In 2017, the Glass Rec Center will offer GoJu-Ryu karate classes. GoJu-Ryu was founded by Higaonna Kanyryo from Okinawan, Japan.

This type of Karate is designed to teach fundamentals and basic techniques of self-defense to children and adults. Students will develop new self-defense skills, learn the history of GoJu-Ryu karate, improve their self-image and, most importantly, have fun.

Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. for beginner and intermediate students. Advanced student classes will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Students ages four to adult are welcome. The cost is $30 per month or $10 per session.
