We have classes for kids and teens every weekday afternoon, and offer a low monthly rate for unlimited classes, to make afterschool extra-affordable. We also currently teach an afterschool karate program at one of Manhattan’s public schools. If you’re interested in having us talk to your child’s school (public or private) about creating a karate afterschool program there, please speak with Sensei Matsumoto.
