KIDS KARATE

KIDS’ SEMINAR: We had a great kids’ karate seminar this month.  Lots of young martial artists showed up, worked hard and got some very focused, one-on-one training. They also got to see Kancho demonstrate some wrist locks on Shihandai Ryu (that was fun!).  If you’ve never joined us for a kids’ seminar, you’re missing something special.
