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.

June 14 2014

Hey, Moms & Dads!!! Join us in any class on Saturday, June 14 for FREE! Try out karate, kickboxing, tai chi, yoga, or Zumba. Classes begin at 8:00 a.m.

Please be sure to pick up a Summer Schedule. There are going to be some changes in our class structure this summer.  We are adding a morning class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but merging the Novice and Intermediate classes into the 5:30 p.m. time slot on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  We will be adding instructors for this time to make sure everyone gets attention to their requirements.

Family Karate has been proud of serving as a drop-off site for the Geauga Family Farms CSA for 5 years.  This year we have 60 families picking up at our site, so we are qualifying as a bulk site.  This will allow us to serve the CSA customers better AND raise money for the St. James Episcopal Church Soup-to-Service Campaign.  If you have not enrolled yet, visit their website http://www.geaugafamilyfarms.org/ and sign up today!  You will not regret the great taste and feeling of doing so!

On Saturday, May 24 at 11:00 a.m. Family Karate will be celebrating our 9th anniversary! We will have a cookout in the first pavilion at Fairport Harbor Beach Park. Family Karate provides burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, and some beverages. We ask families to bring beverage, appetizers, salads, and desserts. There will be door prizes and games as well. This event will be held rain or shine. All classes are cancelled for Saturday, May 24 and Monday, May 26 in observance of Memorial Day.
