ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Congratulations to our students who promoted this past week, including Mr. Jason Stair who promoted to 1st Kyu Brown Belt, Mr. Chuck Townsend who promoted to 4th Kyu Green Belt, and Mr. Steven Messer who promoted to 10th Kyu Yellow-Stripe! Great work everyone, and many thanks to our testing board which included Sensei Hali Serrian of Athens Yoshukai Karate, and our CCY instructors: Sensei Hines, Sensei Magill, Sensei Powell, and Sensei Smith. Osu!
Clarke County Yoshukai Karate is led by Sensei Sherrie Hines, a local attorney and
a 2nd Degree Black Belt and Certified Yoshukai Karate instructor through the World Yoshukai Karate Kobudo Organization (WYKKO). Sensei Hines, through a partnership with the East Athens Community Center, offers free karate classes to the residents of Athens-Clarke County and surrounding areas. Classes began on March 28, 2011 and are taught by Sensei Hines along with her assistant instructors.  Classes are open to all, and new students are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. 

All classes are free, though students will be responsible for buying their own uniforms, equipment, and weapons (as they need them) and paying their own membership and testing fees to the WYKKO.

No experience or athletic ability is required.  Each student is judged based on their own improvement and development within the style, and each student moves at his or her own pace.  Yoshukai karate can provide skills and training for a wide range of individuals, including seniors and people with certain disabilities.

Directions 

Clarke County Yoshukai is always accepting new students.  Athens Yoshukai, our sister-school taught by Sensei Erik Hofmeister & Sensei Hali Serrian, only accepts students at certain times throughout the year, but Clarke County Yoshukai accepts students year-round. Please come check out one or both of our dojos as we'd love to have you join our classes! And for Athens-Clarke County Employees, remember that participation at Clarke County Yoshukai is approved by the Wellness Program!
