The Carroll Manor Karate Program continues to provide excellent instruction with low fees!

We have a great program providing excellent instruction from our Sensei Lisa Calvert Chalk and Sensei Steven Chalk. We are very pleased to be associated with United Martial Arts of Maryland. Students range from age 8 to adult and our classes are held at the Sweet Air Park.  We are family friendly as we encourage children and their parents to learn the Martial Arts.

We are proud of each and every student and thank you for your support as we continue to make the Carroll Manor Rec Karate program the very best it can be. If you have any questions or have friends who would like to join our program please contact Shodan Black Belt and Program Director Fred Figlewski.

2021 Program:



UMAM karate is a unique combination of American Kenpo Karate, Tang Soo Do, Ju jitsu, Chin Na, and Judo. As students progress through belt-ranks they learn self-defense, self-discipline and concentration. They also gain fitness, motivation and new friendships.
