Karate Club

The SMS KARATE KIDS after-school program is back for its 18th year at SMS!

The SMS KARATE KIDS practice traditional Okinawan martial arts to learn self-control, concentration, respect, fitness, and self-defense skills with the special concerns and needs of the SMS students in mind, in a disciplined, non-competitive environment. The SMS KARATE KIDS after school program has been a great success 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) and Zhen Guo (Fourth Degree Black Belt) and senior student Felix Sanes (Eighth Degree Black Belt). Robert Weinberg is a senior student of legendary karate Grandmaster Eizo Shimabukuro of Okinawa and brings nearly 60 years’ martial arts experience to this program.

Our program runs for the entire school year. The autumn session is 14 regular classes from September 5th through December 19 (NOTE: The Wednesday before Thanksgiving – November – 21- is also available for those who wish to attend and is billed separately). Classes meet Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 – 4:15 in Room 409 (we pick up the students on the third floor at dismissal.

The tuition for the 14 classes is $308.00 (part of the tuition is allocated to the Kaufman Center). Siblings pay one-half price and some tuition assistance is available by request. A karate uniform is necessary and is available for $25.

Please register as soon as possible as space is limited. A waiver form is needed and will be supplied.

Contact us to register or for questions by email to NYRendokan@aol.com or call 646-331-4606.
