Starting April 25th, students may wear “summer uniforms” which means approved t-shirts (Dunamis Karate shirts, Hyper shirts & Chun Kuk Do shirts only) in place of the gi tops.  If you have Dunamis Karate shorts, you may also wear those in place of your gi pants – Dunamis Karate short ONLY – No other shirts/shorts are approved!

If you don’t have approved tees or shorts, purchase some now from the pro-shop … if we don’t have your size, don’t worry.  We will be ordering again very soon, so be sure to let us know your size!!

Train with 9th Degree Master Ed Saenz

9th Degree Chuck Norris System Black Belt, Master Ed Saenz, will be in Beaufort, SC for a special training event this month.  While here, he has agreed to teach some special seminars for under Black Belt students as well.

The seminars will be held at Club Karate (10 Sams Point Rd. Suite B-3, Lady's Island, SC 29907) on Friday March 18th.

The Kids seminar, for Orange Belts and up, will be from 6:30-7:30.  The cost is $15.

The Adult seminar will be from 7:30 - 9:00 and the cost is only $20.

We don't have many opportunities to train with such an elite instructor in the Chuck Norris System ... especially an opportunity this close to home.  Please make every effort to attend.  You will not be disappointed!

Want to know more about Master Saenz?
9th Degree Black Belt, Ed Saenz started his martial arts journey in 1967 as a student of Chuck Norris.  Master Saenz has spent his entire professional life in the martial arts and fitness business.  Prior to opening his own school, he served as the Director of Operations for Mr. Norris' KickStart program where he was responsible for instructors, school operations and program development.  He was in charge of overseeing more than 6,000 students and more than 40 Black Belt instructors in the Houston and Dallas areas. In 2011, Master Saenz returned to teaching full time in his own school, Ed Saenz School of Martial Arts, in Tomball, TX.  He serves on the UFAF Board of Directors as the UFAF Director of Training and Advancement.  He is highly sought after for instruction in private lessons and special seminars.
