We are Curran's Karate

What We Do

My name is Sensei Ron Curran, head of Curran’s Karate.  I’ve been involved in Martial Arts since I was ten years old and started teaching as an assistant instructor when I was thirteen.  I am on an unstoppable mission to help the children of our community achieve academic success, gain confidence, increase their self-esteem, avoid peer pressure, stay fit, and live a healthy lifestyle.

I have a secret to share with you.  I’ve already done it and I continue to do it everyday with kids just like yours and we can do it for your child.  Imagine how you will feel when your child becomes unstoppable at achieving all of the positive things life has to offer and unstoppable at avoiding all of the negative things life has to offer.  With our exclusive Curran’s Karate program not only will your child receive all of the benefits that I just spoke about and more from our program, they will love doing it.



We offer a wide variety of programs

Tiny Tigers

Kids Classes

Family Training

Teen Classes

Adult Classes


We specialize in 3-7 year olds.


Our Kids Classes develop habits that will last a lifetime.


Our Adult Classes start at 15 and go up to 100.  We currently have many students training in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s.  You are never too old to try something new, or perhaps pick up something that you may have started when you were younger.  Some of our more intense training sessions have burnt up to 1100 calories in an hour.  Our classes are a great way to get in shape, while learning something new.


Field Trips at Curran’s Karate are a great way to engage your class in a fun activity that focuses on fitness, respect, literacy, and achievement.

Each one of our field trips is custom designed to focus on what you are learning about in your classroom.  These topics can range from Citizenship, Academic Focus (in class awards for you to give to your students), Fairness, Healthy Eating, and Empathy.  We create a curriculum that is congruent with what you are teaching so that the students can blend the link between physical accomplishment and mental accomplishment.
