Our new facility is now OPEN at Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto. We are all the way in the back, in unit G7, just around the corner from the dance studio (G6) we have been renting for several years.
This is the new Silicon Valley Karate honbu (headquarters) dojo, where we are consolidating our multiple locations and expanding the schedule of classes. The facility features 1500 square feet of top-quality Swain “hybrid” mats, which are a blend between tatami texture and smooth.
Having this dedicated space, we will be able to make better use of equipment, including a heavy bag, kicking shields, medicine balls, etc. We will have an office and storage space that will double as a changing room. Being that we are in a community center, we will have use of shared restrooms and there is plenty of parking.
Classes started in this new location on November 28.
Barry is the brains and brawn behind the office renovation.
