This scholarship was started by Wheeles Karate Academy for families
that may not have the financial resources to provide their children with this learning experience. We feel the structure and learning process of martial arts can help children learn self-discipline,
and achieve other goals in every aspect of life.
This year, we will be awarding two (2) boys and two (2) girls with a
scholarship. This scholarship is a one (1) year scholarship at the Wheeles Karate Academy. This scholarship includes: one (1) year of karate lessons, one (1) uniform, one (1) WKA t-shirt,
two (2) tournaments per year (Beach Brawl and Battle at the Beach), and all testing fees. This scholarship does not include sparring gear, private lessons, after school karate program, Jujutsu
lessons, summer camp, winter camp, parent’s night out, karate competition team, or any other special events held by Wheeles Karate Academy.(A set of sparring gear and weapons, will be available at
the dojo for the students use.) Additional uniforms are available for purchase.
Approximate value of this scholarship is $1,600.00. Students are
required to maintain good grades, behavior, and attendance at school. If at any time the child chooses not to participate or fails to attend eighty percent (80%) of scheduled training each month, the
scholarship will be withdrawn, and funds will be held until the next scholarship year. If a medical issue arises that prevents the student from attending class, the instructors will use their
discretion to excuse the absence.
