Novastar Martial Arts is a family oriented school that encourages parents to take an active role in their child’s physical, mental and emotional development.

You’ll find that our Karate program will help your child develop AMAZING life skills such as self-confidence, a positive attitude, and goal setting that set the stage for their success in life now and always.

Classes are full of FUN, exciting activities and character development lessons that will teach and encourage your kids to:

  • Focus, keep at it, and always do their best
  • Treat themselves & others with respect
  • Stay physically fit and mentally strong
  • Take responsibility for their actions
  • Set goals & be proud of their accomplishments
  • Have fun, laugh, and create great memories

Novastar Martial Arts is a unique martial arts school that emphasizes respect, self-control and having a positive black belt attitude, as much as we teach your child martial arts and self-defense techniques. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your child is bully-proof wherever they go.  

With time and commitment, you’ll see A LOT of positive changes in your child's behavior - not only in martial arts, but also in school when they get better grades, have a “can do” attitude and are self-disciplined. Or at home, when they do what you tell them to do the first time around. I bet you’re saying ‘hallelujah’ to that!

We believe that your child’s CONFIDENCE level is greatly improved when they work hard to earn each goal they set for themselves. We work side by side with every student and have everyone’s individual goals in mind to ensure their success.

Karate & Fitness Are for Adults Too! We’re all about family here. Fitness in the home is so important to us and we see how much it impacts families every day, in really good ways. Some of our adult members are parents of our younger students and love the classes because it provides them with…

Traditional karate was actually developed for self-defense, but there are so many other mind/body/spirit benefits to learning martial arts. Things like gaining optimal health and fitness, learning the wisdom behind a traditional art and being able to apply martial arts techniques with semi-contact sparring and kickboxing.

And how about being able to perform karate routines at competitions and performances, and to attain the ultimate goal of a “Black Belt.” There’s no better place for all around, high quality personal development than at Novastar.   

Our curriculum will show you that there is so much more to martial arts than just learning how to punch and kick people. Regardless of your goals, Novastar wants to help you develop the courage and confidence to fulfill your goals.

With FREE Child Safety seminars, local competitions, and local performances, gaining a strong sense of EMPOWERMENT is another reason that makes Novastar a unique martial arts training center for your whole family.

Get ready because your life is about to change in amazing and unexpected ways! We can’t wait to train with you and join you on your journey to martial arts and life success with Black Belt level accomplishments! Whatever your goal is, it’s time to train like a SUPERSTAR at Novastar!

Meet Douglas Walter
Owner at Novastar Martial Arts in Mission Viejo, CA
2nd Degree

Mr. Douglas Walter began his Karate career at the age of 11, after watching the original "Karate Kid” back in 1985. He began competing locally as a White Belt and throughout the years, he has performed with national and international demonstration teams, along with competing in many local and international tournaments winning several national championships.

After earning his Black Belt in 1999 from Master John Sharkey (well known internationally as one of the top “quality” karate instructors), Mr. Walter continued teaching and competing. While competing and winning on the North American Sport Karate Association and National Blackbelt League Karate competition circuits, Mr. Walter was invited to be on Team USA in 2000 and 2002 to compete at the annual World Karate Association’s international tournaments, placing in the top 5 at both tournaments among world competitors in the forms, weapons, and semi-contact sparring events.

After opening Novastar Martial Arts, Mr. Walter now passes his well-rounded knowledge and expertise on to his students. Several students have competed at local tournaments and have done extremely well in multiple events.

With the added influence of several friends that work in the entertainment industry in Hollywood, Mr. Walter and Novastar are already developing Superstar talent at Novastar, which brings great joy to Mr. Walter, knowing that he’s helping so many families become the best versions of themselves.
