TKCW dojo continues training indoors.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges, and karate training is no exception.  For the safety of all members, please stay home if you are ill or think you may have contracted a viral infection.   We strongly recommend that all TKCW members receive COVID-19 vaccinations per CDC guidelines.  We now leave the decision as to whether to wear a mask during class up to the individual.

Advanced Karate Training Sundays are indoors

We will have advanced kata done indoors each Sunday from 9:00-10:30 am.  Open to brown and black belt ranks only.   We train with our fellow karateka from the JKA Chicago dojo, and it’s always an invigorating work out.

The program starts with heian kata and then we pick more advanced Shotokan kata to learn and refine.   Come, learn and enjoy!
