Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family. It is in the spirit of ‘ohana that Libby & Tom Hill and their dedicated staff open Family Karate, the ‘Ohana Dojo, and invite all who share in that spirit to join us.

Family Karate is a community of martial artists of all skill levels striving to be stronger physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through training in martial arts. We conduct our training in a supportive family atmosphere. We believe training in such a manner not only creates stronger individuals but stronger families, and ultimately creates a larger family of which we are all a part.

March 14 2017

Due to the hazardous road conditions and the expectation of more snow, Family Karate will be closed this evenng, March 14 for all classes. Mind & Body students, please check in with Sensei Ciro regarding your classes.  As always your health and safety are our primary concern.  Stay warm.  Stay safe.

On the 3rd Thursday of each month we are dedicating the 8:15 to 9:00 p.m. time slot to a black belt workout.  We will review, work on new, and renew acquaintances.  All current and former Family Karate black belts are welcome.

Next event is March 16! Also there is a weapons class for black belts on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.  We are currently practicing sai.

Remember your full uniform is required for testing.  Bring all required materials and requirement books. Do your best!

Happy Year of the Rooster!

January 19 2017

Year of the Rooster is a buoyant and optimistic year, but also precarious because the colorful Rooster is prone to nonsensical schemes and to flaunting its authority, which can set off a number of petty disputes.  There is much loud talk for talk’s sake and people tend to take offense at the smallest slight.  This is a year to be practical and conservative and refrain from speculative ventures.  Popular gifts and remembrances for the new year are coins in red envelope or golden items like oranges.  January 28th is the first day of the Chinese New Year.


January 03 2017

Family Karate has added two new classes for 2017.  On Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. there will be a co-ed self-defense class.  This class will be taught by Master Gene Kleckner assisted by Sensei Libby Hill.  Our own lovely Kristin Strauser will be instructing a Pilates class on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.  Pilates combines strength and stretch workouts into one challenging class.  Both of these classes are open to our martial arts and fitness students alike, so check ’em out!

Looking for a fun and different birthday party idea? Family Karate can provide a unique birthday bash. There are optional themes of karate, Star Battles, Zumba, Tai Chi, or fitness kickboxing. We can also provide parties for adults and businesses! We have 2 times on Saturdays OR can arrange for special weekday times for business events.  It is the easiest party you will ever host!  Family Karate provides everything – pizza, cake, beverages, supervision, & clean-up!  Give us a call at 440-255-7300 or email us for more details!
