Schedule

UPDATE ON JULY 21ST

We’re excited to announce that our Summer Camps and in-person evening classes are both in session now.  Our in-person classes are offered on Wednesday evenings.  Monday in-person classes will also be offered starting next week.  Find more information below.

Be sure to reserve a spot online for these 5 Student Max classes ahead of time.  Registration information is attached to our weekly cyber-dojo email.

We will continue to offer our main curriculum content via Youtube videos however we will reduce the number of videos of warm-ups, challenge rounds, and object training drills.  We will of course do these in class so show up and have some fun with us online and in our in-person classes.  These videos will be added every week but they might come out later in the week due to conflicts for the filming sessions.

Attention:  Please note that you will need to register for class each day you plan on attending in order for us to ensure we keep our classes to 5 people max.

Our indoor in-person classes will start on Wednesday, July 1st.  We will be keeping our zoom classes running as scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  Our process of returning to in-person classes will feature both in-person and virtual classes and our schedule will likely change as we gauge interest and manage our safety requirements.

UPDATE ON APRIL 2ND

Due to the COVID-19 ‘stay at home’ order, Emerald City Karate suspended all on-site classes on March 16th.  We currently are offering karate training virtually both through live Zoom classes as well as our curriculum content which is available 24 hours a day via YouTube.

These classes are for students ages 4 and older.  In addition to our regular classes, we are also offering our Weapons Class and Stripe Testing classes virtually.

Please make sure you check our website, our Facebook page, our Facebook group regularly, and your email is up-to-date with us.

UPDATE ON MARCH 16TH

Effective Monday, March 16th, Emerald City Karate is suspending all on-site classes for a minimum of 14 days. We hope to be back in action for the week of Monday, March 30th.  However, things may change as we are all facing uncharted territory so please bear with us if unknown circumstances change future plans.  We will continue to serve our community via a ‘cyber-dojo’ for our students to polish their skills at home.

Please make sure you check our website, our Facebook page, our Facebook group regularly, and your email is up-to-date with us.

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.
