Structure is necessary while attending class either in the dojo or remote video training. Please refrain from distractions such as answering you phone or taking selfies. Also, stay in frame of the camera, ask others for private time to focus and participate at all times. Tuition remittance for Los Gatos Saratoga Recreation or Menlo Park recreation should be paid directly to the governing city agency. Tuition remittance for off site sessions, Shelter in place, and/or remote video training should be sent via Paypal, Venmo or Square in a timely manner. Please save your digital receipts. SKSV tuition is tax deductible (SEIWAKAI KARATE of SILICON VALLEY is a registered non-profit).

In the very near future – depending on my evolving work schedule, the Saturday and Sunday schedule may be revised until my on duty hours are set Monday – Friday. Until then I’ll continue to expand available classes at the primary two locations of Menlo Park recreation and Los Gatos Saratoga Recreation.
