House of Shotokan’s Karate Camp in Orange Walk

Students between the ages of five to thirteen in Orange Walk District can learn some basic Karate skills before they head off to a new school year on Monday. The free camp, which is being hosted by the House of Shotokan, will also include motivational presentations to the students as well as prizes for participation. Shihan Ray Kelly of the House of Shotokan told us that the students will pick up new techniques while having fun at the Karate camp.

“Some of the different techniques are some of the basic karate movements, such as, feet together, hands at your sides; horse stances; punching from the horse stances; just basic moves. We will also be doing a little running with them, push-ups, jumping jacks, sit-ups and we will also have Karate game time with them so that they learn that Karate is a fun way how they can exercise their body and mind.”
