2021-2022 School Year Camps AKA School Holiday Camps

Emerald City Karate is offering some great camps to help families out with childcare throughout the school year for ECK students and Non-ECK students.

No experience in Martial Arts before?  No problem!

Our school year camps are designed to be fun and educational for children at every level of experience from beginners to advanced.

Each camp will feature pulse-pounding Martial Arts Techniques as well as exciting themes from secret agents to ninjas.  Each camp will have games, activities, and crafts coordinated to the theme as well as NERF Blaster games, Foam Sword Battles, and opportunities to play at the park.

    All camps are for campers ages 6 and Older.

    All camps run between 9 AM – 4 PM.

    All transportation and field trip fees are included in the price of the camp at no additional cost!  (For Mid-Winter Break & Spring Break Camp)

    NO Experience Needed! You’ll have a blast even if you’ve never trained a day in the martial arts!

    The themed games in every camp teach life skills like Teamwork, Focus, Control, Honesty, and Respect.

    Every camp features NERF Blaster excitement in a Safe and Responsible environment. *Participants are required to wear our provided Safety Glasses during these activities.

You can be confident that we have the right stuff to best serve your family, having successfully facilitated camps all summer under the CDC/State guidelines.

Field Trip Information

We usually take field trips to the Family fun center for our Mid-Winter Break and Spring Break Camps.  This year due to Covid 19 we may have to alter our plans for field trips.  If a safe family friendly field trip location isn’t available during one of our week long camps we’ll turn the dojo into a family fun center.  We successfully did this for Summer Camps this year.  Our ‘Dojo Family Fun Center’ features a bouncy house, karaoke machines, bowling, laser tag, theater screen with free popcorn, and video games.

“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. “

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.
