Your Child's Dream Birthday Party.  Your Dream Birthday Experience.

They Get to Be a Ninja, You Get to Relax

Parties? At a Martial Arts School?

Hi, my name is Charles Harriday, owner of Harriday's Karate & Fitness in Columbia, MD. I want to clarify something: YES, we're a Martial Arts School. We normally teach Character Development, Self Defense Skills, and Life Lessons that transform young people into strong, self assured leaders.  But years and years ago, one of our life long students (the kind who's addicted to Martial arts, here everyday) asked if she could have her birthday at our school. We were honored to give it a shot. And let me tell you, that day, everyone found out that Martial Arts Birthday Parties are Awesome. 

Let me tell you why. In our regular classes, we've seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted. At our Birthday Parties, this translates into a much different feel than your typical "purchased" birthday party. On this page, I'll tell you a little about our parties, and if you think it might be right for your child, you can enter your email to get a full party package list (there are multiple options) and if you'd like, even schedule your party online. 

Set Up, Clean Up, Planning Activities, RSVPs, Booking a Location, and Still Making Sure Everyone has FUN?

Stressful, Right?

It seems like every year it's the same stress. Whether you're planning a birthday party at home or somewhere else, you face a MASSIVE amount of work.

The worst part is that just because you did all the work doesn't mean everyone has fun! There's NOTHING worse (at least for us) than planning, stressing, putting 100% of your energy into something and having people not enjoy it. Or worse, not appreciate it!

  • Invitations

    Purchasing (or making) invitations and making sure they actually look good? Not easy!

  • RSVPs

    If you don’t know how many people are coming, it’s pretty hard to be prepared!

  • Set Up

    It’s your child’s birthday, and you’re supposed to spend all day setting up? Like your life isn’t busy enough…

  • Clean Up

    If there’s anything worse than setting up, it’s cleaning up! Kids are not the cleanest things around.

  • Thank You Notes

    Keeping track of who brought what and making sure they’re acknowledged is near impossible for parents at a B-day party.

  • Actual FUN

    In the midst of all of the stress and preparation, it’s supposed to be FUN! Planning games, making sure all the kids will be happy, making sure all of the PARENTS are happy…not easy.


But There's a Better Way!

We've specifically designed our parties to help parents either avoid or easily conquer these issues. We've had family after family tell us that not only was our party the most fun their kids have ever had, it was also the easiest. And that's our goal!

Birthday Party Reviews

We Think It's Great, But What About Regular Parents?

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.

Our Parties are Martial Arts Parties

They'll Totally Love It

This isn't your average, run of the mill birthday party. In fact, your birthday child and their guests will actually get to learn REAL Martial Arts moves in a structured, safe environment. It's very, very cool.

Life Skills

At a Party?

Because we're a Martial Arts school, your child and their guests will be walking into a disciplined, structured, culture of success. Yes, we'll have a LOT of fun, but we'll be having fun BECAUSE the party has structure.

As much as kids want to think so, they don't actually have more fun running around like crazy. Our instructors know how to keep the kids engaged and excited, while making sure that they're not out of control (You've seen those crazy birthday parties where kids are just nuts? Not ours.)
