We are dedicated to enhancing our community by helping to support children and their families with Stranger Awareness, Saying No to Drugs Seminars, and developing all around good moral character.

The focus is always on FAMILY. It doesn’t matter if you want training for yourself, simply want to get fit, or are looking for a positive new outlet for your child’s wonderful energy – what we teach at Vitali Family Karate doesn’t just stay in our classes, it goes home with you and your family.

What you learn with us not only represents our school, but, it also becomes a part of how you represent yourself. So, we make sure the lessons are high quality, enriching, and delivered in a positive way.

Students find that they start to do better in all areas of their lives, and get so hooked that they just can’t wait to share all of their fun new moves with family and friends! Boosted confidence, better discipline, and respect are fostered in class too.

These positive benefits often spill over into:

Students often report the amazing feeling they get when they are a positive influence on their family and society. This is also a great way for your child to get exercise, learn to succeed, improve their social skills and most importantly have fun!

What Our Students Are Saying

"Rick Vitali has been much more than just a Karate instructor to my family. Rick was a teacher, mentor, guide and role model for my son and daughter for more than 10 years. They are now both incredible young adults, and Rick was a big part of that. He reinforced the lessons my wife and I taught at home—things like respect, courtesy, hard work at school, and discipline. He is a trustworthy and honorable man. You will not find a finer person to help guide your child through not just martial arts and physical fitness, but life as well."

-Martin Hill


"Great karate school with a great instructor! If you are looking to boost your child's confidence and make them aware of their surroundings, Mr. Rick teaches them about stranger danger and how to protect themselves. Every Child needs this in today's society."
