We cannot accept responsibility for items left overnight and/or prolonged storage. Please keep this in mind when considering what to send with your child each day.

Any clothing or personal belongings left at the end of the day will be placed in “lost and found”. Any unclaimed items will be discarded after ten days.

A uniform should be purchased for your child/children. Cost for this item is $45.00, but should last your child all year unless they outgrow it. It is very important that they have their uniform every day and it should be clean and be kept in good repair.


We will provide snacks for your child/children. If your child/children require any special nutritional items or have food allergies, please contact us to make arrangements to provide snacks. Rules for lunch and/or snack time include: using table manners, respecting prayer time before meals, staying at the table until excused, and cleaning their area after eating.

Please note:

During summer day camp, vacation days, etc., snacks are provided, but students are responsible for their own lunch each day. Lunches should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

Our Goal at Cape Fear Isshin-Ryu is to give your child a positive outlet for their creative energies. Our two senior instructors combine for more than 40 years in the martial arts and are both licensed educators in the state of North Carolina. We strive for teaching safe, fun, and challenging martial arts. As with every program, we have rules that all students must follow.

If Cape Fear Isshin-Ryu experiences repeated inappropriate behavior for any enrolled child, that child will be given a verbal warning and instruction on how to correct the behavior. After being set out of the activity, if the student’s behavior is not corrected promptly, we will call the parent or guardian for assistance. Upon a second disciplinary action requiring a phone call to the parent or guardian, we will require the parent or guardian to make arrangements to immediately (30 minutes or less) pick up their child for the rest of the day. Students that are a consistent disciplinary problem will be suspended from the program after appropriate warning to the parents. Cape Fear Isshin-Ryu reserves the right to remove any child from the program. This is for the safety and well being of all students and staff.
