Okinawan Kemp Karate is a traditional martial art. It is based on developing good human character. We use karate, as a tool, to make ourselves into better people. Because we don't compete with others, children as well as older adults can learn and practice this art to become healthy in body and mind. We study kata's, traditional Okinawan wood weapons, and calligraphy.

Our instructor, Sensei Lars Hansen, has studied karate for over 10 years and is a second-degree black belt. He is certified by a national board of directors to teach this type of karate. The fee is based on monthly participation.

The per month registration fee is due the Thursday prior to the first class day of the month. There will be a $20 shirt fee to get started. You can wear your own black sweats to start or purchase karate pants from the instructor ($15-25). No yoga pants.
