USA KARATE Owner

Hi, I’m Robby Beard.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I began my martial arts journey at age 7 and the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to someday own my own school and when I opened USA karate in Bartlett in 1996, I made a commitment to our community in Bartlett to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building the confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.

Over the years, I merged my experience as a former police office in Memphis and a lifelong martial artist and create some community programs that have been featured in many magazines and local news, such as our Active Shooter workshops, Stranger Danger and Anti bully programs. These are programs that we include in both our children and adult curriculum, which makes joining our martial arts school a really exciting experience that always changes and never gets boring for our members! 

I’m very proud of our programs and would love a chance to train you and / or your child at USA Karate! Please check out our trial offers and don’t hesitate to ask questions! See you on the mat!

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at USA KARATE are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

WHAT IS KARATE

Karate is the style of martial arts practiced by USA KARATE students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!

One more reason you will love martial arts at USA KARATE!
