* We have an age limit of 10 years or older. The beginner class structure is not designed to be a child’s program although we do make the class applicable to most ages and invite families to train together. The Bend Karate Club encourages younger students to learn karate when they are mature enough handle this kind of training. With that being said, there are exceptions to this age limit on a case by case basis. We encourage you to come in and discuss this with one of our instructors.
** On Saturdays from 10:00am to 12:00pm we have open training at the dojo. It is a good time to get individual instruction from Sempai and/or self-train what you have learned during the week at formal class.
