Personal Thoughts

  • “The biggest obstacle in life is yourself. Overcome it, and you will achieve the greatest accomplishment of all.”—Art Beins
  • “Take care of your health, work hard, take care of your family, play hard, and always give people more than they expect.”—Art Beins


“ABK has been such a phenomenal resource for our family. My son’s focus and attention have improved significantly since joining ABK a year ago. This has led to noticeable changes in his attentiveness and discipline in other areas, including improved success at school. Prior to involvement in ABK, my son’s main interests were TV and video games. He now has the focus and discipline to perform more effectively in team sports. ABK promotes overall wellness and strong healthy habits. The staff is so attentive to the student’s needs and abilities. In an age where children admire their role models for all the wrong reasons, Master Beams, Sensei Nunno, Sensei Ferguson and Miss Keller will teach your kids to aim high, give their best, respect themselves and others. The school motto says it allbelieve and achieve. Twice a week, I pass at least a half dozen other Karate schools on my way to ABK. We’ve tried others – ABK is by far the best.”
