    Summer Camp 2017

    Chicago Dojo

    Kids ages 5-12 will love our fun-filled camp which will be held this year from August 14-18, 2017.  Open to current karate students as well as kids new to martial arts, this camp involves learning new skills; practicing basics, kata, and kumite; fitness games; and more.

    Sensei Jay and his amazing team of instructors will keep all campers moving in a positive, social setting.  The highlight is the “Camp Show” and Pizza Party on Friday to showcase their camp experience!
