January 2023 Student of the Month 

It is with great pride that I present to you the very first AOK student of the month. 
We have the best students and now each month we will showcase one of them. 
The student of the month for January 2023 is Holly Adkins. She is not only a phenomenal student here but at her high school as well. 
She started with AOK over 2 years ago. She is helpful, kind, loyal, she will help any other student in need and has a no quit attitude. 
Please take a moment to congratulate Holly on her achievement. She is most deserving of this honor.


Congratulations to all the students who tested on August 20, 2022. They all worked so hard and it really showed in their success.

Customer Review 

It means so much when someone takes the time to say something positive. Here is a review we had to share.


“I cannot say enough good things about the Art of Karate. The owners take such pride in their establishment. I have been attending Heidi’s kickboxing for over a year now and have loved every class! Each class is more challenging than the last.  

I recommend both kickboxing and karate to anyone that is interested. They are not out to just take your money. They truly want your kids to be in the class and encourage them on their journey!”

So hard to believed this was seven years ago. Mr. Rudibaugh was the foundation of The Art of Karate and his passing has left a huge void in all of us. His spirit lives in all of us. We cherish him and his teachings. Much respect Mr. Rudibaugh.
