Karate  |  Grades 7 - 12

**Please note-new students are accepted in September & January ONLY**
Students who have previously completed at least two months of class may rejoin at anytime during the year.

Karate at the YMCA focuses on both physical techniques and personal growth. Using both drills and games, we learn punches, kicks, breakfalls and throws, self-defense techniques, kata, and sparring. Physical benefits include increased flexibility, coordination, balance, and general fitness. We also work on focus, self-control, manners, confidence, and respect.

Sessions are continuous throughout the year and build upon each other. Students may join at anytime as classes are limited to 12 students so individual attention is possible. Sensei Sarah has been studying Karate since 2003, and teaching since 2011. She is a 2nd degree black belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate.
