We Teach Children, Teens and Adults of All Ages and Levels in Separate Classes From 4-84 Years. Our Class Times Are Flexible to Meet the Needs of Our Students and Parents.
New Horizon Karate & More opened in West Boylston, MA in the summer of 1986. We offer Karate & JuJitsu Programs in a group or private setting. All ages are welcome from 4 to 84 years. Our main programs include Kempo Karate, American Kempo JuJitsu, and a specialized Autism & Hyperactivity Program plus much more. We provide a safe, friendly, and fun environment for all ages, where our students can learn the martial arts and self-defense. Instruction is in an open clinic style which allows us to give special attention to the individual. We have programs to meet any fitness level or other concerns a student might have. Master Alty has been teaching the martial arts for close to 50 years. During that time, he has developed many specialized programs and techniques to help the student to maximize their potential.
Our class times are flexible to meet the needs of our students and parents. You may visit our Information & Schedule on our bulletin board to view announcements, tips, and more. Members may use the facilities any time for practicing.
An instructor with almost 50 years’ teaching the martial arts, Master Alty holds many black belts in several styles and disciplines.

Jillian J. -5/26/21 "My 5-year-old son has been attending classes at New Horizon for a couple of months now, and he loves it! Jim is wonderful with the kids, focusing on self-sufficiency and respect in addition to the physical training of karate. He sends out newsletters and updates on progress regularly. The schedule is great and there are classes every day of the week. It's been a great experience for us as parents and also for our son!

My son absolutely loves New Horizon Karate. He has learned so much and can't wait for his class each week. Mr. Alty is great with the kids, he combines learning with fun so perfectly and always makes sure to recognize and celebrate each child's accomplishments and milestones. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Jim was a great guy when my stepdaughter was little. She ended up achieving getting a black belt (Jill Burtt) and working off and on for Jim. Jim and New Horizons were awesome people and made her life turn out great. I can't say enough about the good things and patience that she learned going to many years of summer camps, competitions, in house events. Master Alty is the man

I am so incredibly happy with my decision to sign my kids up at New horizon! We have been going here now for over a year, and my daughter has advanced leaps and bounds. Mr. Alty is absolutely phenomenal with the children. He has so my patience with them but has a strict lesson plan of learning. I know I made the right choice in choosing New horizon karate! My kids have so much self-confidence and discipline from Karate, and I am so proud of what they are learning! They also do awesome birthday party's that are way cheaper than anywhere else! We can't wait to have a birthday party here!

I cannot describe in mere words the impact Master Alty and his staff have had on both my kids over the last 2.5 years. The structure of learning/discipline/fun here, the consistency, kindness, and longevity of staff, and the attention to students are amazing. We originally went on a friend's recommendation, and I assumed it would last maybe two free weeks at the time. Four days later, we were signed up for life. I believe this experience will be one of the best long-term decisions I've helped make with and for my kids. If you're looking for the highest quality of lessons-for-life you're going to find, this is your Dojo.

"Master Alty is phenomenal with kids. He's very patient and can be fun, yet get the kids to learn and enjoy martial arts. For adults, they offer Karate as well as kickboxing, which has been my go-to exercise of late, and it's a really fun class that gets you sweating."
