Dedication to Our Community

Charities & Non-Profits

At Emerald City Karate, supporting our Community is a big deal!  Emerald City Karate supports Charities & Non-Profits.

We are proud to help support and sponsor the Greenwood Elementary Jog-a-thon and school auctions for nearly every local school in the area.  We also support the annual Hunger Goblin drive in October as well as the Greenwood Classic Car Show in June.   We offer transported After School Programs for families in our community and offer special day time classes for home school families who  dedicate their lives to the personal education of their family members.

Another popular community dojo event is our monthly Parents’ Night Out event which is an extravaganza of excitement featuring nerf games, dodge ball, foam sword battles, pizza parties, and more.

We continue to strive to be a pillar of excellence in our community by offering Women’s Self-Defense Seminars to the public to help keep our families safe in the constantly changing world.

College Scholarship: American Shudokan Association

Emerald City Karate is part of the American Shudokan Association which has given away over $200,000 to Karate students graduating and moving on to higher education. Tobey Sensei and many other members of our organization have received this wonderful scholarship. This prestigious scholarship is available for every actively training black belt who is graduating from high school with at least a 3.0 grade point average.

This is part of our dedication to our community and our students’ futures. It also sets us apart from other Martial Arts organizations. If your child attains the rank of Black Belt before graduating high-school while maintaining at least a grade point average of 3.0 they will be awarded a College Scholarship of $1,000!

Train hard now because all of that sweat will pay off down the road when you apply to your favorite university!

Karate Demonstrations & Seminars

Emerald City Karate is proud to have put on Karate Performances for various community and school events.  We have been honored to perform at several schools throughout our community.  Our performances feature pulse-pounding martial arts excitement as well as brief historical and educational information about the background of this timeless art and a short ‘mat chat’ which teaches the values and philosophical aspects of the self-mastery.  Contact us if you would like to have us join you for your event and to inquire about availability.

Self-Defense Seminars

Our dedication to the community extends beyond the scope of our typical martial arts classes.  Emerald City Karate is proud to offer self-defense seminars for small groups, businesses, and corporations which can be adapted to meet the individual needs of each group’s individual situation.
Our seminars can focus on a variety of topics from simple preparedness to actual implementation of self-defense concepts.  We have a ‘Stranger Danger’ program for children as well as a program for women for honest and straightforward self-defense options.
Testimonials

“I first started training under Sensei Tobey in 2008. When I first started my training I was a pack a day smoker. I had tried to quit smoking many times but had failed. I promised Sensei I’d quit before my black belt test. I no longer smoke, and I bearticleeve that my training in Shudokan Karate under Sensei Tobey gave me the mental disciparticlene that I needed to quit.”

“My 7-year old son and I have been going to Emerald City Karate for several years now. We have had a great time and always look forward to our family/youth class. As well as teaching about karate and Japanese culture and language, Sensei Tobey provides great lessons on how to work hard and patiently to succeed in anything. It’s also a great way to get mid-week exercise!”

“Sensei Tobey is my son’s Karate teacher (we’re in the 4 to 6 year old class). As a teacher of small children, I find him to be a wonderful combination of patience, disciparticlene, and fun. He is very passionate about teaching Karate and it shows. He relates to the kids very well and can teach boys and girls equally, not only the physical skills of Karate but mental focus and articlefe skills as well. It’s been a great experience for my son and I highly recommend Sensei Tobey and Emerald City Karate to anyone looking to enroll their child in a martial arts class. “

Testimonials

Before joining Emerald City Karate I had no experience playing sports or participating in exercise programs because I didn’t like physical activities. So I didn’t expect I would be able to keep training for more than a month or so. But I found it to be fun immediately. The karate class has a variety of different subjects that keep students from being bored. Also, Sensei Tobey knows how to encourage students and allows them to have fun while feeling good about themselves. He likes telling jokes and making students laugh but his passion for teaching karate is always distinctive and serious. Because of his encouragement, I have kept training for a long time and even now I am training in Japan! Karate has taught me the joy of exercise and improved my concentration and it continues to teach many students to practice better manners and etiquette.

It is my pleasure to recommend Emerald City Karate for your exercise and experience of the martial arts.
