Upcoming Class Changes and Special Events

Our weekly schedule now includes 8 general kids’ classes, one advanced kids’ class and two teens classes, as well as 10 hours/week of adult classes. We will soon be adding even more! See the latest schedule here.

In July, we continue our kata-of-the-month training with the kata Hangetsu (advanced) and Heian Yondan (basic). Next kata will be Meikyo and Heian Godan, starting August 12. On August 5, we will have a “review day,” where some will work in groups and others individually on whichever kata they would like.

Don’t forget that we have self-defense classes (open to non-Karate people as well) taking place on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month, from 7:00pm. These are open to both experience martial artists and novices.

For information on our Kids Karate Camp taking place at our dojo during the month of July, see here.

Stay tuned for information about the next MOVIE NIGHTS. Next is Karate Kid 1 & 2 on Saturday, July 29, starting at 8pm (feel free to drop the kids off at 7:30 if you want to make it a separate Date Night).

We will have an in-house tournament (only our dojo) on Sunday, August 13, starting at noon. Judges please arrive early for a short meeting. Others can arrive early to warm up. Depending on # of participants, this may last about 2-3 hours in total.

Shinkyu Shotokan will be hosting their annual adult (& teens) tournament in South San Francisco on Sunday, August 27.
