About LDK

Lion’s Den Karate is located in St Augustine, Florida, and has been serving for St Augustine Team for 12 Years. Lion’s Den Karate started with a dream. We wanted to create a place where children and adults could get training in the Martial Arts, not simply as a sport, but as a lifestyle choice. A place where physical training is combined with increased knowledge, focus, honor, respect, self-discipline, and self-confidence. We provide a relaxed atmosphere where we get to know our students and provide them with the right direction to reach each individual’s personal goals. Our aim is to remain small and personal. We offer classes Monday through Saturday and we request that our students commit to a two times per week minimum but have unlimited classes per week. Come join us for a free class and see for yourself if we are the right place for you. We offer several programs: Lion Cubs ages 4 to 6 years of age, Children Classes ages 7 to 13 years old, Adult Classes 14 and up, as well as Tai Chi for healing. We have MAAP (Martial Arts Apprenticeship Program) which is our own after school program, and we offer private lessons. We also have Kickboxing and Women’s Self Defense training. We provide classes in English, Spanish and American Sign Language.
