Optional Sunday Practice
NOTE: Practice time is tentatively changing to 1 PM due to other community center rentals through April. Please RSVP and message us to confirm the class time and room as the scheduled date approaches. Sunday classes are much more informal. If you choose to attend, we won't have a set schedule, but this will give you a good chance to practice. You can also work one-on-one with one of the instructors and ask any questions you have. Depending on the week, we may cancel if the instructors are out of town or have a conflicting event.

What we're about

We are two karate instructors, both with over 12 years in the discipline. We are looking for engaged students who want to learn a traditional karate style and stick with it. We focus on kata (a defined series of self-defense movements) and teaching the meaning behind the moves. We teach on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7:00-8:30, with an optional practice on Sundays, at Carolina Pines Community Center. Our classes are somewhat informal, as we prefer to build a bond with our students rather than teach by pure rote. Come enjoy a few classes for free to see if you like it. Normal rates are $40 per month.
