Moving Zen classes teach a traditional form of Japanese karate. Students learn skills and philosophy as a means of developing their bodies, minds and spirit. We offer classes for children, families and adults. Benefits are seen in school and work, and in relationships with family, peers and teachers.

Location for Classes
All classes are held at Sensei Ken Bernstein’s Dojo (school) at 5 Hedgerow Lane, Amherst MA 01002.
There are formalities observed in our school, including bowing, informed by the Japanese culture, that are explained in your introductory lesson.
If hazardous driving conditions require closure of the dojo a message will be placed on the phone answering machine.
What to Wear
New students should wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing to their first class. We wear a traditional, white karate uniform (gi). Gi’s will be available for purchase at the dojo. No special footwear will be required as all classes are conducted in bare feet.
For more information, contact Sensei Ken Bernstein.
