Class Schedule

Special Events:

  • I have been asked to post up the dates for Sensei Johnston's "Spring Camp", out in San Juan Capistrano, for any one interested in a bit of travel and connecting with the karateka (indirectly and directly) with the quality of training I received in my "early years." Sensei Johnston is currently a 7th dan and was resposible for a number of solid karate dojos on the East coast, inluding the one that Peter Young, Paul Silvis and Barry Nyer trained at. The camp will be on the first weekend of April (April 1-3). For more information, contact HESSAM BOROUMAND, the contact guy for Johnston's dojo, at

  • Feb 14 collegiate tourney and camp (anyone can come and train) Williamsport PA. Six are going from Salve.

  • April 2 East Coasts, west Chester (by philly) have to be brown belt to compete but fun to watch. 

  • Last two weekends of April- One will be test with Robin Rielly. The other is our annual beach training, followed by a bbq at my place. (Normally on a Sunday).
  • It is a long way out still, but just so it can find it's way to your calendars - the ISKF Master's Camp is June 10- 17 this year. The link is if you want to look up more details. Go to the main page and click on the GASSHUKU picture.

Club Headquarters/ Main Studio:

Our current class schedule, at the Cape Ann YMCA, is as follows:

Tuesdays: 8pm-9pm
Thursdays: 8pm-9pm

Classes are held  in the "Main Studio" at  the Cape Ann YMCA. Please mention that you are there for the karate classes. See our contact page for the address and directions/maps. 

The classes are free to North Shore YMCA members and a $20/class "floor fee" is available for non members.  Non members can also opt to pay a $75 monthly fee for just the karate class (it is much more cost efficient to just become a member).  If you are interested in either our club or a YMCA membership on the whole, a 3 day trial pass is available at- 

Additional times will be sent out as available, including any belt-testing or special guest events. Should we need to cancel a class, a notification will go out to everyone on our member list.  Please consider joining our facebook page for updates, cool events and some fun videos.

Sister Dojo/ Bonus Training:

For a bit of extra/ bonus training, The Shodokan ( in Beverly MA, offers solid Shotokan Karate with an Arnis influence.  Classes meet once a week.

             Sundays: 10:30am- 11:30am

These classes run separately from the Cape Ann Shotokan Club, under the instruction of Sensei Michael Levin.  Sensei Levin offers a fantastic compliment to the CASC midweek, evening schedule for those interested in increasing their training to 3 days a week or need a bit more flexibility in their schedule.  Due to the more "travel friendly" time of Sensei Levin's class, he has graciously offered the CASC to use this space/ time slot to work with "guest senseis" and offer special training seminars through out the year.  

Sensei Levin's classes are typically offered for $30/ month or $10/ class (seminars/ guest instructors may require an additional fee).  For more information on this space/ class, feel free to contact Sensei Levin at or call Matthew Natti (see contact page).

Please try to show up 10- 15 minutes early, so class can start on time .  It is customary to bow as you enter and leave the training space.  If you show up late (it is better to be late than to not show up at all), please bow in and sit just inside the door until the instructor invites you to join the class.  Although a traditional karate uniform (gi) is the preferred attire for class, comfortable "work out" clothes are completely acceptable.  Please do not wear shoes into the studio for karate classes. 
Thank you.
