Home School Families
Martial Arts for Home School Children and Their Parents
Rayford Shorin-Ryu Karate & Kobudo began serving the Hickman Charter School program as its vendor for martial arts in the school year beginning in 2011. Since that time, a few independant home school families have joined us and in the beginning of the school year in 2012,Connecting Waters Charter School has also added Rayford Shorin-Ryu Karate & Kobudo to its vendor list. It is a real joy to serve these families that are going the "extra mile" for their children. This is a daytime class that meets twice per week at a convenient time for all involved. We are encouraging parents to train with their children by offering one parent to train without charge. The commitment of teaching martial arts full time has brought forth many great opportunities such as providing a service to Home School families.
2016-2017 School Year
The Plagenza family is the program's earliest students and the parent is soon to be examined for Black Belt.
Growing up in the dojo.
We are certainly grateful for the support of the Kano family!
A "Bonding" Activity
A public school would have these children separated. Instead the Cambridge children are training together and getting closer to each other.
Parents and Their Children Learning Together
The Ramirez family is a great deal of fun to work with! There is absolutely never a dull moment with Kara Ramirez!
A Growing Class with Growing Children
The two on the left are 2 of the 4 members of the Wilkerson family that trains in our school's regular classes and Hanshi Sid Rayford is standing next to the oldest boy of the Perez family.
The Haro Family
Anthony and Felicia Haro have committed to training along with their children and as is the case with the Wilkerson family and others, they also train in the evening classes. Members of this family sometimes train for 4 hours per day.
