Karate STL

St Louis, 
Missouri 63043 USA
 (Midwest St Louis County)

Since 1995


The purpose of karate training is to learn self-defense, self-reliance, respect (for oneself and others), and character enrichment.  Karate is emphasized as a martial art rather than a competitive sport.  Achieve confidence and practical expertise, without intimidation or hostility.  Safety is paramount!  Learning from and helping each other, and using skills effectively and with good judgment is the true art of karate.

Tue, Thu & Sun,
  • Oct 27, 29 and/or Nov 1 ONLYHappy Halloween
Important:
A parent of each youth student & buddy MUST EMAIL Sensei with "yes" or "no" permission to give their child candy, no later than day before class.  No in-person permissions... email only. No candy given if no email received... teacher@karateSTL.com.
Students and their buddies may wear costumes to class, if they wish.  Each student may bring one or two friends or relatives (age 7+) to their class, no charge!  Buddies can wear costumes (see Strict Costume Guidelines) or regular clothes.  After emailing Sensei, they can simply show up and won’t be obligated or pressured to enroll.  A fun way to share karate with a buddy!!   
Strict Costume Guidelines:
NO WEAPONS (not even fake or pretend) allowed on the premises.  Under robes or dresses, wear shorts, pants, tights or leggings but none with feet (if indoor class), since students must train in bare feet.  If
outdoor class, wear tied shoes and socks.  Costumes must be appropriate.  Students encouraged to bring and show but during class must remove the following:  masks, shoes, hats, capes & other props that might interfere with training in class.  Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
