Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Can I try Class before I sign up?

    Yes! Our No Obligation Trial really is "No Obligation". We want you to be sure that what we offer and what you need are congruent. If so, you are welcome to become a member after your trial is up.

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!


What Our Members Have To Say

We think our Programs ROCK! But what about actual Members?

My husband and I are more than happy to have our son be a part of such an amazing family oriented place! Our son has matured into such an amazing well rounded young individual. Our son is 7 and has ADHD. Our provider suggested to place him in karate, not only has it help tame his attention it's given him such self control! He's such a respectful gentleman and truly loves being in karate. He feels he has purpose and has something to look forward to call his own achievements every time he earns a belt. We can't thank the Harriday family enough! We highly recommend "Harriday's Karate and Fitness"!

Amanda Seek Lozinski

We are big fans of Harriday's Karate and fitness. My son Rahsaan's confidence, discipline, and efforts at school have all improved significantly since we enrolled him at the school. All of the Sensei's show tremendous patience and skills with teaching kids of all ages and backgrounds. We are so happy we've found the school, and look forward Sensei Harriday guiding our son to the level of Blackbelt!

Christopher Mills

I cannot say enough great things about Harriday's Karate and Fitness. My son has been studying here since 2010 and is still going strong. Harriday's is a family owned and run business, but they are more than a business they are like family to me. Karate has helped to teach my son focus and self control and so much more. I started karate 2 years ago and haven't stopped since. It has helped me not only physically, but mentally as well. It has also increased my self confidence and I see a difference in my work life as a result. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for my son and I.
