Zen Budo Karate teaches in 19 Different schools and community centers throughout the year (see below). If your school is not on the list and you would like us to teach at your school or for your after school program, please let us know.
Each after school class has 5 minutes of meditation, rules, and verbal explanation at the beginning of class. This is followed by 10 minutes of stretching and warm up, 10 minutes of Kata and technique practice, and 20 minutes of practice with a partner in drills (blocking punches or kicks, or escaping grabs). At the end of class, we do 10 minutes of a fun activity (such as a karate obstacle course), and 5 minutes of cool down, stretching, and verbal instruction to end the class.
