Classes at FKU
Are you looking to get in shape, increase your balance and coordination, or learn some self-defense? Karate will get you on track. Karate engages your mind as well as body. Karate is an excellent lifetime activity that can be adapted to your changing needs and abilities. Come and gain confidence, strength, coordination, and mind-body connection. And you'll have fun in a safe, supportive, and sweat-inducing environment.
Women and children of all ages and aptitudes are learning and enjoying karate. We can individualize your training to adapt for many types of physical challenges.
Students are encouraged to attend as many classes as they can. Check out our available classes at the bottom of the page.

Monday Night Tournament Class. Front Row: Mary & Tomas; Middle Row: Linet & Josie; Last Row: Phoebe & Henry
Karate 101 is an 8-week program that will give you more than a taste of what karate can do for you. You will discover your strongest self. During this 8 week beginners' program, you will learn the basics of this traditional art; increase your fitness, coordination, and balance; and practice some practical and highly effective self-defense skills.
The Thursday evening class is devoted specifically to this program. But you are encouraged to join the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday all-levels classes!
Karate 101 will begin on these Thursdays in 2019: January 17, April 18, July 18, September 19. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move freely. Karate uniforms (“gi”) are available at the dojo as well. We train in bare feet, but if you need shoes for orthopedic reasons, they should be non-scuffing, indoor footwear that you use only for karate.
