Message from School Owner Jim Peacock

Hi, My name is Jim Peacock and I’d like to thank you for your interest in our school. I take a lot of pride in our programs here at Amherst Karate Studio and I believe we have a school that is unlike any other. The success stories that come from our school are many and I really feel like I have the most rewarding career anyone could ever ask for.

Karate training for me was a life changing experience. At the time I tried I knew I needed to exercise and stay in shape, but I didn’t have the motivation to join a gym, and team sports seemed to me to be good for a handful of kids on the team, but not for everyone on the team. I had a casual interest in Karate and thought I’d give it a try, but didn’t have the nerve to take that next step. My friend started karate and insisted I give it a try. He helped get me started by loaning me his uniform and even lent me some money.


My instructor was patient and encouraging, and before long I realized that I actually could do it with a reasonable amount of skill. Karate training gave me the confidence to reject negative peer pressure, and before long I was choosing to go to class instead of doing some of the things that my friends at the time were doing, which quite frankly wasn’t the best thing for a kid to do. Karate gave me a positive environment with like- minded people who truly cared about my growth and development. 33 years later I still remember those first few days I started and wonder what my life would’ve ended up like if I hadn’t. I really don’t like to think about that. I consider my Instructor to be among one of the most influential people in my life. I now have a strong desire to give to other people what he gave to me: a life rich with friends with good habits and a skill that could save my life. I am blessed, and love my martial arts life!

If you think karate might be a good choice for you or your kid, please give us call and schedule an appointment for a visit . You can find our schedule online at Don’t delay, as we pride ourselves on having an excellent student to instructor ratio here at our school, and class sizes are intentionally limited. I hope to hear from you!
