Please note we are currently teaching from our private home dojo (see note below).
Classes are by appointment only.
Our dojo follows the older Okinawan tradition of training from a small home based dojo and can be challenging. What we lack in size, we make up in quality and the sincerity of our training. Karate is a discipline that requires commitment. Different than other activity or passtimes. The skills of Karate must be developed gradually and each component builds off of the last. We believe that this commitment to Karate gives students a commitment to themselves and their physical and mental wellbeing.
The level of physical fitness you attain will grow as you progress in your training, and what you will learn in Karate will be with you for a life time!
Good attendance is the key to progress. Although once a week practice is better than no practice at all, it is recommended to train at least two or three times per week to gain the benefits that the Shuri Karate Dojo offers.
Note that the "other costs" are not required immediately on registration. You may wait until you are sure you enjoy the benefits of training at the Shuri Karate Dojo.
Traditional white karate uniform (Keikogi - basic uniform purchased through the school), prices start from $55.00.
Dojo 'Mon' (Keikogi badge/patch) $5.00
Students who wish to participate in dojo sparring will be expected to purchase adequate protective equipment. Please talk with the instructor prior to any purchase. These items will include: hand mitts, leg pads, gum shield and for males, groin protector.
