Hope everyone had a great summer! Adult classes have continued all summer long and our athletes were busy doing fundraising events to travel to nationals and the Dominican Republic camp in April.
Fall classes start up on Saturday September 12th. Rates remain the same.
However please note we will have a new location this year and new class times.
Until mid October we will be training out of West Royalty Elementary School on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30 to 7:30 for juniors and adults and then 7:30 to 8:30 for adults only.
Looking forward to seeing all our students along with some new faces. If there are any parents that may have been thinking about joining, there has never been a better time! Karate is the only sport that parents and children can train together!
