Karate/Kung-Fu

Kids Aged 11-17. A salad approach to the traditional martial arts of Okinawa, China, and Japan and the US. This class include warm-ups, basic techniques, forms and kata, application and some sparring. We will touch on the cultural significance of each art, and explore some of the pliosophies underpinning each one. Students will progress through colored belt ranks. Continuing students may learn traditional weapons forms as well as empty handed forms. Performances and competition might be an option as well, TBD.
