At Hayme Serrato’s Martial Arts, we are committed to the safety and well-being of our staff and students. During this uncertain time, we have to ensure that we follow the rules to make sure that everyone remains healthy.

Requirements during this time include:

  • Face Masks are to be worn at all times. If you forget your mask or do not have one, please see Master Serrato. 
  • Hand Sanitizer must be used upon entering the building. 
  • You must have your temperature taken in order to participate. Should you have a fever, you will be asked to leave immediately. 
  • You must bring your own water for break. 
  • No high fives or physical contact at this time. Please do your best to social distance from those around you.
  • DO NOT, under any circumstances, come to class if you have fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
  • Please advise Master Serrato immediately if you find out that you have tested positive for Covid-19 or have been exposed to Covid-19.

We ask that you comply with these rules so that we can continue learning in a safe manner.  


  • Your karate school is a place of respect – bow as you enter and exit the building
  • The mats are your workplace and deserve the same respect – bow before you step on or off the mat
  • Your instructors have trained in the art for many years – show your respect by addressing them as ‘Sir’ or Ma’am
  • Your uniform is a symbol of honor and pride for yourself and your school – when worn, it should include your pants, top and belt – all of which should be clean and pressed
  • You deserve respect also – respect yourself by following proper hygiene – come to class with a clean body, mind and spirit
  • BE ON TIME FOR CLASSES! – It is a sign of respect to your training, your instructors and your fellow students


To help students achieve their goals, they will be tested on a regular basis and their progress will be assessed by an instructor. Achieving a Black Belt is a multi-year goal for most students and during that time there are short term objectives that will help you to advance in skill level. Learning to set and achieve your goal will help you to be successful in other areas of your life as well. 
Through the years, Martial Arts has grown rapidly. It’s image is no longer that of a gym, but of a school with a curriculum that outlines goals and objectives. A strong classroom structure is the key to the Black Belt Success System – it will help students to stay focused on their own personal goals.


  • A class schedule helps you to manage your time more efficiently & allow you to take advantage of more opportunities.
  • In only a few productive classes a week, you can improve your outlook, grow healthier and live a happier life.
  • We offer group sessions and you may also inquire about the availability of private lessons.
  • Our class schedules have been carefully thought out, with the student’s convenience in mind.


The Black Belt Club is made up of active Black Belts and those who have committed themselves to becoming Black Belts. It is a special accelerated membership for students to achieve their long-term goals.
