Karate for Christ

Karate for Christ is a six-week program offered as an alternative to P.E. The program has a traditional karate/self defense structure, while emphasizing Biblical principles and Christian values. Classes are structured to increase awareness, respect for self and others, and self-discipline. 


Classes are taught by Sensei Shawn Danaher, a SMMS alumni (class of 1996). Shawn has been trained for over twenty years in the traditional Japanese Martial Art of Shotokan Karate and has a BA in Psychology from Cal-State Channel Islands. Karate for Christ classes do have a small fee attached and are held during your child’s regular P.E. time.
