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.

Middle Name Day

March 07 2014

Be proud of your middle name! Family Karate will have nametags ready for all to proudly display their middle name on Monday, March 10. Why did your parents choose that middle name? Is it a family name or did it just sound good with your first name?

Since Senseis Libby and Tom Hill won’t be here, they will share their middle name stories. Sensei Libby’s middle name is Hunt and was her great grandmother’s maiden name. Sensei Tom’s middle name, Dawson, is also a family name. It was his mother’s maiden name.

So celebrate your middle name on this day and celebrate your family heritage!

Year of the Horse is a high-spirited, hectic, and adventurous year. This year people are confident, carefree, whimsical, capricious and romantic.
