The Jefferson Township Recreation Department’s Karate Program will begin its next 10-week session on Monday, May 12, 2014, and continue through Monday, July 21, 2014.

There will be no class on Monday, May 26, 2014. The program is open to school-age children ages Kindergarten and up as well as adults.

This ongoing program has been running for 10 years through the Recreation Department with instructors from the Jersey Judo Karate Academy of Kenvil teaching the Isshinryu style of Karate. The skills learned help students develop coordination, balance, posture, and endurance. Students also gain self-confidence and discipline through progression in karate, while studying the authentic form of Asian Martial Arts.

Jersey Judo Karate Academy is run by Sensei Rick Norris, a Ku-Dan (9th degree black belt), and the Academy’s staff includes more than 50 certified, fully trained black belts.

Classes are held in the Community Lodge at Camp Jefferson on Weldon Road at 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for grades K-4 and 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. for grades 5 and older.

Registration is through the Jefferson Township Recreation Department or by mail; and the office is located at Camp Jefferson, 81 Weldon Road and is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The program fee is $55 per person with a discount of $5 per person for the second, third, etc. sibling enrolled.
