My name is Peter Carafides and I am the owner/chief instructor of Carafides Martial Arts.  I hold a 3rd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and I am a Certified Personal Trainer.  Over the last ten years, I have taught thousands of students from 3 to 70+ years old and helped train hundreds of Black Belts.  

I created Carafides Martial Arts because I have seen and experienced the benefits of martial arts training with myself, my family, and thousands of others.  This kind of activity can help foster increased strength, stamina, confidence, focus, as well as decreased stress.


Through my training and education I have developed a curriculum and teaching methodology that allows children and adults of all ages to enjoy their experience with martial arts, whether through group or private classes.

With focus and hard work we can all get better at whatever we choose.
