will also build self-confidence and self-esteem through innovative martial arts games and instruction.

The Allegheny Shotokan “Viola Karate” Martial Arts school is a pillar of the community, mentoring thousands of children over 50 years.  The school was established by William Viola Sr., a retired public school teacher serving over 30 years at the East Allegheny School District.  Viola’s son, Bill Viola Jr., now serves as director of Kumite Classic Entertainment.

Each class is 45 minutes and orchestrated to be fun an for infants as they are stimulated through music and age-appropriate activities.
