SMS KARATE KID Are Back
Starting Wednesday, September 11, 2019
The SMS KARATE KIDS after-school program is back for its 19th year at SMS!
The SMS KARATE KIDS practice traditional Okinawan martial arts to learn self-control, concentration, respect, fitness, and self-defense skills in a non-competitive environment with the special concerns of SMS students in mind. The SMS KARATE KIDS after-school program has been at SMS since 2001, with Kindergarten through Middle School participating.
The SMS Karate Kids program is presented by former SMS parents Robert Weinberg (10th Degree Black Belt), Zhen Guo (Fourth Degree Black Belt) and assisted by Felix Sanes (Eighth Degree Black Belt). Robert Weinberg is a direct senior student of “Living Legend” Grandmaster Eizo Shimabukuro of Okinawa and brings more than 60 years’ experience to this program. Our motto is “Training the Spirit & Body; Courtesy and Defense; Character and Etiquette”
The Karate Kids program runs for the entire school year with class every Wednesday afternoon. The autumn session 2019 is 13 classes from September 11 through December 18. Classes meet Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 – 4:15 in Room 409, and the tuition for the 13 classes is $286.00 (a part of the tuition is allocated to the Kaufman Center). Siblings pay only one-half price and some tuition assistance is available by request. A karate uniform is needed and is available for $25. We pick up the students on the third floor at dismissal. A snack is provided at the end of each session.
Please register as soon as possible as space is limited. A waiver form is required and will be supplied when we are contacted. Contact us to register or for any questions by email to NYRendokan@aol.com or call 646-331-4606.
We hope you will join us for our 2019 -2020 SMS year!
