Special Training- April 2019

April’s Special Training focused on fundamentals (starting with our most basic kata – Taikyoku Shodan), timing drills (to improve our footwork), bunkai (the basic application of kata) and kumite (2 attack sparring).  A welcome reminder to all that we need to balance our focus on kata and weapons training with the application of these techniques.

Annual Takahashi Dojo Toy Drive


Every year, the students and friends of the Takahashi Karate Dojo collect new toys to donate to families in need in our local area. We have proudly engaged in this holiday tradition for nearly 20 years

Here’s how our Toy Drive works:

If you wish to make a donation, please purchase a new toy, gift wrap the package, and attach a tag describing the contents, as well as its appropriate age group and gender.

Bring your donation to the dojo on or before our annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 8th (12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.). A team of dojo students will then deliver the toys to local charities. Donations to our Toy Drive are voluntary. All contributions are greatly appreciated.

Let’s bring in a big haul for a good cause!

Happy Holidays!
