Come Learn Karate
Come learn Karate. Readers have asked about Paul's classes. Last year, he opened our Karate dojo (school) in downtown Philadelphia.
Paul Sensei (Sensei is your teacher) teaches Shotokan karate in a kind and fun environment. Paul advanced to third degree Black Belt rank (SanDan) last year, and is a gentle patient teacher. Every class works on several katas (forms), kicks, punches, blocks, strikes, and self-defense partner drills. Beginners through black belts are welcome.
Classes are small. Beginners and kyu rank (below black belt) usually have black belt students to work with personally. Classes are Mondays 8 - 9:30 pm and Thursdays 7:30 - 9:00 p.m.
We rent a lovely dojo space in a friendly Aikido school. We often do not make as much through student fees as the rent, but we train for the pure, the skill, and the love of the form. Enter on 21st Street between Chestnut and Sansom, 2nd Floor, end of the hall to your right.
Here is Paul Sensei on the cover of the book Healthy Martial Arts. He trains without gyms, eating meat, or supplements:
Paul also teaches Do-It-Yourself home repair and Green home repair classes at Temple U Center City.
