The School

Since 2002, Team United Karate has been training students in Martial Arts.  Our style combines traditional karate, self-defense, and sparring techniques.  Located conveniently off Route 378 near Historic Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, we offer training to both adults and children.

The school was founded by Sensei Sam Esposito. His goals have been to:

  1. teach an effective martial arts system that adds to the quality of each individual student's life

  2. create a family atmosphere where people from all walks of life gather and train together as equal

  3. lead students to develop strong martial arts skills to defend against those who try to take advantage, yet learn to be caring and compassionate to those less fortunate
These goals continue to guide Team United Karate.

Team United Karate’s recipe for success utilizes a combination of strong techniques, vigorous workouts, and caring instructors. Team United Karate's instructors realize that each student enters into a karate program with different goals and objectives and that it is their responsibility to know the goals of each student and help them to achieve.

It is an old saying that "a student doesn't know how much his instructor knows, until he knows how much his instructor cares." This philosophy is what motivates our instructors to care about each student in a way that is second to no other Martial Arts system.

The students learn to defend themselves, improve their physical conditioning and mental awareness. Through Martial Arts training students improve their self-esteem, confidence, discipline, focus and develop leadership qualities that help to give them an overall winning attitude.
