1. What's this about a free intro class?

All classes at Mejishi Martial Arts offer a free intro so that you can come in and try out our kids karate, adult karate, or Filipino stick fighting class at no obligation. For Teen and Adult Karate, Pre-Karate and Arnis, prospective students can drop in any Monday to try it out.

The Youth Karate program is very popular, and we like to allow groups of students to progress together, so we schedule specific dates for the free intro classes. The next Youth Karate free intro class will be November 7, 2017 at 5pm.

Pre-Registration is Required.
Please call ahead at 248-542-5371 or email us to join our waiting list.

Please use the Troy Street entrance and arrive 15 minutes beforehand. There is metered parking available.

To make things run even smoother, you have the option of printing and filling out our Youth Registration Form ahead of time.
