Karate Classes

Ages 6 & up

New Session starts July 1, 2021

Karate is back at the Stateline Family YMCA! Your child will work on skills such as self discipline, focus, concentration, listening skills, coordination, balance, control and teamwork.

Classes are held in the K.F. Multi-Purpose Room at the Ironworks Branch.


4:30-5:00 PM
5:00-5:30 PM


If you're new to Karate, we recommend getting into the 4:30 pm class if you're able! Also, please attend 5-10 minutes early on your first day so you can talk with Master Ben about uniforms and any questions.


Meet the Instructor!

Ben Pedrick is a certified 8th degree black belt who has been teaching karate since 1983. Ben runs his own studio at Star Martial Arts Studios in South Beloit, and is excited to offer a class at the Y!

You can register at any new month - to ensure quality classes, no new registrations can be taking mid-month. The best option to register is in person or over the phone to ensure your child is put on automatic draft. Karate runs continuous through monthly drafts. This means you don't have to re-sign up every month! For your convenience, it will be drafted out of your account on file on the 1st of each month. If your child doesn't want to continue, simply sign a cancellation form 2-weeks prior to the next draft date.

Uniform: To be enrolled in our Karate Program, purchasing the uniform is required. On your child's first day of class, the instructor help you with ordering the uniform. It is theirs to keep and wear for each class. For questions on the uniform, please contact Ben Pedrick at starstudiosinc83@gmail.com.
