Kangeiko is a Japanese term meaning “cold training” or “winter training.” The purpose of this tradition is to go into the New Year with a high level of effort, renewed excitement and spirit, and a commitment to carry on for the rest of the year!!
Here’s our plan:
8:00 AM – Meet at Barrie Park in Oak Park (corner of Lombard and Garfield)
All ages and ranks are welcome. If you are training with multiple family members, please submit one RSVP per person.
What to Wear / Bring
Warm clothes and shoes/sneakers appropriate for cold/wet weather – no karate uniform
In Case of Extreme Weather
In case of extreme weather (e.g., very rainy or icy), we’ll move the event to Zoom using the regular class link starting at 8:00 AM. We won’t have all the cold elements in place, but the intention will be the same! We will make a call on the weather by 6:30 AM on Saturday and will post to Facebook and our website homepage.
Unless otherwise noted, Enso’s events are for current students only.
Enso hosts several special seminars throughout the year. We invite highly-regarded sensei from the U.S. and abroad to bring their expertise to students at our dojo. Students travel from near and far to attend these events.
Enso participates in karate tournaments at the local and international levels. We also host one small tournament a year.
