Students at CBA are learning Karate with Sensei Andre of Genbukai Virginia, which is part of an international organization with headquarters in California.

Students practice a traditional Okinawan style of Karate known as Shi-to-Ryu. Sensei Andre holds black belts in three different styles and he has been teaching Karate in the United States since 2002.

Karate is a physical art, a technique of self-defense and a sport. One of its greatest attributes is that anyone, irrespective of size, age, or gender can practice this art. With regular training, one can improve physical fitness, stamina, fine and gross motor skills. Long term benefits include increasing self-control, building focus and self-confidence as well as encouraging a positive sense of self.

Classes with CBA are on Thursdays and Saturdays and students have the option of working out one day a week or both days, depending on their schedules. Parents are welcome to join and train on Saturday mornings! Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
