Karate Kids

Our dojo (martial arts school) teaches Yoshukai Karate classes for kids which meet every day except Sunday, for kids ages 6-12. All classes are taught by certified World Yoshukai Black Belts. Students begin at white belt and can attain the black belt in 4 to 5 years, training at least twice a week. All testings are overseen by head instructor, sixth degree black belt, Shihan Gerry Blanck.
Yoshukai means “strive for excellence” in Japanese. Students of Yoshukai Karate learn the 5 Precepts, which help them along this path:
