We at SMA understand that people join martial arts for a variety of reasons. Although Sterling Martial Arts is rooted in tradition, we maintain a modern outlook on karate and self defense. In our commitment to create a well-rounded martial artist, we incorporate tradition, tournament, and realistic techniques to ensure that our students are prepared on multiple levels.

Being a martial artist is more than kicking and punching; it's a governing way of life. Honesty, integrity, respect, discipline and honor are just a few values of a true martial artist. At SMA, we strive to bring out these values in our students.
