*COVID-19 update: The entire SF Bay Area is currently in an official “shelter-in-place.” During this time, we are offering virtual training options using ZOOM to broadcast our classes to students – approximately 16 hours/week.* If you are a current member, please check your email for invitations and reach out if you didn’t see them.
*Wait! What?! 16 hours/week of classes on ZOOM? I thought everyone else was only teaching a couple hours each week…? Well, we’re not “everyone.” We are Silicon Valley Karate; continuing to set the high bar for both quality and quantity of instruction.
Normally, we have 14 youth Karate classes/week and 10 adult classes/week (including a few that are open to some kids as well). We also have self-defense workshops, along with guest instructor events and more. See our schedule here.
In our weekly kata classes on Saturday mornings, once we get back to the dojo, physically, we will be doing Jitte for the advanced kata and Heian Shodan for the basic kata. During the COVID-19 pandemic period, we have altered our normal kata class schedule; we do a very basic kata focusing on a certain point and then individuals are encouraged to work on their test/favorite kata while continuing to focus on that point.
First in-house dojo Virtual Tournament will take place in the afternoon on Saturday, June 6. Dojo members please see email for details.
Other special events are in the works but many have been put on hold due to virus concerns. Check back here again soon for more info!
