At-Home Challenge #4: Quarantine Push-Ups

At the dojo, we sometimes do partner push-ups. While we’re at home, that may be more challenging. So, for this week’s challenge, take a video of yourself doing push-ups while balancing something on your back. It could be a stuffed animal, or your karate gear, or a puppy, or a sibling — feel free to get creative!

Deadline: 6pm on Saturday, May 2nd

At-Home Challenge #3: Thank You Challenge

Right now, life isn’t easy. But there’s also so much for which we are grateful. This week’s challenge is to create a sign dedicated to one person or group of people you’d like to thank. Maybe it’s health care workers, or a specific nurse or doctor you know. Maybe it’s your Amazon delivery person. Maybe it’s a teacher at school. Maybe it’s one of your parents or siblings or friends. Whoever you pick, make the sign special and then take a photo of yourself holding the sign.

Deadline: 6pm on Saturday, April 25th

At-Home Challenge #1: Share Your NON-Karate Fitness!

We’re very happy to see you all at karate training!

Deadline: 6pm on Saturday, April 11th
