Did you know we have Day Camps on most days the kids are out of school?!? Day Camp is open to all children (do not have to be a karate student) in grades K-8th. Camp is from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. Campers must bring a lunch as well as a small pillow and blanket for movie time. You can sign up for camp by placing your child’s name on the sign up sheet at the do jang or call us at 261-6326 and we’ll add your child’s name for you!
Mark your calendars for these upcoming Day Camps!

(Rules & Reminders for Day Camp: Campers must be dropped off by 8:30 each day. Day Camp “no shows” will be charged a $20 “no show” fee if your child’s name is on the sign up sheet. You must cancel within 48 hours of the day of camp to avoid being charged. Campers who show up for camp and are not signed up on the sign up sheet will be charged a $10 “drop in” fee in addition to the daily camp fee. We appreciate your understanding. Thank you!)

We are excited to announce that the 2020 International Tang Soo Do World Championships will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Renaissance Hotel Orlando at Seaworld! The tournament and seminars are open to all students of all ages and ranks. We hope to have a large group of students attend this tournament. The tournament will be held August 6-9. More info will be given during our Awards Night in September. We would like to begin fundraising now, so that we will be able to raise a large amount before the tournament gets here to help offset the cost of attending. If anyone has questions about the World Tournament, please see Mrs. Lauren!
Effectively immediately we will begin using Remind for text message reminders from Central Karate. To sign up, simply text @cklatsd to 81010
