It's a new season!

The winter season of karate will run from December 1 to February 20, 2015. This season students will be tested over their fitness levels by performing the specific workout listed below (Shredder). We are covering these exercises during the first two weeks of the season and will do an initial evaluation the week of December 15-20. Students will then be re-tested the week of February 2-7.

Each week students will have a KWOD - karate workout of the day. The KWOD listed below will be how we evaluate students for their fitness stripe.

KWOD: Shredder


Mountain Climbers

Jumping Jacks


Air Squats

Rounds and Repetitions:

  • Advanced Students (Blue - Adv. Brown Belts) - 15 of each exercise in round 1, 10 of each in round 2, and 5 of each in round 3.
  • Intermediate Students (Adv. Green - Adv. Purple Belts) - 8 of each exercise in round 1, 6 of each in round 2, and 4 of each in round 3.
  • Beginner Students (White - Green Belts) - 6 of each exercise in round 1, 4 of each in round 2, and 2 of each in round 3.

We have been working hard on these exercises in class, so if you've heard a mention of sore legs....that's probably why! We're building STRONG, healthy bodies! :)

Welcome new students!

This week we are welcoming four new students into after school karate! Please help us welcome Aven & Niala Kelley and Landon & Preston Soliday. We're so excited to have them with us at the Dojo!

Sparring Class

If your child is a gold belt (or above) and you have purchased sparring gear, he/she is eligible to attend sparring classes for no additional charge. These classes are not required, but are recommended. Sparring classes take place on Wednesdays from 5:00-5:45 PM and Saturdays from 10:45-11:30 AM. We encourage after school students to take the Wednesday class because it is right after their regular class. If you do not want your child to take this class because they need to be picked up early, etc. just let us know!
