Jernigans School of Karate provides a very welcoming and structured environment for students of all ages. Master Jernigan commands respect and is a good authority figure for the younger students. He develops you mentally, physically and spiritually by teaching lifelong lessons of self-defense, self-awareness, self-confidence, discipline and respect. As an adult student, the mental training has taught me to be more patient, relaxed, focused and confident. I have also benefited from the physical training as I am able to maintain my weight and I have more energy and stamina.
