Student Excellence Award

Every three months a Student Excellence Award is presented to two outstanding students.

The selection is based on good grades, involvement in other school, community, or church activities, and the student's training spirit in class. The students are selected because they train hard, are dependable, and display good sportsmanship.


Each recipient receives a $100.00 prize, along with their name placed on a permanent plaque at the Main School.


The Vero Beach Karate Association has given nearly $30,000.00 to worthy students.
