About the Karate Club
The Karate Club offers instruction in traditional Okinawan Karate to the Carleton student body. The aim of Karate is the perfection of the practitioner's character, achieved through intensive physical training and mental discipline. The Karate Club is closely tied to the karate PE class, which meets twice a week to train under Sensei Bob Dobrow. There are also more relaxed practices on Saturdays. The Shorin-Ryu form of karate, which the Carleton club practices, concentrates on perfection of the basics and katas. Karate is active all year around. Everyone from beginners to experts are welcome. The Carleton club is affiliated with the Ueshiro Shorin-Ryu Karate Dojo of Northfield. The dojo is part of Ueshiro Shorin-Ryu Karate USA, founded by Grand Master Ansei Ueshiro.
The Carleton Karate Club was founded in the 1960's and has been training students ever since. This year, the club began to practice Shorin-Ryu Karate under Sensei Bob Dobrow, San-Dan (third degree black belt) and Shihan of the Northfield dojo.
